Jedi’s 1st grade class went on a field trip last week to the Velvet Ice Cream factory, and we went along as chaperones. We thought it’d be fun to see how ice cream is made (nevermind the fact that we’re a family of *4* dairy allergic people. But, they had sorbet there, so all’s good. 😀 )
The tour started out with a huge water wheel and then continued to a little “school house” where the students heard a lecture about how ice cream is made. Then everyone went to the viewing window to see the workers making and packaging the ice cream. I didn’t get a lot of pictures of the inside of the factory itself because of the way the machines were positioned. Finally, everyone went outside to enjoy the beautiful grounds and sample some treats.
