Massachusetts is getting an Ice Cream Trail

We’ve got the scoop on a new tourism trail guaranteed to give you a sugar rush this summer.

We know Boston has a lot of great ice cream shops to enjoy all summer long. The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources has been churning up a new opportunity to celebrate local businesses. Here’s the scoop.

The statewide organization is working to create an official “Massachusetts Ice Cream Trail.” The project has been in the works for over a year and aims to promote local dairy farms that run their own ice cream sales and ice cream parlors that offer products made with local milk.

As WBUR said, it will result in a digital + print map of participating dairy farms and ice cream shops where people can find locally made scoops, pints, and more. This ice cream trail will help to celebrate the Bay State’s dairy industry, support local tourism, and give a sugar rush to ice cream enthusiasts everywhere.

The goal is to debut the ice cream trail in July, which also happens to be National Ice Cream Month.
