2020 Program Update
Thanks for your continued interested in Breakfast on the Farm. When MSU Extension started this program in 2009, we never dreamed that we’d help farmers welcome nearly 90,000 consumers to their farms! Because of the continued need for social distancing in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic, we are not hosting a Breakfast on the Farm in 2020. Though we won’t be hosting a Breakfast on the Farm, we encourage you to keep following us on Facebook as we share information with you about agriculture and farming in Michigan.

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.
