Local Ice Cream is the Coolest

Bowls of ice cream

Is there anything better on a hot summer day than a cold scoop (or two) of ice cream? We're pretty certain there's not. Unless, that is, the ice cream is local and made with the best ingredients from Kentucky farms. Many neighborhood grocery stores also carry local milk from Kentucky farms. If you're making homemade ice cream, be on the lookout for milk from Chaney's Dairy, Legacy Dairy, Prairie Farms, and JD Country Milk. Did you know that Kroger Milk in the Louisville Region is produced at Winchester Farms in Winchester, KY?
