THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Marinette Co. Breakfast on the Hartwig Farm
The Marinette County Breakfast on the Farm will be held on Sunday, June 29, hosted by Keith and Nancy Hartwig and family on their dairy farm, located north of County B on Hartwig Road, three miles west of Peshtigo, or three miles east of County W in the town of Grover.
Dairy products will be showcased in many ways at the breakfast. Included in the events will be the full, all-you-can-eat breakfast that will include buttermilk pancakes, eggs with cheese and ham, sausages, white and chocolate milk, cheese curds, locally-produced maple syrup, applesauce, and ice cream. There will be sampling of other dairy products including smoothies, string cheese, and multiple types of cheese cubes.
Along with the eating and sampling, attendees will learn more about agriculture, livestock, and the soil that supports area farms. They can walk throughout most of the farm and view all the different animals, from the milking herd down through the heifers, steers, and young calves. Many of the other species of livestock found on area farms will be present in the petting zoo area.
Youth activities will include a kiddie tractor pull, face painting, walking comedy act, sand pile, bounce houses, games area, and others. There will be live music, displays and educational exhibits, and a walk-in soil pit.
Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. to noon, rain or shine. Hartwig Road will be one-way, north only, on the day of the event, so enter the site from County B. Te event is coordinated and conducted by dozens of volunteers. If questions, call either Corey Kuchta at 920-660-4182, or Scott Reuss at the Marinette County UW-Extension office at 715-732-7510.
The Marinette County Breakfast on the Farm is completely planned and delivered by volunteers, literally hundreds of them on the day of the breakfast itself. All types of help are needed, from working with food preparation, serving, cleaning, youth activities, ticket booth, and many other ways. Voluntees get a free meal, and time to view the farm after or before a shift. Two shifts of volunteers are needed. Shift A from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. with volunteer breakfast starting at 6:30 a.m. and public service at 7:30 a.m. Shift B from 9:45 a.m. to completion.
