Breakfast on the Farm will be heading to Mecosta County Aug. 16. The fun, free and family-friendly event is designed to give consumers a taste of modern farm production.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at De Grins Oer Dairy, 2386 Adams Rd. in Blanchard, Michigan. Breakfast will be served from 9 a.m. to noon.

The farm has been awarded the 10-year Quality and the Outstanding Environmental Stewards awards from Michigan Milk Producers Association.

At Breakfast on the Farm, visitors will have the opportunity to take self-guided tours to see how the farm’s cows are milked and housed, as well as the daily practices that go into running a dairy farm. They will also be able to see the equipment it takes to run a farm with 900 acres of crops. A pancake breakfast featuring Michigan products will be provided in the morning and children will have the chance to participate in fun, educational activities.

The farm tour and breakfast are free, but tickets are limited and required to eat breakfast. Free tickets for the Mecosta County event can be picked up after July 16 at locations listed here.
