Wegmueller Farm – host of GCDC 2023 Fall BreakfastGCDC Breakfast September 21 at Wegmueller Farm

MONROE – The influence of agriculture is apparent in the landscape, education, and economy of Green County. Preserving agricultural roots is important for the viability of future generations living and working here.

To create awareness and conversation, Green County Development Corporation (GCDC) has partnered with Dan and Ashley Wegmueller to hold a fall leader breakfast at the Wegmueller Dairy Farm, W4358 Montgomery Road, Monroe. Farm owner Dan Wegmueller, Wegmueller Farm Dairy Herd Manager Kalee Schaefer, and Blackhawk Technical College agriculture instructor Dusty Williams will provide perspectives on the future of agriculture in Wisconsin.

The breakfast coincides with the start of Wisconsin Agricultural Tourism Week and creates a perfect setting for the future of agriculture conversation, as the Wegmuellers created a “farm stay” experience with their family farm to keep it viable. Dan has said, “Opening our doors has done 2 things. It’s brought in a revenue stream that we desperately need to keep the farm going. But it’s also made farming fun again.”

The event will be held Thursday, September 21st from 7:30-9:00AM at Wegmueller Farm, W4358 Montgomery Road, Monroe. A locally sourced, warm breakfast buffet, sponsored by Woodford State Bank, will be provided by Kimmee’s Kitchen of Monroe. After the event optional farm tours will be provided.

This limited seating event requires registration to attend. Register before September 7th at  https://GCDCFallBreakfast0921.eventbrite.com.  Contact GCDC at 608-328-9452, or gcdc@greencountydevelopment.com for questions.

GCDC is a non-profit organization that serves as a bridge between public and private partnerships investing in the economic future of Green County.
