The Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion Committee is making sure the hard work of farmers gets into the hands of local community members. For students in the lunch programs at Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco, and Algoma School Districts, the committee is donating 3000 tubes of yogurt and sticks of string cheese to be distributed in addition to coupons for free milk and butter. Those shopping at Kewaunee County grocery stores will also receive savings on dairy products during the next two months. Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion Committee President JJ Pagel says even as farmers struggle with low milk prices, the organization knows some families have it much worse.
The Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion Committee announced on Friday it has canceled its signature Father’s Day event, Breakfast on the Farm. The host farm, Salentine Homestead Dairy, will have the honors of welcoming thousands to their operation in 2022. Augustian Farms will host the annual event in 2021.
