Morton County dairy slates open house, “breakfast on the farm”

BISMARCK – Our urban cousins can learn more about North Dakota's dairy industry, while enjoying a delicious breakfast and entertainment for youngsters and grown-ups alike at “Breakfast on the Farm,” Saturday, June 21, at Northern Lights Dairy, south of Mandan.

“This is a wonderful, family-oriented activity that is both educational and fun,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.  “Andrew and Jennifer Holle deserve a lot of credit for helping people better understand where their food comes from and how it is produced.”

The free event is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Breakfast includes pizza, string cheese, yogurt, milk and ice cream. More traditional breakfast fare includes pancakes and sausage.

Hay rides, face painting, guided tours, a cookie walk, a petting zoo and more are some of the activities during the event.

To reach the Northern Lights Dairy from Main Street in Mandan, turn south on High 6 and drive about 14 miles. Turn right at 54th Street.
