The Knorn Family is ready for its close-up again as it prepares to host the Kewaunee County Breakfast on the Farm next Sunday in Casco. Junion Homestead Farm last hosted the annual event in 1998 and has since seen its herd grow from around 30 cows to over 200. Their unique compost bedded barns have drawn farmers from across the country and around the world to the farm as they learn how the technique provides more comfort for the cow and an alternative for manure management. Amanda Dolphin works on the farm with the rest of her family and says she is excited to show off the operation to the community.
Over 4,500 people are expected to attend this year’s Kewaunee County Breakfast on the Farm, which will take place on Father’s Day beginning at 7 a.m. with a non-denominational mass before food service begins at 8 a.m.
