D&D Sunny Side Beef and the Ripon FFA Alumni Country Breakfast have one trait in common.

   They both have grown a lot since they last joined forces.

   “2000 is when we last hosted the breakfast,” said Diana Sina, who along with husband Dave Sina make up the “D&D” in D&D Sunny Side Beef. “We only had one portion of our shed at that point, so from a progression perspective you can physically see it. But the breakfast has gotten bigger from an attendance perspective, so [we’re] hoping for a good attendance, even though I think there’s less farmers now than there were 19 years ago. So it’s great to know we’re still here.”

   The Sinas and the Ripon FFA Alumni will team up once again Sunday, June 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to host the 32nd-annual country breakfast.

   Organized by the Ripon FFA Alumni, the all-you-can-eat meal will feature scrambled omelets, sausage, cheese, fruit, juice, milk, coffee and ice cream.

   It will take place at the Sinas’ D&D Sunny Side Beef farm, located at 7435 Sportsman Road between Ripon and Pickett.

   Tickets are $7 in advance or $8 the day of the breakfast.
