The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports the 22nd annual Breakfast on the Farm is expected to attract 4,000 people to Badger Pride Dairy where they’ll tour the farm and collect food for area pantries.

Badger Pride Dairy, a fifth-generation farm, will share its heritage in an area with artifacts and information from its 154-year dairy history. Guests will be taken on hay wagon tours and can visit the area where calves are housed before stopping at the free-stall barns and milking parlor. The farm will also provide activities for kids all in an effort to educate the community of the origins of their food.

The Breakfast on the Farm is a cosponsored by the Manitowoc County Dairy Promotion Committee. The event selects a different farm each year so attendees can compare dairy operations. The farms vary in size, location and operation technique.

"It gives people a variety to show that not all dairies do it the same, but just because they don't do it the same doesn't mean it isn't right," Becky Salm, president of the committee told the Press-Gazette. "The core values are all the same."

This year’s event takes place in Valders, Wis. on June 12.
