Come Sunday, The Mark Bychinski Farm will be overrun by pancake lovers of all ages. The new shed in the background was the selling point for hosting the breakfast this year.

The 10th annual Spencer FFA Alumni Breakfast on the Farm will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Mark Bychinski Farm.

The farm is 2 miles north of Spencer and then east 1 mile on Century Road. Follow the signs, and you will be drawn in to some great-tasting pancakes and other breakfast favorites.

It started a year ago when Mark Bychinski was finishing his shed. Neighbor Bill Stuttgen said, "That would be a great place to have Breakfast on the Farm." Bychinski and his parents graciously volunteered to host this year's breakfast.

Val and Donna Bychinski moved onto this farm 49 years ago. When he reached the age of 65, Val Bychinski decided it was time to retire. So, he sold his cows.

Son Mark had been working on the farm since graduating from high school. He had 25 cows of his own. Mark and his dad worked out a deal where he could rent the farm and see how it went. Eight years ago, Mark purchased the farm from his parents. Donna and Val still help out. They currently have 47 cows to take care of and almost that many heifers.

The Bychinski family is only the second family to call B921 Century Road home. For 85 years, the Frank (pronounced Fronk back then) family lived on the farm.

The Bychinskis raised five children. Matt, Becky, Mark and twins Sarah and Anna all grew up on the farm.

The Bychinski family has been planning this event for the past year. Come on out and see their farm. Of course, you will be treated to a wonderful breakfast. A petting zoo for the kids, and maybe adults, will be available. Door prizes are up for grabs. You will be welcomed by numerous cats and their dog Bluee. Don't worry about Bluee, he is 13 years old and just loves people.

The menu consists of pancakes, sausage, eggs, applesauce, ice cream, milk and coffee. Cost for adults is $6. Children younger than12 can eat for a mere $3. Pre-school children eat free. I hope to see you at the 10th annual Breakfast on the Farm.
