COLUMBIA, Pennsylvania, USA /PRNewswire/ — June 4th marked the grand opening of the Mid-Atlantic’s newest visitor destination – the Turkey Hill Experience. In Pennsylvania’s popular destination of Lancaster County, the Experience will highlight the ice cream making process and history of one of the nation’s top dairies. The Dairy anticipates it will attract more than 250,000 visitors a year.

The Columbia, Pa.-based Turkey Hill Experience features 26,000 square feet of interactive exhibits created in partnership with Boston Productions Incorporated, a cafe, and retail space. Nine large interactive exhibit areas will allow visitors to learn more about Turkey Hill’s history, Lancaster County’s rich agricultural heritage, and how the Dairy’s top-selling ice cream and iced tea flavors are selected and created. Visitors will also have the chance to participate in such exhibits as how to make your own ice cream commercial, naming your own ice cream flavors and what your favorite tea flavor says about your personality.

“We are so excited to share the history and heritage of Turkey Hill Dairy,” said Turkey Hill President Quintin Frey. “My family’s dairy has been operating here since 1931, so we have 80 years of great stories to tell. Making ice cream and iced tea has always been a lot of fun. By also showcasing the science, technology, and mechanics about how our products are made, we can provide a great learning experience and a great time to all of our visitors.”

In keeping with the Dairy’s strong commitment to preserving Lancaster County farmland and cultural traditions, the Turkey Hill Experience is housed in what was once the Ashley & Bailey Silk Mill, which had been vacant for more than 25 years. This adaptive land reuse project supports Turkey Hill Dairy’s commitment to land preservation and economic growth in Lancaster County.

The address is 301 Linden Street, Columbia, PA. For more information, visit www.turkeyhillexperience.com.

Located in the rich farming country of Lancaster County, Pa., Turkey Hill Dairy produces the fourth largest-selling premium ice cream brand and the top-selling refrigerated iced tea brand in the nation. The third-generation, family-run dairy sells its products in a market that extends along the East Coast from Maine to Florida – and as far west as Oregon, Washington and Alaska.
