History of the Event
This event was born from the heart of a group of dairy producers in central Alberta. Knowing that about 98% of people are removed from where their milk comes from, these farmers wanted to help connect with those that wanted to know more about what happens behind barn doors. So that is exactly what they did. 2013 was the first year it was hosted and welcome hundreds of people to in inaugural event. Since then, other farmers have taken notice and another Breakfast on the Dairy Farm started in southern Alberta in 2015.
