Sadly, not every state in the U.S. has Turkey Hill in stores. The dairy started making ice cream in 1954 and it was popular in the Lancaster County area. Later, the dairy expanded into Philadelphia and New Jersey, and it was also distributed in places further west. As time went on, the company began expanding its distribution area and has since expanded its teas and ice cream to 43 states.
If you want to enjoy the delicious taste of ice cream at home, try Turkey Hill All Natural Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. It contains the same ingredients that are used in homemade ice cream. In addition to being creamy and rich, this flavor has just the right amount of vanilla flavor to satisfy your sweet tooth. You can buy it at your local grocery store for a fraction of the cost of homemade ice cream.
The shop is located in the former Ashley and Bailey silk mill, which was constructed in 1899. The building changed hands many times during the decades after, and eventually was used by several owners. After the Tidy Products company decided to close down the silk mill, it was left largely unusable as an ice cream factory. The Marietta and West York Silk Mills are both on the National Register of Historic Places.
