Breakfast On The Farm!

You don’t have to get up with the roosters to enjoy Breakfast on the Farm!

Eight farm families across the state have opened their homes and barns to the public for breakfast and a look at their operations. The free program is ideal for families with young kids, who gain an understanding of where food comes from, but it’s open to anyone interested in farms and food production.

Two farm breakfasts remain: September 17 and 24

The first Breakfast on the Farm! event was held in 2009, and last year 3 farms hosted over 7,500 visitors.

Most of this year’s 8 breakfasts have already taken place, but you can still snag a ticket to the September 17 breakfast in the Eastern Upper Peninsula at Taylor Creek Farm in Pickford, and the September 24 breakfast at the Benthem Brothers Dairy in McBain, southeast of Cadillac.

Event hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (breakfast is served until noon), and may include tours of the farm and close-up view of the resident animals.

Check the Breakfast on the Farm! website to learn where you can pick up tickets in advance for each event; no tickets will be available on site.

Breakfast on the Farm! is a program of the Michigan State University Extension with support of 10 sponsoring organizations.
