Breakfast on the Farm

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 several more BOTF events across Michigan. 

Since 2009, more than 74,740 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.
