Your letters: Breakfast on the Farm brings people together

One of the great things about being in Otter Tail County in the summer is all the unique events that bring the people of our communities together. One of these upcoming events is the local EOT Breakfast on the Farm, which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Mike and Sandy Dombeck Farm just northwest of Perham. Pancakes, sausage, & hash browns will be served from 7 a.m. to noon, all cooked and served by the members of the local farming community.

This family friendly event is a great opportunity for non-farming families to connect with our local farming families and ag professionals to learn about modern farming operations and how our local agricultural community works together to produce our food.

In addition to getting an old-fashioned breakfast, those that attend will have the chance to ask those burning questions they have always had about agricultural production in the area. Attendees will be able to get an up-close look at some of the machinery and technology used in farming today compared to what was used in the past. There will also be many different types of livestock displayed with 4H and FFA members on hand to assist with answering questions about the various animals, along with many activities for the kids.

I would like to encourage everyone to mark their calendars and plan to attend this family friendly event. Agriculture lives at the core of our society in Otter Tail County. The EOT Breakfast on the Farm is one way we can ensure that we build and maintain a connection and appreciation for the farming community.
