Changes are underway at Norwich Farms, a 6-acre complex with agricultural buildings, a classroom and a farmhouse on Turnpike Road. Vermont Technical College (VTC), which had used the site for dairy education, will discontinue its programs in Norwich this spring. This decision creates opportunities for alternative uses of the property which adjoins UVLTâ€™s Brookmead Conservation Area.
UVLTâ€™s acquisition of the Brookmead land included an irrevocable option to buy the farm complex if the school ever stopped using it for agricultural education to ensure the buildings and land could remain together should VTCâ€™s priorities change. We are currently leading an exploration of feasible partnerships and programs that will advance our conservation mission and promote the health, sustainability and vitality of the Upper Valley.
