At South Mountain Creamery, visitors can feed calves and have delicious ice cream and other products straight from the farm.
Located just outside of Frederick, Maryland is South Mountain Creamery (SMC). This dairy farm is passionate about what they do and has been delivering quality products to it’s customers since its founding in 2001. They believe in sustainable practices, treating their animals responsibly and humanely, and using the finest resources available. They do everything there on the farm meaning they grow, process, package, and sell their own products. They call this their “from field to fork” process.
Customers can have farm-fresh milk, eggs, meat, produce and more delivered straight to their door. You can also stop in if you’re in the area. During our visit, we went inside Karen’s Kountry Store for some super-premium ice cream. I had some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! 😀 While I ate, I checked out some of their other products. Cheeses, meat products, and pretty much everything that you could also get delivered to your home.
Then we moved on to the main reason for our visit. We wanted to feed the baby cows!! Omg, they were so adorable!!
The calves are fed every day at 4pm (rain or shine). A large bottle is placed in front of each calf so you can go along the line feeding to your hearts content.
They were so frickin’ cute!! And strong too. They want their food, so hold on to that bottle tight!
SMC also has a small playground for kids to play in. It’s a good place to stretch your legs and take in the surrounding land.
SMC also offers tours which take you through every part of the dairy farm process. It does require at least one week’s notice, however. I think it would have been really cool to go on the tour and learn more about their sustainability efforts.
We had a great time at SMC and would recommend anyone in the area to stop by. It’s great for kids and adults and is both a yummy and educational experience!
