National Ice Cream Day!

Did you know that in 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day?

To mark this most auspicious occasion The Woodside Farm Creamery in Hockessin, Delaware, will host it's own annual celebration from 1 to 5 this Sunday. This free event includes tours of the creamery, new ice cream flavor tastings and an ice cream eating competition. The highlight of the event will be the opportunity to meet one of the creamery's very own Jersey cows! Mooooooooooo!

This family owned farm was purchased in 1786 and is recognized by the State of Delaware as one of few remaining Centennial Farms in the First State."Today the farm uses the natural resources available (sun, rain, and fertile soil) to produce alfalfa, clover, orchard grass and rye grass. These create lush, green pastures where our Jersey cows can graze and live in a clean and low stress setting. This is not only healthier for our cows, but for the environment as well." This environment ensures high quality milk, rich in cream, which they use in making their fabulous homemade ice cream! Woodside Farm Creamery opened in May of 1998. and serves fresh premium ice cream made on the farm using their own milk from their own Jersey cows.
