The Farmer’s Cow, a group of local dairy farmers providing fresh Connecticut milk and other products, is debuting its new ice cream flavor Red, White & Moo Summer Berry, just in time for the summer season. It features swirls of red raspberry puree and stripes of blueberry puree in a pure vanilla base to create a delectable “taste of summer” flavor that melts in your mouth.
Starting this month, The Farmer’s Cow will be sampling the new flavor at farmers’ markets and events around the state. Ice cream pints of Red, White & Moo Summer Berry will be available in grocery stores and markets. Tri-Town Foods in Portland, East Lyme and Uncasville were the first to introduce this delicious new flavor. It also will be available at our members Fort Hill Farm in Thompson and Fairvue Farm in Woodstock, and at The Farmer’s Cow Calfé & Creamery, which is scheduled to open in late July on Route 195 in Mansfield.
Fort Hill Farms will offer complimentary tastings of Red, White & Moo Summer Berry this Sunday, July 15th, at its Annual Ice Cream, Blueberry & Bluegrass Bash in celebration of National Ice Cream Day.
The Farmer’s Cow ice cream is made locally from fresh milk and rich cream with all natural ingredients. Real raspberries and blueberries are used to create the natural pureed fruit swirls. The Farmer’s Cow popular Hay! Hay! Hay! Vanilla base is the perfect complement in color and texture to the burst of berry flavor.
Every ice cream flavor from The Farmer’s Cow is artfully developed and carefully crafted until it is just right. “We got the idea for Red, White & Moo last summer,” says Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmer’s Cow. “It is a nice, light summer berry flavor with ribbons of raspberry and blueberry in our delicious vanilla ice cream. It’s as fun to look at as it is to lick, and it’s tasty too! It is a true celebration of the summer season.”
The clever name was suggested by several of our customers in an ice cream naming contest that was held when The Farmer’s Cow first introduced its ice cream. More than 3,000 entries were submitted by ice cream enthusiasts throughout Connecticut in an online contest.
