Breakfast on the Farm is Thursday

MARSHALL — The Lyon County Farm Bureau is holding its first Breakfast On The Farm from 6-9 a.m. Thursday at the Lanoue Farm site located in rural Marshall.

Buses will shuttle people to and from the Lanoue Farm, which is located at 2229 County Road 67, Marshall. The bus will be at the parking lot outside of the Marshall High School theater. The cost is $1. Ticket sales are available at Marshall Runnings and Hy-Vee as well as at the location.

The breakfast includes Chris’s Pancakes, sausage and juice.

Activities include interactive pork, corn and soybean trailer presentations and farm tours. Animals that will be present are pigs, beef cattle, goats, rabbits, and chickens. People will be given the opportunity to view new farm equipment and to talk with experts in the farming industry.

“Breakfast On The Farm is a program that was started to help increase agricultural literacy and understanding throughout the general population,” said Paul Lanoue, the host of the event. “One of the main goals with Breakfast On The Farm is to connect the consumers with the farmers, and to show that farmers care about the consumers and the community.”

Lanoue said many people have had exposure to some aspect of farming in their lifetime, but agricultural practices and techniques are constantly changing, and with that so should people’s understanding of it.

“We want people to get actual honest answers from real farmers instead of getting information from unreliable sources,” he said.

The event is sponsored by: Lyon County Farm Bureau, Lyon County Corn and Soybean Growers and Minnesota Pork Producers.
