The brave souls who meandered through muddy fields to attend the annual Kenosha County Dairy Breakfast at Uhlenhake’s Land Locked Acres were not disappointed.

A steady downpour dampened the number of attendees, but not the spirit of those who enjoyed a fresh breakfast of scrambled eggs, pancakes, muffins, bread and butter, yogurt, milk and ice cream.

Fran Kunkel, her daughter Heidi Zavacke and granddaughter Araya, 13 months, come every year to see the people and explore the many changes in farming over the years.

       “I grew up on a farm,” said Kunkel. “It was a good beginning for me and taught me to learn to use what we had. I was one of 5 kids and we all worked together to get all the jobs done.”

        State Representative Samantha Kerkman served scrambled eggs to hungry and wet visitors to the farm. As a regular volunteer for the annual event, she was disappointed that there were less attendee this year.
     “I am hoping that the clouds will part and more people will decide to come out and have breakfast,” she said.

     “It was worth the hour drive to come here,” said Aaron, of Round Lake Beach, IL. “We are interested in the outdoors and farming, so it was good to get the kids out here to see what a farm is like up close.”
