Summer Fun on Maryland’s Ice-Cream Trail

Opportunity to Win Free Ice-Cream

I’ve been on beer, wine, whiskey, bourbon and quilt trails, but I have never seen an ice cream trail. Now, Maryland has a trail everyone can enjoy. Maryland has eight dairy farms that offer fresh, delicious on-farm ice cream (from Washington County in Western Maryland to Worcester County on the Eastern Shore). Together, they make up the Maryland Ice Cream Trail.

First, download your passport and start eating ice cream. (I know it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. 🙂 )

Visit each of the 8 farms on the trail, answer a question and get a passport stamp at each stop. Once you have completed your passport, mail it in to the address on the passport. All completed passports will be submitted into a drawing.

If they pull yours out, you will win a $50 gift certificate to the creamery of your choice. In addition, you will receive DVDs of the first season of Maryland Farm and Harvest, a new Maryland Public Television series that highlights agriculture in Maryland, and a copy of the acclaimed cookbook Dishing Up Maryland by Lucie Snodgrass.

And incredible bragging rights!

There is no purchase necessary. Visit each creamery from now until September 15th and you may be named Maryland’s 2014 Ice Cream Trail Blazer.
