MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) - The pandemic left Marshfield’s Dairy Breakfast in a sticky situation last year, but this year, the line stacked up faster than the maple syrup could come out.

“Two-thousand people,” Dairy Breakfast Chairperson Josh Sabo said.”

That’s how many mouths the breakfast plans to feed. Within the first hour of opening, they already fed 400.

“You just can’t buy it uptown at the local grocery store-- all of our supplies, so when the stuff does run out, we run out,” Sabo said.

The breakfast was held at Weigel Family Farm. Farm owners, Don and Roxann said they were happy to see people coming together after the pandemic.

“It’s nice people want to get out and do something again,” Don said. “We were planning on doing this last year because it would have been the 50th anniversary of our barn burning down. It’s great to get back to a little more normalcy.”

Hundreds of people came out Sunday to celebrate in some way, whether it was for June Dairy Month or Father’s Day. The proceeds made towards the breakfast help support grants and scholarships for students part of the FFA. It was also a way for people to show support for Wisconsin farmers and raise money for future farmers.

“It takes a lot of people to put this on and we have a lot of great helpers,” Sabo said.

People were also able to enjoy a petting zoo, door prizes and a silent auction.
