FAYETTE, Ohio (WTVG) - If you're looking for an opportunity to grab a good breakfast surrounded by family fun and other members of your community, then you'll want to check out the 2019 Breakfast on the Farm at Henricks & Krieger Dairy in Fayette on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 from 9am-1pm. Even better? The event is free and open to the public.
The event looks to provide attendees with a locally produced mean while also offering them a chance to get a firsthand look at how that food is produced. Participants will be able to enjoy a breakfast featuring an Ohio-grown and produced menu as well as a self-guided tour. The tour will include opportunities to meet the Henricks and Krieger families, as well as learn about bio-security, animal well-being, grain bin safety, water quality, cow nutrition, milk quality & safety, and nutrient management. There will be children’s activities and the opportunity to interact with commodity groups.
“As the gap between producer and consumer continues to grow, we really want to offer the opportunity for the public to experience how farmers care for their animals, how they produce wholesome and safe food and how they care for the land," says Eric Richer, OSU Extension Educator. "If you or your family have never been to a dairy farm, this farm tour is designed for you!”
The event does require pre-registration, which you can do at their website. Tickets will be printable after web registration. You can also register by contacting the following offices: Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District, Lucas County Soil and Water Conservation District, OSU Extension Fulton County Office, OSU Extension Lucas County Office or the Farm Bureau Offices in Pettisville and Woodville. Henricks & Krieger Dairy is located at 14692 County Road 16-3, Fayette, Ohio.
