The University of Maryland Extension is excited to offer the 2019 Breakfast on the Farm event on Saturday, June 22, 2019, in Middletown, MD.  Valley-Ho Farm, the Burrier and Derr Families will be hosting our 2019 festivities. The farm is located at 7800 Picnic Woods Road, Middletown, MD 21769.

The goal of Breakfast on the Farm is to connect local consumers to farmers, giving families an up-close and personal look at how their food is grown and raised,

Attendees will be able to learn about topics such as proper animal care, crop production, milk production and operation of farm equipment. Visitors will also be able to participate in various hands-on activities, see a milking demonstration, and eat ice cream. Breakfast on the Farm is a fun way to get kids interested in their food and establish the importance of farms in modern agriculture.

Currently we are looking for over 100 volunteers to help with the event from        7 a.m. - 3 p.m. Volunteers may be youth or adults. 

Individuals interested in volunteering may sign up online at
