Wisconsin is known for its dairy cows, its cheese, its potatoes and much more related to agriculture.
On Sunday, more than 2,500 people got to see up close and personal the animals and the land that provide the food that many folks take for granted.
Shawano County’s 32nd annual Brunch on the Farm at the Beran Dairy in Birnamwood featured several delicacies representative of Wisconsin farm products, including cheese curds and cottage cheese from milking cows and hash browns from Wisconsin potatoes.
For many visitors, it was their first time seeing a farm in operation. For others, it was continuing an annual tradition.
Pat Hesseltvandinter, of Shawano, has gone to seven brunches.
“I like participating and honoring the farmers, taking in all that nice food and those products they make for us,” Hesseltvandinter said. “I also enjoy going someplace and wondering who you’re going to know. I’ve done that already a couple of times.”
