It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again! The annual Breakfast on the Farm event hosted by the Blue Earth and Le Sueur County Farm Bureaus is this Saturday, August 10th from 7:00 am to 11:30 am at the Dauk Family Farms (62536 Lake View Road, Madison Lake).  If you’ve never attended this wonderful event, there are several reasons you don’t want to miss it!  We’re here to let you know what to expect and some attractions that you don’t want to miss!

What is it?

A FREE pancake breakfast.  Yep, it’s totally free.  This event is made possible because of the support of an extensive group of sponsors and community supporters.  If you’re so inclined, free-will donations will be accepted at the event.  If you’re curious about the wait, the Breakfast on the Farm volunteers work very hard to keep the wait to 15-20 minutes, similar to ordering food at a restaurant. 

What else is there to see? 

The short answer is A LOT.  This event gives kids (and parents!) a chance to meet with farmers, see farm animals up close and climb on tractors.  There’s also a corn sandbox, a scavenger hunt, and face painting!  

What’s new this year?

One lucky attendee will win a chance to ride in the combine with Farmer Scott this fall!  Plus, you could have all the bragging rights by submitting a name for one of the Dauk’s calves during the breakfast!  

Breakfast on the Farm is a fantastic opportunity for community members to learn more about how farms operate as well as where our food comes from.  It’s all about connecting consumers and farm families in the area.  It’s a great event for kids and adults of all ages who are curious about farm life or just want to understand it better.
