PHOTO GALLERY: Breakfast on the Farm 2018

WRIGHT, CARVER COUNTIES, MN – Click here to see photos from the 10th annual Breakfast on the Farm, which took place June 16 at Poppler Dairy in Waverly.

In previous years, Breakfast on the Farm always took place in Wright County. Now, organizers plan to switch locations between Carver and Wright counties. The new name for the event is Wright Carver Breakfast on the Farm.

This was the first time the event was hosted by Harlan and Jennifer Poppler, along with their children – Brett, Halli, Dani, and Shayne. The Popplers operate the farm with Jennifer’s parents, Roy and Danita Marschall. They milk 300 Holsteins, employing milkers and other help throughout the year.

Select photos will be published in the Friday, June 22 edition of the Herald Journal.
