Public invited to farm breakfast Saturday in Daggett
DAGGETT — The Menominee County Farm Bureau announces its 2018 Breakfast on the Farm will be hosted by the Brock Dairy Farm of Daggett on Saturday.
The public is invited to the farm, located at W5186 County Road 360, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Central time.
Breakfast will consist of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage and ice cream at a cost of $7 per adult and $5 per child 12 and under.
Brock Dairy Farm originated on 60 acres of land bought by Leonard and Mary Strohl in 1901.
In 1945, Art and Joe Strohl purchased the farm from their parents and also built a dairy processing and bottling facility on the farm.
Ralph and Mary Brock bought the farm and 40-cow milking herd in 1973. They focused time and energy on building the milking herd to 130 cows.
In 1991, Steve and Becky Brock bought the farm from Steve’s parents and over time expanded the farm with a double twenty herring bone milking facility in 2001.
The Brock family is currently milking 900 cows at two locations with their three grown children and spouses.
Breakfast on the Farm is both an opportunity for community fellowship and an educational event for the non-farming public.
Before or after breakfast, attendees are welcome to wander about the farm as they like. Local Farm Bureau and FFA volunteers will be present to help explain the basics of dairy farming to anyone with questions about where their milk comes from.
