Breakfast on the Farm rescheduled for Saturday

By Jason Arndt

The Racine County Breakfast on the Farm made the difficult decision to cancel the event initially scheduled for June 22 at Schaal Dairy Farm in the Town of Dover following persistent overnight rainfall.

However, they have rescheduled the event for Saturday, June 29, from 7 until 11 a.m. at the Racine County Fairgrounds in Union Grove.

The cost of tickets will remain the same at $10 per person while children younger than 5 eat free during the event.

According to Schaal Dairy Farm officials, overnight rainfall caused muddy conditions on the property, resulting in no on-site parking.

Additionally, some tents had collapsed because of standing water following the rain, and created some unsafe conditions.

“We are sad to say the timing and the amount of rain we got this morning needs us to cancel the Breakfast on the Farm,” officials wrote on its Facebook page at 6 a.m. on June 22.

Later in the day, the breakfast committee announced it had rescheduled the event for Saturday on the fairgrounds. They also commended the Schaal family for showing willingness to host the event.

“The Racine County Breakfast on the Farm committee is very grateful to the entire Schaal family for agreeing to open up their farm to (the) community. We talk about the sponsors, the volunteers and visitors, but we couldn’t do this without the generosity of our host farm,” the committee wrote on its Facebook page. “Each breakfast starts with a family agreeing to share their farm with thousands of visitors for four hours on a Saturday morning.”

The rescheduled event will feature the same offerings, including a hearty breakfast consisting of sausage, eggs, orange juice, along with children’s activities.

The annual event helps Racine County Breakfast on the Farm with financing scholarships and other educational events.

Severe weather did more than just stop the Racine County Breakfast on Farm on June 22 with persistent rainfall continuing for most of the day into the evening hours.

According to the National Weather Service, there were two confirmed tornadoes in the Lake Geneva area on June 22, which caused multiple power outages, downed trees, and property damage.
