I am so happy to share that my Uncle, who owns an organic dairy farm in the beautiful Long Green Valley here in Maryland, has opened his family-operated organic creamery, Prigel Family Creamery.
Last year I had the privilege of following Uncle Bobby and his sons around the farm for a couple of days, to capture some images of farm life to display in the Creamery building once it was up and running. Maybe you remember some of the photos I shared back then…
This is a view of Bellevale Farm, which has been in the Prigel family for four generations. The Creamery is the building on the far right.
Last Saturday, the Prigel Family Creamery opened its doors. Steve, the girls, and I were able to visit on Friday and I grabbed some photos of all the fun!
So fun to see some of my photos on display!
My cousin Mandy is on the right. I am also so excited to see the cow I drew incorporated into that great logo! I’ve certainly had cows on my mind for the last year or so.
My cousin’s husband, Kelvin (scooping ice cream, in one of the above pictures) is the resident chef and ice cream genious. He’s made 16 + flavors and without any bias I can honestly say that it’s the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted! The rural surroundings are lovely, the ice cream is delicious, the Prigel family is gracious, and I would encourage all ice cream lovers out there to make the trip! Organic milk, butter, yogurt, and cheese are products they plan to offer in the future…but I think that a double-scoop of Kelvin’s Pumpkin ice cream will set me up forever!
Most importantly, the Prigels are giving glory to God for bringing all of this to fruition. It’s been a long journey and I’m so glad I can celebrate with them and contribute a pretty picture or two to make the Creamery such a beautiful place to visit! This rock embedded in the Creamery porch says it so well…

They’ll be hosting a Fall Fiesta on Saturday November 6th from 12pm-5pm. Hayrides, pumpkins, cider, scarecrow making, and ice cream will all be a part of the fun! If you’re anywhere close to the Baltimore County area you won’t want to miss it! More information is on their website.
