Perhaps it is permanent imprint of the evening sun setting over its three silos, or maybe it could be the 16 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream or the custom blended shakes that dot your children’s smiling faces. It could be the inhale of the fresh farm air that renews our spirit, or the chorus of livestock in the distance, or the annual trickery of the corn maze, or the petting zoo or the faces at the general store whom you’ve known for years.

For many Cecil County residents, Kilby Cream has served as the equivalent of a trusted heirloom in our transient and expeditious world, growing and supplying fresh farm produce to thousands of families, simply.

Nestled on a peaceful farm just outside of Rising Sun, Kilby Cream has welcomed our families on weekend ritual visits to its ice cream store for its freshly-made, hand-dipped ice cream, custom blended shakes, sundaes, freshly made waffle cones or a giant ice cream cookie instead. Kilby Cream not only nourishes our soul but our bodies, by partnering with other local farms to offer a wide selection of fresh meatscheesesmilk, and eggs.

In a world that has become increasingly unsure of its footing, Kilby Cream is our reassurance that we are still bound to traditions and by our nature, predisposed to seeking safe spaces four ourselves and out family. Along Strohmaier Lane in Rising Sun, Kilby Cream is our constant reminder that the other side of our lives is much quieter, far more welcoming, and so very precious.
