The dairy industry in Delaware contributes over 70 million dollars to the state’s economy, with approximately 50 farms and about 5000 dairy cows. All of that milk is farm-fresh, and some of it is processed on local dairy farms and made into ice cream on site!
Over the past 10 or so years, the number of farm creameries has jumped, and with a state that’s only 96 miles long, that means homemade, farm-fresh ice cream a stone’s throw away from any point. Here’s a tasty tidbit about each as we look to warmer weather.
Please note, Hopkins Farm Creamery, The Blue Scoop, and Fifer Orchards are temporarily closed. Additionally, Somerset Farm Ice Cream is closed until May 2021.
