The popular Breakfast on the Farm program put on by the Pope and Swift County Farm Bureaus will return on Labor Day, offering attendees a chance to learn something about agriculture and getting a free steak and eggs breakfast. Jim Wulf is with the Pope County Farm Bureau and said that the program will run from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Pope County Fairgrounds in Glenwood, but it’s a good idea to get there early.
“Last year we planned on 650 people and we estimated we had about 1,300 here,” said Wulf. “So it was very well received and people had a lot of positive comments. So this year we set the number at 1,200. So we’re gonna say that we’re gonna serve until the food is gone.”
There will be livestock on display, sheep shearing demonstrations, and machinery implement dealers and demonstrations to learn about farm equipment. Wulf said the food will be served to-go while people are still in their cars as the program adds the COVID health and safety measures. Wulf said the number of meals given to people will be for the exact number of people in the vehicle. The price of the free breakfast, he said, was learning something about agriculture.
