Governor Hogan, Secretary Bartenfelder Kick Off 2019 Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail
Governor Larry Hogan and Maryland Agriculture Secretary Joe Bartenfelder kicked off the 2019 season of the Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail on May 25 at Chesapeake Bay Farms in Berlin, Md. The 2019 Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail will run through Sept. 23 and is made up of nine Maryland dairies that produce and sell their ice cream directly to consumers. The trail stretches more than 290 miles from Washington County in the west to Worcester County in the east.
“Maryland is home to outstanding dairy operations that provide high-quality, local dairy products to millions of people throughout the region,” said Governor Hogan. “The Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail is a great opportunity for our citizens to learn more about dairy farming. By visiting one of the nine dairies on the Ice Cream Trail, you are helping support Maryland dairy farmers, local producers, and rural communities.” Now in its seventh year, the trail has become increasingly popular drawing visitors from around the world.
