2022 Program Update
Thanks for your continued interest in Breakfast on the Farm. After a three-year hiatus, we are glad to be back and we are excited to be planning an event for September 2022! When MSU Extension started Breakfast on the Farm in 2009, we never dreamed that we would help Michigan farmers welcome nearly 90,000 consumers to their farms! This year, the Tolan family of Risky Endeavor Dairy in Alpena County will be hosting an event on September 24th, from 9am – 1 pm. We hope you can join us and until then, 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.
