Working for ice cream

13 Jul

Imagine getting off your bike to find a delicious pint of freshly churned homemade ice cream waiting for you!

That’s what our campers did during their tour of Ample Hills Creamery in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. They took turns pedaling for their delicious summer treat, and had a blast!

Ample Hills is not your average ice cream shop. The founder, Brian Smith has his own vat pasteurizer, where he cooks his milk, eggs, cream and sugar, which makes his ice cream shop the only dairy plant in NYC. Brian also sources his dairy and eggs from local upstate New York farms, making each scoop unbelievably fresh.

Could this be the highlight of our campers summer? Perhaps, but we have so much more in store! Stay tuned…
