June Dairy Month offerings abound after pandemic hiatus

Wisconsin State Farmer
While some gatherings may look different in 2021, farm hosts and dairy promotion groups have labored to provide a way to celebrate June Dairy Month.

For nearly half a century, Wisconsin farmers have opened wide the farm gate, welcoming visitors to tour their farms and enjoy a freshly made breakfast, showcasing the state's bounty of agricultural products. 

The on-farm events are a centerpiece and tribute to June Dairy Month. Not only do folks enjoy a hearty breakfast, but farm hosts are sure to provide educational opportunities for visitors.

The onset of the coronavirus pandemic shuttered breakfasts across the state, and organizers were quick to plan virtual events to celebrate National Dairy Month. While some gatherings may look different this year, farm hosts, dairy promotion groups, agricultural societies and county Farm Bureaus teams have labored to provide a way to pay tribute to the state's farming community. Whether it be a drive-thru farm tour, a carry out bag chock full of dairy products or an on-farm experience, there's a way to enjoy June Dairy Month safely.
