In 2010, the town of Tillamook, Oregon was ranked one of the top 10 Places for a Blue Ribbon County Fair by USA Today. This year is no exception. The Tillamook County Fair was hopping on opening day. Members of local 4-H clubs and their leaders worked alongside Tillamook employees scooping nearly 1000 delicious Tillamook ice cream cones for fairgoers. That’s a lot of ice cream! Though there was no clear winner when it came to crowd pleasers, Grandma’s Cake Batter, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Coffee Almond Fudge competed fiercely at the top.
This is the second year Tillamook has partnered with the 4-H program to scoop ice cream at the booth and, in return, 4-H receives the proceeds from the sales to fund individual programs and provide scholarships. Last year, we raised $11,300 at the booth and this year we are hoping to do even better. So come on out and visit us at the fair through August 13th. After you have a scoop of ice cream, go check out the beauties in the dairy barn. It’s their hard work that goes into making creamy Tillamook ice cream.
