Following the presentation, guests will enjoy a lovely tea. Sip specialty teas selected to pair with scones, salad,  tea sandwiches and some sweet treats. The proceeds benefit the Friends of Springton Manor Farm and their mission to promote preservation, education, outreach, cultural and community activities.
