Fifer’s Customer Appreciation Day…

…aka their Peach Ice Cream Day. A 37-year tradition, Fifer’s will be filling cone after cone with this perfect taste of summer all day on August 12th. Festivities abound…from bluegrass music to hay rides to buying way-too-many pies to take home. For those of us who grew up around farms and farming, these are the beginning celebrations of bounty, of hard work made tangible and of a gear change into the full harvest season. So, it just makes sense to eat homemade fruit-filled ice cream, doesn’t it?
