Creameries Encouraged to Join 2022 PA Ice Cream Trail

The Center for Dairy Excellence, PA Preferred®, and the Pennsylvania Tourism Office are seeking creameries to participate in the 2022 Pennsylvania “Scooped” Ice Cream Trail program. Pennsylvania dairy farms that have a value-added ice cream component to their business are encouraged to join the program. The PA Ice Cream Trail was designed to increase consumer awareness of locally produced dairy products and drive state-wide traffic to PA Preferred® creameries.


The 2022 program tentatively is scheduled to kick off in June and will conclude in September. Plans are to return to a passport program with incentives that are ideal for consumers of all ages. Additional details will be forthcoming.


Participating creameries are required to have a connection to Pennsylvania dairy and must be part of the PA Preferred® program. The ice cream must be produced on site, using milk and/or ice cream mix made from milk produced in Pennsylvania. If selected for the 2022 program, creameries will receive a toolkit with resources to help with promoting the initiative at their storefront and on digital platforms.


To participate in the 2022 Ice Cream Trail or learn more about the program, contact Emily Barge by March 16. Email or call 717-346-0849.
