In last week’s Spotlight, I mentioned the success of the St. Clair County Breakfast on the Farm (BOTF) at the Reid Dairy Farm in Jeddo, Mich. June 15. Michigan State University Extension St. Clair County put out a video that gives a clear picture of just how many people it takes to put on the event.
Ashley Kuschel, MSU Extension Breakfast on the Farm coordinator, said, “Around 300 people volunteered, making the event a huge success!”
Ashley works with Nancy Thelen, MSU Extension agriculture literacy educator, to put on all of the BOTF events.
BOTF is not just about eating a delicious breakfast. The event gives consumers an opportunity to learn about agriculture. They learn how farmers use technology to produce the food they enjoy. They can see firsthand how producers take good care of the animals to produce a healthy product for the consumer.
