Sprinkles, hot fudge and cherries! Oh My! Celebrate National Ice-cream Day at Coverdale Farm! We’ll be serving up the classics and whipping up three farm-tastic flavors! Sweet corn ice-cream? You bet! Collect ingredients fresh from the farm to use in our recipes and as toppings! While our ice-cream is churning, we’ll tour the farm and learn about the cows that provide us with the cream for our frozen treats. Once ready, choose your favorite flavors and garnishes from the toppings bar to create your ultimate sundae! Enjoy it picnic style at the farm. Don’t forget the cherry on top! Led by Ashley Harrell
