An Allegan dairy farm will host a free, educational event that is designed to help non-farm residents learn about modern agriculture.
"Breakfast on the Farm" will take place Oct. 6 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the John Schaendorf Dairy, located at 2730 130th St.
Visitors can take self-guided tours to see where the farm's 1,600 cows are milked and housed. They can also enjoy a free (with ticket) breakfast featuring Michigan-made products. The event also features hands-on children's activities.
Participants can learn about the process of making milk, a cow's life cycle and farmland conservation practices.
The farm tour and breakfast are free, but tickets are required for the breakfast and can be obtained from local resources.
Breakfast on the Farm is offered by Michigan State University (MSU) Extension.
