The Watertown Agri-Business Club recently announced the host family for their annual breakfast on the farm, Zwieg’s Maple Acres. The farm is owned and operated by Kyle and Rachel Zwieg of Ixonia.
“We are excited to have the Zwieg family hosting this year’s breakfast, they are passionate young farmers and have a beautiful farmstead,” said Brad Brusveen, President of the Watertown Agri-Business Club.
Zwieg’s Maple Acres is a seventh-generation dairy and crop farm focused on sustainability and the integration of technology. In 2020, they switched to robotic milking and have since established Delaval’s highest producing robotic herd in North America. Last year, they were recognized as Wisconsin’s Outstanding Young Farmer and just recently selected as 2023 national winners. In addition, the farm has practiced no-till since 2009 and has partnered with a local conservancy to ensure their business will be around for generations to come.
The Watertown Agri-Business Club’s breakfast on the farm will be held on Father’s Day weekend, June 17th & 18th from 7 AM to 12:30 PM. Adult tickets are $10 in advance and $11 at the door, children 6-10 years old are $5 in advance and $6 at the door, five and under eat free. Tickets will also be available at many local businesses.
Guests will enjoy a hearty breakfast including scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, cheese, milk, orange juice, coffee, and ice cream. There will be wagon rides, live music featuring the Gary Beal Band, kid’s play area, Ziemer trains, and Klettke toy farm display.
Make sure to bring the whole family to Zwieg’s Maple Acres located at N947 Plover Road, Ixonia. Free shuttles will run from Watertown High School and Meadow View Elementary School in Oconomowoc, and parking will be available onsite, weather permitting.
