2015 Breakfast on the Farm 

Serving breakfast for a crowd is no easy task but that’s exactly what the Michels family did on Sunday, June 28 for the 2015 Fond du Lac Area Breakfast on the Farm.  Over 4,000 people joined the Fond du Lac Area Agri-Business Council and the Michels Farms for the annual event, celebrating local agriculture and June Dairy Month. Over 3,400 attendees enjoyed a delicious, farm-fresh breakfast and more than 2,500 Culver’s sundaes were served – with proceeds benefiting local agriculture education and promotion.

A unique feature at this year’s Breakfast brought together agriculture and art and resulted in numerous masterpieces. The Cow Cut Out Contest and Parade showcased 25 cow cut outs, decorated by area grade school students. Visitors to the Breakfast were able to vote for their favorite cows and as a result, $200 was raised – benefiting the Agricultural Ambassador program. The top two cows were from Eden Elementary and Rosendale Primary and the winning artists will receive cash prizes donated by Ruedinger Farms.  

Always highly anticipated, the Agricultural Ambassador Money Raffle was also a tremendous success in 2015. This year, $7,500 was raised and ten winners received cash prizes: 1st place Beatriz Vazquez of Fond du Lac, 2nd place Ryan Clark of Mayville, 3rd place Glenn Arveson of Wautoma, 4th place Dan Zeleske of Fond du Lac, 5th place Ron and Chris Schwenck of Malone, 6th place Dick Schaefer of Malone, 7th place David Engel of Mt Calvary, 8th place Amy Krupka of Amherst, 9th place Pat Broeske of Brownsville and 10th place Dave Thiel of Fond du Lac.

Breakfast on the Farm provides an opportunity for community members to experience agriculture and enjoy a morning out on the farm!  Attendees were provided a behind-the-scenes look at a thriving, family-owned dairy farm, complete with tours and many dairy and agriculture related activities for all ages!  And of course, it wouldn’t be breakfast without a hearty meal, shared with family and friends. Funds from the Breakfast, a program of the Fond du Lac Area Agri-Business Council (a division of the Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce), help to promote agriculture in the greater Fond du Lac area.  

The Fond du Lac Area Agri-Business Council is cultivating passion for agriculture in the community through education, promotion and partnerships.  It is the hope of the Council to ensure that neighbors appreciate the diverse impact of agriculture in their lives, community and world.
