Bird Flu Means No Eggs At Annual Farm Breakfast

Dane County Event Is Meant To Educate Visitors About Where Their Food Comes From


Dane County’s Breakfast on the Farm annually draws thousands of guests to a local farm to learn more about where their food comes from. But unlike past years, a recent bird flu outbreak in the state means eggs won’t be on the menu for this June’s event.

According to Kristin Olson with the Dane County Dairy Promotion Committee, supply and cost factored into the decision.

“We had to make some tough decisions and pull eggs from the menu, but like I said, compared to what some of the farmers are dealing with, this is really just a small issue in the grand scheme of things,” Olson said, adding: “We’ve been really proud to team up with local businesses in order to still be able to serve that high-quality farm-fresh breakfast that our guests have grown to know and love over the years.”
