Lebanon, CT (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
The Farmer’s Cow is a group of six Connecticut dairy farms working together to sell their fresh dairy products. All of the member farms are dedicated to promoting the values provided by local agriculture. As the end of winter approaches on the farms, spring thaws bring on ‘Mud Season’ followed by spring planting in the fields. This is the perfect time to introduce The Farmer’s Cow newest ice cream flavors that are now available in retail stores: Muddy Boots Knee-Deep in Chocolate and Farmland Crunch.
Both new ice cream flavors are locally made from The Farmer’s Cow fresh milk and rich cream blended with delicious ingredients. Farmland Crunch goes a step further to support farmland preservation with a portion of the sale of each pint directly benefiting the Connecticut Farmland Trust.
Muddy Boots Knee-Deep in Chocolate is pure decadence. It features The Farmer’s Cow “Cow Barn Chocolate” ice cream made even muddier with brownie bits and chocolate chips swirled in a fudge ribbon that is scrumptious to wade through.
Farmland Crunch combines The Farmer’s Cow Hay! Hay! Hay! Vanilla mixed with chunks of butter crunch candy, roasted almonds and chocolate chips all wrapped with a caramel swirl. It tastes fantastic! This new flavor tastes even better when folks know that every delicious mouthful helps preserve farmland in Connecticut.
The newest flavors are now available in pints at retail locations throughout Connecticut including Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, independent grocers and The Farmer’s Cow Calfé & Creamery in Mansfield, CT.
The Farmer’s Cow first introduced ice cream to its fresh local product line in 2010. Every ice cream flavor from The Farmer’s Cow is artfully developed and carefully crafted until it is just right.
“We enjoy inventing new ice cream flavors that our customers will love,” says Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmer’s Cow. “We created Farmland Crunch as a delicious way to spread the word about the importance of preserving agricultural land. Farmland has been lost at an alarming rate and really is in a ‘crunch’ in Connecticut. We hope to draw attention to the need of saving land for the benefit of current and future generations. Each tasty lick of our new ice cream flavor, Farmland Crunch, will help The Connecticut Farmland Trust in its work to save farmland.”
“Every year, Connecticut loses more farmland than it is able to save,” says Jim Gooch, Executive Director of Connecticut Farmland Trust. “We are so grateful to The Farmer’s Cow for all they do to help us in our work. Together, we’re making real progress – and that means more and better locally grown food for the future.”
