Breakfast on the Farm Tablescape



Do you know what exciting event occurs every year in the month of June in Wisconsin?  It is June Dairy Month! As part of the celebration, Manitowoc County hosts Breakfast on the Farm where a selected farm is open to the public for touring, learning and partaking in a scrumptious country breakfast for a small cost, including fresh and tasty scambled eggs, sausage, cheese, biscuits and, of course, yummy, creamy ice cream sundaes.   There is always plenty to see and a great educational experience for young and old alike.  The date to remember for this year's event is Sunday, June 14, 2015.  It will be held at the Orthland Dairy Farm, S Union Road, Cleveland, Wisconsin from 8:00 a.m. to noon.

In honor of the yearly Breakfast on the Farm during June Dairy Month in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, I thought it would be fun to create a farm inspired tablescape.  Among my tablescape pictures, I have included various pictures of previous Breakfast on the Farm events in hope that it will spark your interest even more.

So lets start the tour and, of course, with the most adorable part of the tour first!  Isn't he adorable!



I just love cows!


Always a lot of people who attend.


So much so that they bring them in by bus loads.


Of course, they come for those fluffy, moist scrambled eggs!  Yum!  (That is the biggest skillet  I have ever seen and there is more than one!)


And who wouldn't miss out on that smooth and creamy ice cream sundaes.  Strawberry sundae, please!



Should you feel a little full from such a hearty breakfast, you can walk the grounds and learn about the farm's operation, including the machinery.  Pretty impressive when you stand so close to these huge pieces of equipment.



They are huge!!!



A wonderful opportunity for children and adults to get up close and personal with the farm animals.



One can always polka dance all of those calories away!


Or you can just walk among some of the most beautiful farm land.  Truly God's country.


 I hope you enjoyed the tour of previous events.  So as I anticipate this year's event, I busied myself with putting together a farm-inspired tablescape.   Gosh, now I think I will go and whip me up some scrambled eggs.  So giddy up and come on over to enjoy a day full of fun...join us in this year's Breakfast on the Farm. 
























Thank you for visiting.

  6. Thank you Bev. I love red spatterware and I am hoping to some day obtain the plates, cups and bowls. It just speaks of being in the country. I wish I knew something about raising farm animals. Perhaps I would raise a goat and a few chickens. Fun on the farm.

  7. What perfect dishes you chose for this theme! Everything on your table was, obviously, chosen with great care. I really enjoyed the photos, as I will be visiting your state later this year for the first time. Thanks for sharing all of the beauty!

  8. Thank you Diane. I hope you have a great time in Wisconsin. There are so many lovely places to see. We are close to Door County Peninsula which is filled with some towns packed full of shops, restaurants, hotels and, of course, their famous wineries. Perhaps if you are in Wisconsin, you might like to pay a visit to this charming area. Even take in a tour of the historical lighthouses which they have restored. Enjoy your time in Wisconsin!

  10. Love the tablescape! I'm from NW Wisconsin and we have June Dairy breakfasts too, of course. I have the same plates as those on your table. And of course, I love cows, especially Jerseys. Enjoyed my visit at your blog and am not following via GFC and Feedly! Have a nice weekend.

    1. Hi Judy,
      I am so glad to meet another Wisconsinite who loves cows as much as I do. I responded directly on your blog since I am having trouble getting my response messages to those who read and comment to my blog. I, too, love my Warren Kimble Barns tableware. I am so happy to be living near farmers who still have their red barns. I hope you enjoy this year's breakfast on the farm. I am glad they have it across the state. Enjoy your summer.

  16. I live near Madison, and we also, of course, celebrate June Dairy Month. Last weekend was "Cows on the Concourse" at the Madison Farmer's Market, and Dairy breakfasts are coming up. We are getting a lovely rain today and everything is so green and lush. It is a beautiful time of year in our state!

    1. Hi Chris,
      In the upcoming post which I will publish this weekend, I include the Green Bay Channel 5 news web link to the list of some of the areas Breakfast on the Farm events. I think if storms keep some from attending an event, there is always another event in the area. The occasional rain is keeping things the lush green. There has been only one day with higher humidity that made it rather uncomfortable, but so far, Wisconsin has glorious weather. I hope you enjoy the entire summer, Chris. Enjoy your farmer's markets (I hear Madison has the best) and the farm events! Visit again.

  17. Love the red and white farm look of this table, the r/w gingham tablecloth is the perfect backdrop. Terrific themed plates and love the little hats along with the rooster! Your centerpiece takes center stage. Enjoyed my visit here.
