Don’t Miss This Popular KY Dairy Barn, Its Amazing Ice Cream, or the Nearby Giant Fork
There are two types of day trips, in my opinion. On one type of excursion, you just hop in the car and go. Whatever you see that looks interesting, pull over and check it out.
The other type has a pre-planned destination, but it's a last-minute call. You see, I get this from my dad. He was always one to announce, "We're going for a drive," and then we'd all get our shoes on and pile into the van. Sometimes he didn't have a destination in mind, and sometimes he did. But if it was the latter, he wouldn't tell us. And that's the key.
THE LITERAL FORK IN THE ROAD
Saturday we took off and took ADVANTAGE on a beautiful day, much improved over the frigid Friday that preceded it. I knew where we were going, and it began with this giant fork in the road in Simpson County.
CHANEY'S DAIRY BARN IN BOWLING GREEN
It ended at a popular south central Kentucky attraction--just up the road from the big fork--whose brown road sign you always see when you drive past Bowling Green on Interstate 165. Trust me, if haven't done so, you MUST heed its call and VISIT Chaney's Dairy Barn on U.S. 31W. I mean, once you've seen a giant fork in the road, it's time to use a SPOON for the best reason, possible.
And if you haven't already guessed, the best possible reason to use a spoon is when you shove it into a bowl of ice cream...and not just any old ice cream. Chaney's Dairy Barn's ice cream is made right there from cream expressed from cattle raised on the property in Warren County.
But it's not just ice cream. All the milk you see in the refrigerators inside Chaney's Dairy Barn is pasteurized on sight. Plus, when you DO go inside, there's a photo op waiting for you right when you walk in.
That cream in Chaney's Dairy Barn's is so silky smooth; it enhances the flavor in ways I've never experienced with other ice creams. And I love that it doesn't travel far to get there. So do thousands of fans from all over the world, not just Kentucky.
CHANEY'S DAIRY BARN IS OVER 200 YEARS OLD
And to think it all started with a land grant in 1811 from then-Governor Charles Scott:
There's always time for great ice cream, but more importantly, there's always time for relaxing road trips, giant forks in the road, AND great ice cream.
