A Prigel Creamery ice cream sandwich stack.  Yum!
A Prigel Creamery ice cream sandwich stack. Yum!

This weekend my kids and I got to spend time with my Mom and Dad, siblings and their families in Maryland.  One of the highlights was a visit to Prigel’s Creamery for some ice cream.  If you’ll remember, we highlighted the farm in an article about successful dairying on pasture.  The flavor of the day was Bobby’s Black Mud – chocolate, coffee and chocolate chips – his own anthem to the wonders of mud season.  The line was out the door, but the weather was lovely and the ice cream was amazing, so nobody minded spending time in waiting for their scoop of happiness.  I’d have taken a picture to share with you, but we were enjoying our ice cream so much that I forgot.  Bobby took us to see his cows being milked, and I got to see his kids who are now all grown up.  I can’t believe how much can happen in just 10 years!

If you want to be happy too, and you happen to be in the area, here’s a link to the ice cream shop website.

If you’ve got great ice cream places to share, send them our way!  We’d love to have an On Pasture “Eat Ice Cream Here!” Map.

Thanks for reading!
