Worcester County Dairy Farm Among Maryland's Best Ice Cream Producers

Posted:
POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- How far would you travel for some of the best ice cream around? The good news is, you don't have to go very far at all! For the third year in a row, a family dairy farm in Worcester County is part of Maryland's Ice Cream Trail. It is the trail's only stop here on the Eastern Shore.

It was a lazy Thursday afternoon for the dairy cows at Chesapeake Bay Farms in Pocomoke City. When WBOC visited the farm, they had already done their job for the day.

“We produce about 10,000 pounds of milk a day,” explained Laura Holland.

Milk that is transformed into one of dozens of flavors of sweet, creamy ice cream.

“Cow to cone, we make the milk here,” noted Danny Holland. “It goes right to the plant and we make the ice cream fresh.”

That is what separates their ice cream from the rest.

“We're the only cow to cone facility on the Eastern Shore, that actually takes our milk and makes it into ice cream on site,” he said.

And news is traveling fast.

“It's the kind of promotion that helps us with tourists that are from the Western Shore or other parts of Maryland,” Danny Holland noted.

Once again, Chesapeake Bay Farms is one of eight stops on the Maryland Ice Cream Trail -- a push by the state Department of Agriculture to link local farmers with consumers.

“Local is very big right now,” remarked Danny Holland. “People looking to know where their food sources are.”

He says there is no better time of year to promote the sweet frozen treat.

“It is summer,” he laughed. “Ice cream's great. Something you can take the family out, get an ice cream. It doesn't cost you a fortune. Get away from the routine, go out and have a good time and eat ice cream."

Chesapeake Bay Farms also has a second location, off of Route 50 in Berlin.

If you'd like to print a Maryland Ice Cream Trail passport and visit the eight dairy farms on the trail, you can find it here: http://marylandsbest.net/wp-content/uploads/IceCreamTrailBrochure.pdf    

You will receive a stamp at each farm between now and September 15th. The "2014 Ice Cream Trailblazer" will be chosen from a drawing of completed passports, and win a $50 gift certificate to their creamery of choice.
