Calling all ice cream connoisseurs! Join us for a fun afternoon of learning about Pawpaw trees and their fruit. We’ll hike through the Pawpaw patch, open up the fruits, learn about their history, and see how ice cream is made. We’ll end our time together with a taste test of our native hand-made Pawpaw ice cream.
