Vernon Co. Dairy Breakfast draws in hundreds

De Soto, WI (WXOW) - -

The Wall-Stone Holsteins dairy farm hosted the 38th annual Vernon County Dairy Breakfast on Saturday.

Hundreds of visitors came out to experience the farm and celebrate the agriculture industry over pancakes, eggs, sausage, cheese, and even steak.

Organizers and visitors alike say the breakfast, located just southeast of De Soto, Wisconsin, was one of the biggest they've seen, granting nearly endless opportunity to open up the farm, raise awareness, and educate.

"We want to share the science in how they get their food produced; where they're food comes from," said  Wall-Stone Holsteins veterinarian and partner Anne Marie Elwing. "The second piece we did today was we want to show you how to prepare the food."

To help visitors learn to prepare their food at home, the event also featured not only a store to buy homemade products but cooking demonstrations as well.

The community also turned out in full today, not only in attendance but in support, bringing together helping hands from around the region.

"This year was amazing. We had probably double the volunteers," said Elwing. "We had people calling even from La Crosse saying I wanna participate, I wanna donate, I want my name out there saying I support the dairy farm."

Today's event ran from 7 am through 1 pm, even featuring live performances and wagon rides drawn by horses.

Luckily, if you missed today's dairy breakfast, you can visit a different dairy farm next weekend for the La Crosse County Dairy Breakfast. That event will be held at Creamery Creek Holsteins in Bangor. To learn more, click here.
