Wordless Wednesday - A Wisconsin Dairy Breakfast

During June Dairy Month, several farmers in Wisconsin give residents the chance to visit a farm by hosting dairy breakfasts. Attending a dairy breakfast is a great family activity so this past Saturday morning we took a trip and enjoyed a yummy breakfast of dairy products including eggs, sausage, pancakes, cheese, yogurt and more. After we finished eating the kids visited the petting zoo area and my daughter and I rode in a wagon pulled by a team of horses. We also made sure to check out the facilities - this particular dairy farm sells calves and had over 800 calves for the kids to visit and see up close. That many calves means a lot of bottles!

If you'd like to attend a breakfast, there is a list of locations at Wake Up With Dairy http://www.wakeupwithdairy.com/

Wow- that looks fun! I'm sure my older kid would get a kick out of "milking" the cow!

What a cool event. We're doing are best to line up a dairy field trip - but that just sounds like fun!

What a neat experience for the kids! My girls would go nuts over the calves, my husband- the food!

Happy WW!

I bet you and the kids had a lot of fun. I remember hearing about these when I lived out there but I never attended a dairy breakfast. There is always a lot of fun activities going on in for June Dairy Month. I sure miss Wisconsin summers.

Have a wonderful day!

What a fun morning! We spent a night at a working dairy farm/B&B in PA last summer and it was a preschooler's paradise. I'm hoping to go back again soon.
