The day started with pouring rain, thunder and lightning, yet nearly 2,300 people came to the first 2018 Michigan State University Extension Breakfast on the Farm event of the season.
Since 2009, more than 85,000 children and adults have attended Breakfast on the Farm events throughout Michigan to learn about where food comes from.
Michigan State University Extension brought the inaugural “Breakfast on the Farm” event to Dutch Meadows Dairy, a family-owned dairy farm owned by the Tony and Patti Jandernoa family near the mid-Michigan town of St. Johns, on June 20, 2009. Following the success of the initial event, interest in replicating Breakfast on the Farm led to the formation of several annual events across Michigan.
