The Jelinek family welcomes you to the 2015 Crawford County Dairy Breakfast “On the Farm,” Saturday, June 13, at 55374 County Rd. E, Eastman, just south of Seneca, at the intersection of State Highway 27 and County Road E. This marks the 34th year of the Crawford County Dairy Breakfast.

The Jelinek farm was founded by Dennis and Cindy Jelinek (Chad and Grant’s parents) in 1980 and consisted of 231 acres and a 50-cow milking herd in a stanchion barn.

Jelinek Farms LLC is currently owned and operated by Chad, Amy and Grant Jelinek, who purchased the farm in 2011. Chad and Amy have three children, Laine, 9, Zoey, 8 and Ali, 5. Grant Jelinek and Sarah Benoy have a daughter Kinsley, 3.

In 2010 the brothers decided to expand the operation and built a 200 cow free-stall barn. They currently milk 250 cows twice a day in a double 10 parlor, housed in the original stanchion barn. The Jelineks rent a total of 825 acres of tillable land and raise corn, hay and oats to feed their thriving herd.

No stranger to providing educational opportunities to the public, Jelinek Farms previously hosted the Crawford County Dairy Breakfast in 1988, 2003 and 2012.

This year’s dairy breakfast will follow tradition from the last 33 years and start at 6 a.m. and end at 10 a.m. Attendees are encourage to take the free bus shuttle to the event as parking is limited. The first bus will leave Blackhawk Junction in Prairie du Chien beginning at 5:45 a.m. and then every 15 minutes, with the last north bound bus heading to the farm at 9 a.m. The final bus returning to Prairie du Chien from the Jelinek farm will be at 10:30 a.m.

This year’s breakfast menu is a repeat of last year’s award-winning menu of pancakes, sausage links, apple sauce, pudding, milk, coffee, cottage cheese, cheese curds and Culver’s custard and chocolate shakes.
As in previous years, event goers are invited to tour the barns, watch the cows get milked, listen for names to be announced for a door prize, meet dairy royalty and enjoy the other farm related activities. The most important part of the day is to hang out with family and friend in this beautiful part of the Driftless Region and enjoy another fine country tradition, the Crawford County Dairy Breakfast.
