Pop-up ice cream shop coming to Canby
The Oregon Dairy Women, in conjunction with Wilco Farm Stores, will bring its "Red Barn on Wheels" ice cream pop-up event to Canby Aug. 21-23.
As part of an ice cream tour, the trailer will be open at the Canby Wilco from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Wilco for 18 days this summer to put smiles on people's faces with cones and shakes, and hope to raise funds for our nonprofit organization along the way," said Becky Heimerl, Oregon Dairy Woman president. "One hundred percent of the proceeds from ice cream sales go towards our scholarship and Dairy Princess Ambassador Program."
In 2020, the Oregon Dairy Women provided 13 college scholarships to students.
The Red Barn on Wheels menu will serve-up cones and shakes. The swirl cone will be on the menu, along with chocolate and vanilla cones in regular and waffle cone options. Five shake flavors will also be offered: Oreo, Marionberry, Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla.
"Wilco saw this as a great opportunity to offer 4-H and FFA students, their families and advisors a small piece of fair this summer, with so many fairs and festivals being canceled this year due to COVID-19," said Jake Wilson, Wilco director of marketing and eCommerce. "We know it doesn't make-up for the loss of their fair experience, but we hope the Red Barn on Wheels adds a little perk to community members over the weekends that the fairs would've been taking place."
