Eat Local~ Merrymead Farm

I recently discovered a blog called Eat Local Philly. I know, awesome, right? I am really excited to read about familiar and new places to visit and try.  One of their posts was about our local farm so I thought I would share. We take the girls here in the fall to check out the pumpkins and their ice cream is the best anytime of year!

 Eat Local Philly by Jo-Lynne on 6/10/10

Merrymead Farm is located in Lansdale, Montgomery County.

It’s been years since I’ve been to Merrymead, but this is a lovely spot to stop and visit.  There are all kinds of seasonal activities for the family, and if you visit between 3pm and 6pm, you can see the cows being milked — a great opportunity to introduce your kids to where their food comes from!
We are a family owned and operated working dairy farm and farm market. Merrymead is one of Pennsylvania’s Century Farms and has been in the same family for over 100 years.
Registered Holstein cows supply the National Quality Award Winning Milk – which is processed, packaged and sold on the premises, along with buttermilk, heavy cream, and half & half. Enjoy a delicious ice cream cone or take home a Gram’s Apple pie, fresh from our bakery!
Their hours vary by season, so it’s best to check the site.
