Event Description

Celebrating Ontario food and farming with Breakfast on the Farm Come for some great food and the chance to have all your farm questions answered by Ontario’s farmers.
 
(Tecumseh) On September 20, 2015, Breakfast on the Farm will be hosted at Hylander Farms in Tecumseh. It will be the third Breakfast on the Farm since 2013, and so far, over 6000 people have been fed, entertained and engaged at the event.
 
Breakfast on the Farm provides a unique opportunity for farmers and nonfarming Ontarians to have a conversation about food and farming. It gives Ontarians the chance to visit a real, working farm, provides a showcase for agriculture and gives non-farmers the opportunity to have their questions answered by real farmers. After being treated to an all-Ontario breakfast featuring eggs, pancakes, sausage and more, visitors will be able to see beef cattle and farm machinery, and will have the opportunity to have their questions answered by helpful farm experts. Interactive stops around the farm will include many displays, activities and exhibits that showcase other types of farms in Ontario. Hylander Farms is a veal, beef and grain farm owned and operated by Brian Hyland, his wife Rina, son Matthew, and parents Walter and Muriel. Their beef cattle are raised for local buyers of all kinds. The event will run from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm, with breakfast being served until 11:30 a.m. The farm tours wrap up by 1:00 p.m. It is a free event, though preregistration is required; the first 2,000 visitors are guaranteed breakfast.
