Farm fresh offerings are abundant in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, even in the winter. Bucks County is a rural paradise featuring a wide selection of Farm Markets. If you’re looking for the farm nearest to you, the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences Bucks County Cooperative Extension displays over seventy locations of possibilities on its “Fresh From Bucks County Farms” (Penn State, 2010) informative web site, including addresses and information about year-round “roadside markets and pick your own farms” (Penn State, 2010).
If you want fresh dairy, Tanner Brothers on 1070 Hatboro Road in Ivyland, Pennsylvania is a supreme choice. They’re open seven days a week, all year. While you won’t be able to see cows grazing on Tanner’s bountiful pastures in cooler months, you will be able to purchase many different varieties of fresh milk, including the best chocolate and strawberry milk you’ll find anywhere – as well as fresh produce inside their store. Their homemade ice cream is absolutely heavenly, and is available any time of the year in just about every flavor you can think of. If a cone or a shake isn’t enough while you’re there, you can take a peek at their ice cream freezer and bring home a carton or two of their sinfully delicious flavors.
