This morning the Benton County American Dairy Association hosted Breakfast On The Farm at the Bemboom Farmon Mayhew Lake Rd. in Sauk Rapids and I was lucky enough to be in attendance! This annual event is a way to showcase one local dairy farm as part of National Dairy Month. Kids are invited to attend and learn how a working farm really works! They can get up close and personal with the animals and see what goes into producing the milk they enjoy drinking!

The morning started out as a typical morning on the farm. The quiet of the animals as they are eating, the fresh smell of barn in the air and the farm owners busy doing chores. That quickly changed as droves of people turned out to take part in the annual event!

Shortly after 8:30am, the lines started forming to get sausage, eggs and pancakes all made from scratch! People came from all over the area - Sartell, Foley and Gilman - to name a few!

The Benton County Dairy Princesses were in attendance helping people get registered for door prizes and helping them carry all their food back to their tables. I was lucky enough to break in line and grab a plate of food before I had to leave and head off to the next event - and let me tell you, it was delicious!
