Yesterday was a fun family filled morning on the Dairy Farm at Voight Acres in Shiocton, WI. Not only did we do something in light of June being Dairy Month, but we crossed one adventure off of our summer bucket list. We were lucky that the weather cooperated and it was a beautiful morning, although quite sticky-hot. There is nothing more enjoyable then spending quality time with my family and this certainly was a great little activity. I’m so glad we had this on our bucket list and I encourage you all to go to a Breakfast on the Farm this summer if anywhere in your area offers them. I know there are still a few more being held in WI this month:

Here are a few pictures from the time we enjoyed this weekend as a family:
The Voight Acres
All tuckered out before we even sat down to eat breakfast!
Enjoying a hearty breakfast complete with Chocolate milk, scrambled eggs, ham, WI squeaky cheese curds and cheese cubes, hash browns and a cinnamon roll. Our bellies were happy!
A farmer feeding his rooster! These cute little picture board props were all over and so cute for making family memories!
Cows, cows & more cows! E’s favorite were the “chocolate milk” cows as she liked to call the brown and white cows and of course the baby calf’s.
A fun fact we learned: 10 gallons of cow’s milk makes 1 lb of cheese!
This was the little petting zoo area!
These are just among a few pictures I took while our visit to the farm. Not pictured was the bounce houses, face painting, and ice cream offered. There were also many opportunities for learning, farm tours, tractor rides, hands on exploring of the farm equipment, big sand play area, milk station tour, churning your own butter…I mean the fun was endless! Big or little there was something to enjoy for all ages! It was a quality filled morning and I am anxious to see what else we are able to cross off of our bucket list for summer!
