This Little Delaware Family Creamery Is A Sweet Country Dream

Delaware is known for being a big producer of ice cream. While we aren’t home to the Ice Cream Capital of the World (thanks, Iowa), we’re sure home to some mighty fine dairies and creameries. One of the oldest in the state, Vanderwende Creamery, is still making some of the best ice cream in Delaware since they opened up their farm 65 years ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
