The Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion is a non-profit organization of agriculture professionals and dedicated dairy farm families in Kewaunee County that partner with the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board to positively promote the dairy industry and products.
Each year our event "Breakfast on the Farm" is hosted by a different Kewaunee Family Farm. This allows the host farm the opportunity to tell their individual story and brings an element of discovery and new experiences to those that attend the event.
We have three Dairy Ambassadors who work to educate non-farmers and school children about where their food comes from by visiting our county schools. They primarily teach Kindergarten thru 4th graders how Wisconsin dairy farmers produce the quality dairy products they eat. We treat them with an ice cream or cheese sample along with fun educational materials. We also support local farmers who allow farm tours for school children to see where milk comes from, by providing milk, cheese, and ice cream treats for the kids.
Look for Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion at the familiar "Little Red Barn" seen at the Kewaunee County Fair as well as numerous other festivals, parades, events, and grocery promotions held each year.
