Vermont's first “Breakfast on the Farm” event comes to Ferrisburgh, Vermont on Saturday, August 22, 2015! This free, public celebration is designed to teach people about modern dairy farming and introduce the farm families who work hard to produce a safe, wholesome product for Vermont and beyond. The Vander Wey family of Nea-Tocht Farm in Ferrisburgh will serve a delicious breakfast and offer self-guided walking tours of their dairy farm. There will be a variety of educational stations, and guests of all ages will get a peek into the life and business of farming, giving them an opportunity to learn where their food comes from. This event promises to be tasty, educational and fun for the whole family. This is a free event, but tickets must be reserved in advance through www.vermontbreakfastonthefarm.com.
The lead organizing partner is the Vermont Agency of Agriculture. Event sponsors include Hall Communications, New England Dairy Promotion Board, Poulin Grain, and Vermont Feed Dealers.
