Ham Breakfast big part of Indiana State Fair

For more than 50 years Indiana’s pork farmers have kicked off the State Fair with its Ham Breakfast.

Jeanette Merritt, director of checkoff programs says it’s an opportunity for the industry to get a little face time with the officials who set policy at the regional, state, and federal lever.

But it’s also a chance to highlight how producers are giving back to their local communities. 

“It’s important that we feed the world, but I’m not sure that the general public really cares that farmers feed the world, but they care that they feed their neighbors.
