Breakfast has been touted as the most important meal of the day.
On June 2, the Stearns County Farm Bureau made sure the more than 1,500 visitors to the Vogt Dairy Farm were served a hearty breakfast and had an opportunity to learn more about the farm to fork connection.
Breakfast on the Farm is an annual event that draws people from both rural and urban areas to explore the workings of farm production and educate consumers on where food is grown, produced, processed and eventually ends up in the grocery store.
UMASH was part of this year’s Breakfast on the Farm in Stearns County, Minnesota to bring an ag safety and health component.
Diane Kampa and Carol Peterson engaged attendees to think about farm safety in a variety of ways – including tractor and ATV safety, sun protection, and proper handwashing – particularly in animal settings. We used a scavenger hunt and a safety prize wheel which added fun to the learning for youth, adults and families.
Breakfast on the Farm is a great setting to get the word out about life/work on the farm and agriculture safety and health all in one place.
