Breakfast on the Farm

What is Breakfast On The Farm?

Breakfast On The Farm creates a unique opportunity for farmers, tourists, and non-farming islanders to have a conversation about food and farming. It truly provides a showcase for agriculture and gives non-farming islanders the opportunity to meet real farmers and members of the agri-food industry. Guests attending this event will be treated to a free locally sourced breakfast and will have the opportunity to tour a modern PEI family farm, participate in activities, become educated on where our food comes from, and more. Guest will also have the chance to have their questions answered by the people that help produce the food that we eat. We would love to have you out to support this event and the PEI food industry!

Our Second Annual Breakfast On The Farm

Farm and Food Care PEI’s second annual Breakfast on the Farm was hosted at Vanco Farms Ltd in Mt Albion on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019; and it was a huge success. One thousand people took advantage of this excellent opportunity to visit a unique potato and tulip farm, enjoy an all-PEI sourced breakfast, learn what it takes to get creamer potatoes from the field to food plate, the process of growing tulip bulbs, farm tours, agricultural displays, children’s activities and much more. Farm & Food Care PEI is very appreciative of everyone who supported this event, and are excited to see what next year’s annual Breakfast on the Farm will consist of.

Farm & Food Care PEI would like to thank everyone who helped make this important event happen. We are profoundly appreciative of the VanNieuwenhuyzen family and their staff for their excellent hospitality and graciously opening up their beautiful farm to us and the public to host this event. To all our partners, we are grateful for their support and contributions to Breakfast on the Farm, especially to the local businesses who donated all the tasty island sourced food. We would also like to acknowledge Ilona Daniel and her team for all their hard work while preparing and cooking all the delicious food for all attendees. We are genuinely thankful for all the incredible volunteers who came out to help make Breakfast on the Farm run smoothly, plus set up and take down for this event. Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who came out to support this event, and help us promote it. Without you all this event could not have happened, we truly appreciate all of your support.
Breakfast on the Farm was a free public event that brought together consumers and producers, with an overall greater goal of increasing the public’s trust in our food and agricultural industry, here on Prince Edward Island. Guests who attended this event were treated to a free locally sourced breakfast and also had the opportunity to tour a PEI family farm, participate in a variety of activities, become educated on where our food comes from, and more. Coffee was offered to attendees in exchange for a donation to PEI 4H where $145.85 was donated to the PEI 4H Trust.
