Celebrating Breakfast on the Farm 2017

Each year during June's Dairy Month, the Manitowoc Breakfast on the Farm event is attended by thousands of people who come from all over to tour and learn about a farm in Wisconsin, its animals and operation and to enjoy some of the really tasty breakfast foods served during the event, (not to mention, the ice cream sundae which is part of the finishing touch to the morning meal.)

In case you didn't catch the information in my previous post, A Watermelon Kind of Day and would like to attend while visiting Wisconsin, the event announcement is as follows:

For more details about the Manitowoc Breakfast on the Farm event or any other breakfast event in Wisconsin, you can visit the Dairy Days of Summer website to find a farm and get driving directions for your travel destination plans at

To gear up for this special day, I decided to create a farm breakfast of my own to commemorate this fun and educational family event.   My breakfast is different than the one offered by the farm, which includes a delicious scrambled egg omelet, sausage, cheese, raisin bread, yogurt, donut holes and ice cream sundaes, but my own menu selection exemplifies a wholesome and hearty country breakfast as well.  A stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes with whipped cream topped with black and white cow sprinkles is my favorite early morning meal. Some cheddar cheese cubes, strips of crispy bacon and a slice of juicy watermelon makes for a breakfast that is irresistible.

Perhaps some delightful flavored mini cheeseballs and crackers packaged in a mini egg carton is a perfect portable snack?  What a yummy treat to remember a day of fun.

Since children love to attend the farm breakfast, I thought it would be fun to include something for the table that children would find humorous and could make on their own.  These whimsical cow napkin covers turn a child's place-setting into something playful and cheerful as well as functional for all of those dribbles and sticky fingers. Underneath this adorable smiling cow is a napkin folded to form the face shape of the cow and its cute ears and it becomes ready to use in a instant.

Don't forget to sample some homemade pumpkin mini donuts covered in cinnamon sugar and served with some vanilla-cinnamon whipped cream.  These moist donuts are a favorite with adults and go well with a fresh cup of robust coffee.

Maybe some milk chocolate and white chocolate sheep pops would bring a smile to everyone who love farm animals?

How could the day get any better?

So circle your calendar and come visit the Manitowoc Breakfast on the Farm.  It will be a day to remember!


  1. Your blog is becoming a dangerous place for me to visit my friend! Everything looks AHMAZING!!

    What a wonderful place to have breakfast!

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)


    1. Hi Doreen,
      Thank you for your kind words. You live in similar surroundings. I seen all of your pictures of the valley. Beautiful area to have a farm and tend to cows. Your swans fend off all of your geese. Here we have tons of turkeys. We had a young deer play hide and seek with a turkey in the front yard last week. So comical. Best wishes selling your cabin. It is so darling. Have a nice weekend.

  2. So over the top cute!!! Your breakfast looks like quite a treat and those black cow sprinkles are just fabulous! The cow face napkin cover, the donuts, the lamb lollipop basket, oh how I wish I lived nearby!!

  3. Wouldn't it be so much fun? It would be great to get a group of ladies together, especially when they are on the hunt for themed table items. The hunt gets fun and crazy. Thank you for commenting on the Breakfast on the Farm 2017 post. Have a great week, Jenna.

  4. Love your sheep pops - how adorable!

  5. You have been terribly busy, Marsha. The pancakes have me drooling and those cheese balls in the mini egg cartons are perfect.
