After traveling 2,500 miles all throughout the South for the annual corn party (more on this after I've gone through some pretty epic video footage...), we had exactly one day to relax, unpack, and get ready for the busy month ahead.
The first thing we did was make ice cream. With our trucks scheduled to go out the first of April and a VERY empty freezer, we scrambled to get flavors ready for the upcoming season. Luckily, a few of our employees - plus a few newbies - pitched in to help us get ahead. Within a couple weeks we were ready to start the season - soon all your favorite flavors will be traveling right to you!
A funny thing about making ice cream. On St. Patrick's Day, we posted a Boomerang video of us making our green mint cookie ice cream. A week later, we noticed something. This little 10-second video has now been viewed by 826 thousand people, most of them in India. Why that's happened, we don't know. But this little video sure went places!
We also made a lot of fun new updates to both Scoop 1 and 2, which you can check out in our next blog! We're talking all things old and new about our trucks, including our brand-new pint containers!
Continuing with all things ice cream, we invited all our current and new employees to attend our very first ice cream orientation. We did a little scooping, a little customer service training, and a little driving practice. We had a great time showing all our new employees around and getting them ready for their first season in the Scoops!
We had two very special applicants join us for training. They over-scooped a bit and they definitely can't drive the truck, but they sure did make us laugh.
The month ended with our Easter celebrations. We had to do quite the cleaning in the barn, as Kyle had moved all his tools, both the ice cream trucks, and a few other random "fix-its" in over the winter, but we were so happy to welcome you all to the farm. Thank you for celebrating Easter with us. We hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday.
View our Easter video on the blog or on YouTube! Love and donuts from all of us at the farm.
Fun on the farm...in blog form!
