Breakfast at the Barn featuring Kim Bremmer

Manitowoc, WI (January 29, 2019): The Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center will be hosting the second Breakfast at the Barn on January 29, 2019. Doors will open at 7:25am with the breakfast buffet starting at 7:30am with a presentation from Kim Bremmer beginning at 8:00am.

Breakfast at the Barn is an agriculture educational event that will be held six times a year.  At each breakfast, Farm Wisconsin will feature a different dynamic presenter that will focus on a variety of topics in the agriculture industry.

Kim Bremmer, Ag Inspirations, will be presenting, “The Talk vs. The Truth About Agriculture”. It’s not bad to question where your food comes from, but how do we base our choices on facts and not fear? With contradicting information about agriculture surrounding us daily, what are we, as consumers, supposed to do? Join Kim for an engaging discussion about sustainability in agriculture and balancing science and emotion from the farm gate to our plates.

Kim is a nationally recognized speaker who started Ag Inspirations with a mission to inspire farmers to tell their stories, connect people to where their food comes from, and represent the great success of American agriculture today. She is passionate about teaching the story of sustainable agriculture and the role of science, technology and innovation in how we grow and raise food. Kim grew up on a dairy farm in north central Wisconsin. Kim is an academy member of the National Speaker’s Association, the Wisconsin state coordinator for Common Ground, a regular contributor on Rural Route radio, and is the president of Wisconsin Women for Agriculture. Kim specializes in communication and connecting with everyday consumers and is a vocal champion of agriculture everywhere she goes…from the grocery store to the airport.
