On June 26th at Fendryk Brothers Farm in Crivits, WI, feast on pancakes, cheese curds, sausages, maple syrup, milk, juice, and ice cream sundaes for $7/$4 kids, then head outside to enjoy the petting zoo, face painting, balloons, kids’ bouncy play area, wagon rides, and music, and view the barns and cattle. At Achenbach’s Hy-View Farms in Eastman on June 4th, dine on pancakes, sausage, cheese curds, cottage cheese, pudding, applesauce, sliced cheese, milk, coffee, milk shakes, and frozen custard, then tour the dairy operation. Those are just two of the dozens of family farms hosting the public for farm breakfasts as part of the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board‘s Dairy Days of Summer.
During the month of June, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a bountiful farm breakfast for just a few dollars, visit with the family farmers of America’s Dairyland, and see how a dairy farm actually works. The activities and menus vary from farm to farm but, at every one of the farms, the cost is low, the families are welcoming, and the rural landscape is a bucolic change from suburbia. As the Milk Marketing Board says, “You haven’t experienced summer in Wisconsin until you’ve had breakfast on a farm.” See the Farm Breakfasts website for a listing of all the participating family farms, along with the menu and activities planned at each site.
