Granton dairy breakfast returns to the farm
For the Sentinel
CLARK COUNTY – The Granton FFA Alumni is taking their dairy breakfast back to the farm on June 5, as Jim and Caroline Walter and family will be hosting the event at JC Walter Farm.
Jim and Caroline, and their two daughters, Hannah and Megan, were originally scheduled to host the breakfast in 2020, but the event was cancelled. Hannah graduated that year so they thought it would be a great idea to clean up the shed for the party and breakfast the same year. Well, it is Megan’s year to graduate now, so they volunteered to host the breakfast under the same premise.
The Walter’s story highlights a marriage of 22 years this upcoming September. As a “city girl from Marshfield,” Caroline joked that she definitely “married for love” because she had no idea what it would be like to be a farm wife and her only farm experience prior to meeting Jim, was the round barn at the Central Wisconsin Fair.
Jim and Caroline met in 1998 and they spent many dates in the tractor in order to spend time together and Jim said “Caroline just kind of jumped in and helped with chores as needed, so we could get done in time to go out for dinner”.
This was the beginning of raising of a family on the farm, making many memories, some very happy and some very challenging.
