Goldview Farms, a sesquicentennial farm in Waverly, will host the 2023 Wright/Carver County Breakfast on the Farm program from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 10. The event will take place rain or shine and breakfast will be served until noon. Parking will be available at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School (8700 Co. Rd. 6 SW in Howard Lake) and free shuttles will bring participants to and from the farm.
The Breakfast on the Farm program will include a freewill donation breakfast of pancakes, sausage, coffee and milk; farm tours; a petting zoo; interactive farm machinery displays; and free samples from local producers. All proceeds will be donated to local food shelves.
The hosts – Faye, Pat and Joanna Bakeberg – have 120 grade Holstein cows and some registered Jersey and Brown Swiss milk cows. The family also raises young stock and steers for beef. There is 850 acres of cropland on the farm, growing alfalfa, corn, oats and soybeans.
The Bakebergs have a long and storied history in Wright County, as well as the Breakfast on the Farm program – this will be the ninth time the family has hosted the event. The Bakebergs received the Minnesota Farm Bureau Sesquicentennial Farm recognition this year in honor of the family’s five generations over the last 150 years that have operated the farm since Henry Bakeberg Sr. purchased the homestead in March of 1873.
Breakfast on the Farm is a non-profit group that believes in providing education to people that do not access to agriculture. For more information on the program, visit the Breakfast on the Farm Facebook page.
