EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. – Prairie Farms Dairy kicked off July and National Ice Cream Month by making its premium small batch vanilla ice cream available in a package large enough to feed the whole family – and then some.

The company, upon rolling out 4 quart pails that contain 24 servings of ice cream, shared that the idea came about after Prairie Farms’ premium small batch ice cream products proved to be popular with consumers. 

"Nothing captures the taste of summer like ice cream, and the only thing better than our Premium Vanilla Small Batch Ice Cream is more of it,” said Matt McClelland, chief executive officer and executive vice president at Prairie Farms.

“We received many requests for a larger size, so adding this unique option to our lineup in time for National Ice Cream Month made sense," McClelland explained. "I also want to acknowledge the hard work of our dairy farmers, who pride themselves on producing high-quality milk. Because of their effort, our ice cream is best-in-class, and it starts with the basics – 100% real milk and cream from local family dairy farms.”

Prairie Farms said it blends its ice cream in small batches, with cream, milk and sugar as the primary ingredients
