I updated my Maryland Ice Cream Trail page. I added a plan to cover all nine creameries in three weekend trips and a map for planning. Let me know if you have any questions.

What’s the Maryland Ice Cream Trail? Maryland has nine dairy farms that offer fresh ice cream. Together, they make up the Maryland Ice Cream Trail. Visit each creamery and get your trail passport stamped. The program runs during the Summer and ends in September.

We visited all eight of the creameries on the 2015 trail. We limited our visits to two locations for 2016, Kilby Cream (our favorite) and Woodbourne Creamery (new to the trail for 2016). We will re-visit all the creameries for 2017. Fun times on an ice cream road trip!

Md. ‘Ice Cream Trail’ Leads Those With Sweet Tooth Across The State

This post had a good video of a visit to Prigel Family Creamery. One of 9 creameries on the 2016 Maryland Ice Cream Trail. From the post …

“GLEN ARM, Md. (WJZ) — Warmer weather means many people are out looking for some cool ice cream. But this year, how about making that trip an adventure?

Marcus Washington explains how a trip for ice cream could lead you on a trail across the state.

For the past five years, the Department of Agriculture has held the ‘Ice Cream Trail,’ leading Marylanders to all the local farm creameries in the state.”

This location has a very friendly staff. There are no seats inside but several benches and chairs around the outside of the store. I’m looking forward to trying the local honey and canned vanilla peaches I purchased. I liked the place some much I’m going to take another day trip to visit their second location in Berlin, MD.

This place has great ice cream and a very friendly staff. It’s more of a restaurant than a creamery. The cream of crab soup and sun dried tomato quiche were both fantastic! There was a line going out the door of people waiting to order. It’s worth a day trip!
