This conference explores aspects of farming and food production in the Fens of South Lincolnshire, an activity which has earned for the area the title of the Larder of England.
The conference venue is the National Centre for Food Manufacturing at the Holbeach campus of the University of Lincoln. The Centre's facilities include a complete factory process area where we will have the opportunity to see how produce is processed and packed.
Organised by the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology and held on Saturday 16th October 2010 in Holbeach, Spalding.
