The Turkey Hill Experience

Who doesn't love ice cream? I am a big fan myself and now that the warmer months are on their way, I thought I would share my trip to the Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, Pa. Turkey Hill ice cream is one of my faves, and my Dad was a big fan as well. We always had ice cream in our house, and peanut butter was the flavor of choice. 

The Turkey Hill Experience is a 17,000 sq ft attraction based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania that pays homage to Turkey Hill Dairy’s history while highlighting its ice cream and iced tea-making processes. It opened in June 2011 and is located in Columbia, Pennsylvania, just six miles from the company’s main production facility in Conestoga, Pennsylvania.

Gotta love the cows who make this wonderful ice cream! 
I loved the vintage truck and uniform of Turkey Hill Dairy 

Turkey Hill Dairy began in 1931 during the Great Depression, when farmer Armor Frey began selling bottled milk to neighbors from his sedan. ... In 1954, the dairy began making ice cream, which sold well in Lancaster County, and in 1981, they started selling the ice cream through a few independent stores in Philadelphia.

I was not aware you can find Turkey Hill products outside of Pennsylvania before I did this tour. 

I loved the history of the containers from beginning to today. I personally liked the one from 1981-1999 as it was so easy to scoop out the ice cream! 
You learn about the ingredients that go into the ice cream and the science behind it too. 

Turkey Hill produces more than 60 full-time and Limited Edition flavors of ice cream, frozen yogurt and sherbet available in 48-US-fluid-ounce (1,400 mL), 1-US-pint (470 mL) sizes and 3-US-gallon (11 L) sizes for use by ice cream shops. Specific product lines include Premium Ice Cream, All Natural Ice Cream, Stuff’d, Light Recipe, and No Sugar Added, in addition to frozen yogurt and sherbet.
Just up my alley, make your own flavor! Yay! 

They allow taste testing which is fantastic and you can more than 1 flavor. I really liked Party Cake and Muddy Sneakers. 
The taste lab is a must do when visiting and does require reservations and additional fee to the experience but oh so worth it! 
Life doesn't get any better than this, does it? 
So many flavors to add to your vanilla ice cream as well as all types of candies and goodies 
Yes, I added some Reeses Pieces, mini chocolate chips and caramel to my flavor 

The Turkey Hill Experience is great for those young and old, highly recommend!
