Farm bureau to offer 50 cent breakfast


DIXON — The Lee County Farm Bureau will be hosting their annual Farmer’s Share Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Loveland Community House in Dixon. The breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and costs only 50 cents per plate.

The Public Relations Committee will prepare a breakfast and for only 50 cents per plate, or the actual “farm” value of the breakfast.  The menu will include pancakes, sausage, orange juice, milk, and coffee.

The purpose of this breakfast is to help demonstrate the amount of income the average farmer would receive from a meal like the one being prepared. On average, between breakfasts prepared at home and in a restaurant, the farmer receives 50 cents.

The Lee County Farm Bureau’s mission is to be a positive voice for agriculture through leadership and education to improve the quality of life and economic well-being of our members and community.
