Stay Cool:New MD Ice Cream Trail!

July is ice cream month! In celebration, The Maryland Department of Agriculture decided to officially open Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail. It’s the first ice cream trail in the country to feature dairy farms that produce farm fresh ice cream and serve it directly to the consumer. Maryland has seven creameries in the state that do this, and if you visit all seven before September 7th, you could be named Maryland’s Best 2012 Ice Cream Trailblazer! Anyone interested in a being a Trailblazer can pick up a passport at any of the seven participating creameries – or download one online at: The winner will receive a $50 gift card to their favorite creamery!

The Trail recognizes the importance of Maryland’s dairy farms and encourages the public to visit a farm, ask questions, and get to know what dairy farming is all about!
