Farmer’s breakfast highlights county ag

The importance of farming in Scott County will be stressed when a farmer’s breakfast is offered on Sept. 13.

The meal is in conjunction with an Autumn Fare that Saturday at the Scott County Fairgrounds.

The breakfast itself is from 8 to 11 a.m. It is billed as a locally sourced gourmet breakfast including burritos, baked oatmeal, yogurt parfait, kolaches, fruit and coffee.

The breakfast is sponsored by Local Harvest Alliance, which promotes the importance of food production in the county.

It’s “an opportunity for area residents to sample the tasty and healthy foods that are produced or sourced here,” said Ann Houghton, a member of the alliance and a commercial producer of onions and garlic.

The Scott County Agricultural Society created Autumn Fare to help promote locally produced food, natural fiber and art.

The goal is a venue for producers of local food and natural fiber, plus artists, to show their work.

Tickets for the farmer’s breakfast are $10 in advance, $13 at the door for adults, and $7 in advance and at the door for children ages 3 to 11.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at, or in person as Wozupi Farmers Market, Prior Lake; Cedar Summit Farm Store, New Prague, and Scott County Farm Extension, Jordan.
