MARYLAND — Summer is heating up and there's no better way to cool off than with a scoop of ice cream or two. Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail is back!
The trail is designed to promote the state's dairy industry.
“While our state continues to carefully reopen, I am excited to see the return of Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail,” said Governor Larry Hogan.
“Dairy farmers are an integral part of our state’s agricultural industry. This promotion is a great way to support hard working family farms while continuing to follow guidance on social distancing and face coverings.”
It might look a little different this year because of the pandemic. To minimize contact you won't get a physical passport to mark your journey. Instead you are asked to take a photo or a selfie at each of the 10 creameries. When you've completed the trail submit those photos along with your contact information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are also encouraged to share your progress on social media using #MDIceCreamTrail.
All completed email submissions will receive a “2020 Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trailblazer” certificate. One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the creamery of their choice and DVD copies of the MPT original series, “Maryland Farm & Harvest.”
The 2020 Ice Cream Trail on-farm creameries include: Prigel Family Creamery (Baltimore), Nice Farms Creamery (Caroline), Kilby Cream (Cecil), South Mountain Creamery (Frederick), Rocky Point Creamery (Frederick), Broom’s Bloom Dairy (Harford), Keyes Creamery (Harford), Woodbourne Creamery at Rock Hill Orchard (Montgomery), Misty Meadow Farm Creamery (Washington), and Chesapeake Bay Farms (Worcester).
