Celebrate June Dairy Month and enjoy a pancake breakfast, a farm wagon tour and much more at the Kanabec-Isanti County Farm Bureau sponsored Breakfast on the Farm from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 18, at the Haubenschild Family Dairy Farm. The farm is located between Cambridge and Princeton at 35050 Nacre St. NW, Princeton, MN.
This is an opportunity to learn where your milk comes from, see a live in-action modern dairy operation, and meet the Haubenschild farm family. Visitors will see a sustainable environment-friendly 1,600-acre farm with about 2,500 dairy cattle operated by a three-generation family that is passionate about conservation, recycling, renewable energy, protecting the environment, caring for their animals, ensuring the highest quality milk and food production.
Breakfast on the Farm is an exceptional event for visiting youth and families to see a petting zoo, watch cows being milked, see how cows are fed, what they eat and where they sleep on soft recycled fiber beds. Visitors are invited to ride tractor and horse-drawn “people-mover” wagons with farm guides who provide a 10-stop informational farm tour.
Visitors will be able to enjoy a pancake breakfast catered by Chris Cakes known for flipping pancakes and fresh cold milk along with sausage, juice and coffee for $5. Exhibits with samples, recipes and more will be handed out by Princess Kay, local ag businesses and organizations.
A unique feature of the tour will be to learn how the cows’ manure is used to create biogas and electricity. The biogas runs a generator that supplies 2,000 kilowatt hours per day of ‘Green cow power’ electricity.
