Exciting Announcements for Milkshake Fans!

The Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association is excited to announce several new opportunities for our Milkshake fans.

NEW “Milkshakes on the Moo-ve” Food Truck

Join us on Friday, January 8 at 10:30 a.m. for our NEW “Milkshakes on the Moo-ve” food truck ribbon cutting ceremony at the Karns Foods Mechanicsburg location. We will be joined by our friends at the PA Co-Operative Potato Growers and their powdered-sugar potato donuts. The “Milkshakes on the Moo-ve” food truck will also be available on Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10 at select Karns locations.

In an effort to honor our state’s healthcare workers, the Pa. Dairymen’s Association will be offering FREE milkshakes to hospital and nursing home healthcare heroes, with a valid ID. The free shakes will be available on Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9 ONLY.

“We’re dairy-excited to be on the moo-ve bringing PA Dairymen’s milkshake joy to central Pennsylvanians,” said Dave Smith, Executive Director of Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association.

“While we are all heartbroken we can’t gather at the PA Farm Show this year due to the pandemic, we are pleased to offer our delicious milkshakes via our NEW food truck. We remain grateful to the Karns family, Stauffers of Kissel Hill, and the area businesses and restaurants for supporting our state’s dairy and agricultural industries, as well as all of our philanthropic endeavors.“

Calving Corner 

Presented by Pennsylvania’s dairy industry, and traditionally featured during the PA Farm Show, the Calving Corner is in its fourth year. This program was created to provide the public with a unique, behind-the-scenes look at Pennsylvania family dairy farms and offers an opportunity to learn more about how food is grown and where it comes from, in addition to watching the miracle of live birth of a dairy calf.

The Calving Corner is pleased to offer a virtual experience in 2021:
