The average cow produces seven gallons of milk a day. In order to do that, the cow eats a heaping wheelbarrow full of food and drinks a bathtub full of water every day. The cow needs to be milked twice a day, usually very early in the morning and again in the afternoon. Betsy Herbst likes to share facts like these as she teaches about the roles farmers play in today's society. A 4-H leader, Herbst is chairwoman of the Ag Room at Discovery Station at Hagerstown Inc. In the room, children can learn about the work that goes into growing the food we eat. "You have to explain to them that this stuff doesn't originate from the grocery store," says Herbst, who lives on a dairy farm in Ringgold, where she works with her husband, David Herbst.

Eating ice cream to beat the summer heat is one of America's favorite pastimes.   Homemade ice cream can be a special treat, but it can also become a threat because of salmonellosis. While commercially manufactured ice cream is typically made with pasteurized eggs or egg products, recipes for homemade ice cream often use raw eggs in the base mixture. If your favorite ice cream recipe uses uncooked eggs, it is time to replace or revise it. Those raw eggs may contain salmonella bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.

Valley Pride LLC, a group of 21 family farms based in the Harrisonburg, Va., area, has purchased the former Good Humor-Breyers ice-cream plant in Hagerstown and plans to begin milk and ice-cream production this fall, according to a company official. Randy Inman, vice president of Valley Pride and Shenandoah Family Farms Cooperative, declined to say how much the cooperative paid for the property. During a ceremony Tuesday, at which Hagerstown and Washington County officials joined company officials in making the announcement about the purchase of the plant, Inman said it's been “a long, hard road.” The farmers have worked diligently to try to “fulfill this lifelong dream of ours to own our own processing facilities,” he said.

On Tuesday, Maryland Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance tried a sample of the Mango Wine Sorbet at Misty Meadow Farm near Smithsburg. “I thought it had wine,” Hance said after trying it and realizing that he was correct. Hance stopped at the creamery on the farm as part of his journey on Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail. Misty Meadow Farm is one of the trail's eight dairy farms across the state that produce ice cream and sell it directly to customers. He said each farm has something that sets it apart.

Fruit takes on a whole new flavor when kissed by fire and flame.  Once the subtle sweetness caramelizes on the surface of the fruit, it makes for a delicious treat ready for dessert or a sweet side with your favorite grilled protein. I'm going to take baby steps in grilling, going from an easy recipe and building up to more complex recipes featuring sauces to accompany the tender, grilled fruit.  As always, feel free to make the recipe your own by adding your own fruit to the mix. - Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va., and chef ambassador to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

The 300 gallons of peach ice cream turned for the small community's popular two-day festival in northern Washington County was in high demand, too. Some things never change, thankfully. “Pretty much tastes the same ... creamy,” said Gloria Robinson, smiling as she and her husband, Vince, savored the last of their frozen treat served in a small white Styrofoam bowl at Leitersburg Ruritan Community Park. The festival, the Leitersburg Ruritan Club's largest annual fundraiser, continues Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., in the park behind Leitersburg Fire Hall.

July is National Ice Cream Month.  Many people like me will invent reasons to eat ice cream. This is the month the mercury flirts with 100, so why not eat ice cream? I am sure in our hurried work-a-day world, few people take time to make their own ice cream anymore. I am also sure if you asked someone if they have an ice cream freezer, they would look puzzled and say “no,” but they have them in the grocery store. So where did ice cream come from? Sit back and learn the story or lore, if you will.

There's a scene in “The Sound of Music” that came to mind last weekend. The scene captures the children's personalities as Maria meets them for the first time.     The Captain has the children line up and step forward as he makes each one's sound on his whistle. They state their names, ages and tell Maria a little bit about themselves.   Louisa, the 13-year-old, tries to pass for Brigitta, one of the younger girls. She wants to see if Maria was paying attention when they were first introduced.
