What's better than homemade ice cream in the middle of a late August heat wave? Cheap homemade ice cream in the middle of a late August heat wave.
Lucky for us, Superstition Farms is offering some sweet dairy discounts and exclusives for cow connoisseurs who join their Dairy Club, which folks can now do online.
Pre-order members of the club receive homemade ice cream, fresh churned butter, cheese and milk straight from the cow, and a special "mystery" item made by a local foodie or farmer. Past mystery items have included such tantalizing creations as cherry mint ice cream or mango butter.
Superstition Farms' Web site touts that all these goods are available to members at a discounted rate of $25 and will be prepared the night before pick-up. Members can also purchase fresh farm eggs about $2 cheaper than the regular price.
Items are available for pick-up every other Saturday, along with free product samples -- and who doesn't love free samples?
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
