With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Come to Trickling Springs Creamery to enjoy one of our delicious flavors of ice cream made in-house using only the freshest ingredients. Nothing artificial and no preservatives! We offer made-to-order sandwiches, including our popular soft pretzel sandwiches, all made with locally sourced ingredients. Also try an ice cream flight, a delicious sundae or one of our seasonal specialties like eggnog or dark chocolate milk! We have both indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy your treats. Every morning, Monday through Friday, peek through the window in the back of our store to see our milk being bottled the old fashioned way - in bottles. Kids can enjoy learning about where milk comes from, about a day in the life of a farmer and milk's journey from farm to table. We also provide catering services.
Trickling Springs Creamery was founded in 2001 by two friends who aimed to produce fresh, exceptional tasting dairy products while promoting local farmers. Today, our company still honors the same values. We are stewards of our environment making food production environmentally sustainable from the animals to the table. We believe animals should be cared for in a way that respects them and their natural environment. We believe in minimally processed dairy foods from grass fed cows that promote health and safety of our foods from the farm to the consumer. We believe that farmers should be paid fairly, recognizing their contribution to our communities and enabling their family operations to be sustainable and multi-generational.
We give back to our community regularly through events like our annual farm to table dinner benefitting local charities and our Adopt a Cow program where proceeds go to support the Young Farmer's and Rancher's Association. We offer many local products in addition to our own including honey, maple syrup, jams, apple butter and coffee.
