Black Locust Farms LLC hosts Breakfast on the Farm

Aug. 22, 2013 | 0 comments

A Montcalm County dairy farm will host Breakfast on the Farm, a fun, family-friendly event that gives non-farmers a chance to see what modern food production is all about.

This free event will take place from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Sept. 7, at Black Locust Farms LLC, 5644 N. Derby Road, Stanton. Breakfast will be served from 9 a.m.-noon.

Consumers will enjoy a free (with ticket) pancake breakfast featuring Michigan-made products and be able to take self-guided tours of the farm to get a firsthand look at how this modern dairy farm operates.

Tours will include educational exhibits where volunteers will be available to answer questions.

Children will enjoy bottle-feeding dairy calves, seeing an ultrasound performed on a pregnant cow, and learning how the large equipment they'll see comes in handy for growing and harvesting corn, soybeans, wheat, oats and alfalfa on the family's 900 acres of land.

Conservation is a main priority for Black Locust Farms LLC.

The farm tour and breakfast are free, but tickets are limited and required to eat breakfast.

The dates and Breakfast on the Farm host farms for 2013 are:

• Aug. 17, Humm Farm LLC, Breckenridge (Gratiot County);

• Sept. 7, Black Locust Farms LLC, Stanton (Montcalm County); and

• Sept. 21, Ferry Farms LLC, Litchfield (Hillsdale County).
