Visitors can see firsthand how cows produce milk that is either bottled or made into ice cream. They also can meet a baby calf, tour the farmstead, take a hayride and purchase Sassy Cow’s ice cream and other products. The free event takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sassy Cow, W4192 Bristol Road, Columbus. Brothers James and Robert Baerwolf and their families milk 500 dairy cows there.
Sassy Cow also says there’ll be tastings of “local dairy products from Cesar’s Cheese, Sugar Brook Farms, Sugar River Dairy, Crave Brother’s Cheese, Nordic Creamery, and Noble View Dairy. We will also sample our new low fat chocolate milk at the event.”
If you can’t make it to this event, the Sassy Cow website lists two other upcoming festivities: a “Summer Farm Celebration” on Saturday, July 21, and an “Ice Cream Social” on Saturday, August 25. The latter will include the unveiling of a new ice cream flavor; submit your own idea(s), and the winner will get a year supply of ice cream! Here are the flavor-contest details:
Three dozen or so ice cream flavors simply aren’t enough for us at Sassy Cow Creamery. And while we always enjoy coming up with new seasonal flavors of premium ice cream, this time we are offering our ice-cream-loving fans a chance to get in on the tasty fun, too. That’s why we are sponsoring a contest for a new farmstead-fresh ice cream flavor. Consumers are invited to create their own ice cream flavors for the contest.
The winning flavor will be announced and served on August 25, 2012, at our on-farm Ice Cream Social. The winner will be honored at the unraveling of this new flavor tasting event, and will receive a one-year supply of Sassy Cow Creamery Premium Farmstead Ice Cream. The winning ice cream flavor will have to live up to the creamery’s high standards. Our farmstead ice cream is freshly made using milk produced by cows on our families’ dairy farms and other high-quality ingredients.
Use The Online Form to enter The Contest. Submit as many different flavors as you want (only one flavor per form).
