IT’S BACK! Mark your calendars and plan on attending the 10th Annual “Farmer’s Share Breakfast.”
The breakfast is being sponsored by the Edwards County Farm Bureau and the Edwards County FFA. It will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 6:30am until 9:30am at the Senior Center in Albion (Note the change in location from previous years). The breakfast will feature pancakes, eggs, sausage and drinks. The cost of the breakfast will be $0.15 per person.
“14.6¢ is the amount farmers and ranchers receive for every food dollar consumers spend,” stated Rebecca Perry, manager of the Edwards County Farm Bureau.
“The purpose of this breakfast is to show consumers how much the farmer actually receives out of every dollar they spend on food,” stated Perry.
The amount of money a farmer receives from the food dollar has gone down five cents from 2016.
The breakfast is open to the public! Mark your calendars and bring your family and friends out for a great (and cheap) breakfast! Carry-outs will be available.
