Breakfast on the Farm (BOTF) gives consumers and farm neighbors a first-hand look at modern food production, and the farm families who work hard to produce a safe, wholesome food supply for Michigan communities and the world. Find out where our next Breakfast on the Farm events are taking place.

History

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 three events in 2010, eight for 2011, eight for 2012, five for 2013, three in 2014, five in 2015, two in 2016 and two in 2017.

Since 2009, more than 80,854 children and adults have attended Breakfast on the Farm events throughout Michigan to learn about where food comes from. At these events, attendees had a chance to learn how cows are milked, pet a calf, take wagon rides, see tractors and eat ice cream. Questions about farming and food production are encouraged.
