The Jericho Farmhouse
When their family dairy farm was met with adversity, the Coombs family put their heads together and came up with a plan to keep their family farm in business. The solution? Ice cream! The family purchased a trailer which enabled them to have a mobile market for their homemade ice cream. When the Covid-19 pandemic shut down all of the festivals, events, and other gatherings, they set up the trailer at the edge of the farm and sold ice cream by the road. No matter the obstacle, the Coombses are determined to overcome it! The most important thing to the Coombses is keeping the farm in the family for the next generation, and it’s obvious that they have the determination to achieve just that!
Jericho Farmhouse will soon have a market right there on the farm. They are currently constructing a storefront in which they can sell their own farm products, as well as other local farmer’s products and produce.
Head over to their website to learn more, and go out to get some yummy ice cream! It may be January but it’s never too cold for ice cream!
