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.
Learn more about where your food comes from and how it is produced at one of the scheduled Breakfast on the Farm events this summer. An experience that gives consumers a hands-on look at modern farming.
Place-based education provides the opportunity for consumers to experience modern farming in their local communities.
