Tuesday Tip #2

Another "local's tip"....Have you visited Milky Way Farm yet this summer? If not, you have to get over there for some homemade & moolicious ice cream. (The farm is located in Chester Springs just off route 113). Then when you're done, let the kids run off their sugar high visiting the farm animals. They have ducks, chickens, sheep, pigs, and of course, dairy cows.

Milky Way Farm is a family owned and operated dairy farm offering services and products with "down on the farm" flair. Their services and products include birthday parties, private tours, school group field trips, and pick your own pumpkins during the October pumpkin season.

And my biggest tip....not only can you get ice cream & see the farm animals, but they now offer a veges/fruit crop share program which is awesome!  This is my 2nd year in the CSA and I love the assortment of produce I get each week, along with knowing I am helping out local farmers.  I do split with a friend because you receive so much & to help make it even more affordable for my family.  For those that do not want to do CSA, you can also score some fresh affordable vegetables sold on the porch of the creamery, as well as purchase milk, eggs, and meat in their refrigerated shed. 

Or if you cannot make it over to the farm, head into West Chester to the new Farm House Market (they're selling on the street in front of the shop until they "officially" open).  The shop is located on 15 North Church Street, West Chester, PA 19380 and you can call for more info. : 610.430.FARM (3276)
