The Turkey Hill Giant Cow in the picture above is a common site in Lancaster County, and along the Eastern seaboard, too. Turkey Hill is a local dairy with a wide reach, and this cow travels to many major events.
My dad worked at the dairy his whole adult life and, among his responsibilities, was helping to choose the ice cream flavors. So we always had ice cream around when I was growing up. Dad would try out the flavors on us.
Maybe that’s why I’m an ice cream nut. If it’s in the house, I eat it. When I know it’s there, I can’t go to bed without some. So I try not to buy it.
