Ice Cream Trail Stop #28 – Windy Knoll Farm Market and Creamery, Chambersburg, PA

July 18, 2020 After a good night’s sleep, we ate a little at the hotel and headed to Windy Knoll Farm Market and Creamery for second breakfast. This Mennonite market and creamery is large, clean, inviting, and has a wide variety of foods, especially for baking (bulk spices, pie fillings, etc.) Definitely a place toContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #28 – Windy Knoll Farm Market and Creamery, Chambersburg, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #27 – Urban Churn, Harrisburg, PA

July 17, 2020 As we sat, confused, at the Sugar Shack, eating our soft-serve, we looked up another creamery which I had read about. They churn their ice cream the old fashioned way, with ice and salt. The Urban Churn is in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s capital. We had an hour before it closed and it wasContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #27 – Urban Churn, Harrisburg, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop # 26 – Sugar Shack of Boiling Springs, Boiling Springs, PA

July 17, 2020 The Sugar Shack provided several surprises. First, it is connected to a gas station. No worries. Next, their flavor board said Hershey’s. Hum. They also have soft serve ice cream. I asked if their ice was homemade and they confirmed that Hershey’s makes it. I asked if they make their soft serveContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop # 26 – Sugar Shack of Boiling Springs, Boiling Springs, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #25 – Hall’s Homestyle Ice Cream, Millerstown, PA

July 17, 2020 Passing a long row of holsteins in the barn, we stopped at Hall’s not far away and across the street. They were serving from the outside window only and the barista implied that they had a smaller than usual variety of flavors available. Yet, we each found flavors that we loved. Wow!Continue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #25 – Hall’s Homestyle Ice Cream, Millerstown, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #24 – Sweet Treats and More, Elizabethtown, PA

July 17, 2020 My ears popped as we enjoyed beautiful rolling mountain views heading towards Elizabethtown, PA. I think we are in the Appalachian Mountains (no, we’re not stopping to walk the trail). We began this adventure in the Allegheny Mountains in Western PA, crossed the Appalachian, and went through Pocono Mountains in Eastern PA.Continue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #24 – Sweet Treats and More, Elizabethtown, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #23 – Way-Har Farm Market, Bernville, PA

July 17, 2020 Way Har Farm Market is in the middle of farm lands. We keep passing signs that I love saying, “Drink local whole milk. 97% Fat Free!” It is often spray painted on a wrapped round bales of hay. I’ve been trying to get a picture all day. When we pulled up toContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #23 – Way-Har Farm Market, Bernville, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #22 – Patches Family Creamery, Lebanon, PA

July 17, 2020 Patches Family Creamery is in a more rural setting, although it is surrounded by neighborhoods with huge homes. Clearly, former farmers have sold their land to developers. They have a nice little playground as well as a large area of small animals including goats, pigs, and chickens. Inside the store is aContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #22 – Patches Family Creamery, Lebanon, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #21 – Fox Meadows Creamery, Ephrata, PA

July 17, 2020 We’re back on the official creamery trail again, having eaten cupfuls of Turkey Hill ice cream. Next stop, half an hour away, was Fox Meadows Creamery. They have a large building with a wraparound porch. Indoors is a shop and you can buy lunch as well as ice cream. The ice creamContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #21 – Fox Meadows Creamery, Ephrata, PA”

Ice Cream Trail Stop #20 – The Turkey Hill Experience, Columbia, PA

July 17, 2020 Traveling along Route 30 yesterday, Gregg spotted The Turkey Hill Experience. Turkey Hill is a popular brand of ice cream in Pennsylvania. They also make iced teas.

Ice Cream Trail Stop #19 – The Milkhouse at Oregon Dairy, Lititz, PA

July 16, 2020 Oregon Dairy stayed open until 9:00 p.m. so we decided to head on over. They have a large compound including two large stores, we assume a grocery store and a farm resource store, the ice cream store with a large outside deck with seating, possibly a restaurant in “normal” times, a hugeContinue reading “Ice Cream Trail Stop #19 – The Milkhouse at Oregon Dairy, Lititz, PA”
