Farmer's Cow Announces Winners in Ice Cream Naming Contest

By Farmer's Cow Press Release (4/12/10)

  APRIL 15, 2010 --

Eleven Connecticut residents will soon have to go on a diet. The Farmer's Cow, a group of local Connecticut dairy farms that sell dairy, eggs and other products, has picked eleven winners in their ice cream naming contest and each winner will receive a summer's supply of The Farmer's Cow Ice Cream.

"It was a lot of fun to hold the contest and sift through over 3,000 names for our various ice cream flavors," says Robin Chesmer, managing partner with The Farmer's Cow. "It was a lot of work judging all of the names, but we've narrowed the choices. It was really a tough job because there were so many good names! We blind judged all the entries and had no idea who entered the ice cream names so I'm pleased to see that our winners cover the entire state and ranged in age from high school to their 90s."

The winning names and their creators are:

"Hay! Hay! Hay! Vanilla" - Tracy Shortell, Wallingford
"Cow Barn Chocolate" - Sebastian Tonewo, Franklin
"Farm Stand Cherry Vanilla" - Karen Provoncha, Storrs
"Summer Meadow Strawberry" - Kip Kolesinskas, Manchester
"Up Early Coffee" - Jim Orffitelli, Manchester
"Heifer Nutter Peanut Butter Cup" - Sam Hinckley, Windsor
"Fields of Mint Chocolate Chip" - Jennifer Gaskins, Newtown
"Milking Time Cookies & Cream" - Marc Sanchez, Manchester
"Black Raspberry Moo Chocolate Chip" - Barbara Hambach, Broad Brook
"Muddy Boots Chocolate Chocolate Chip" - Zak Nadeau, Moosup

Additionally, one name was picked at random from all of the entrants. That person was Allen Patenaude of Torrington.

"Now our work turns to getting our delicious new ice cream in the stores to help cool Connecticut residents this summer," says Chesmer. "We anticipate having our first batches of Connecticut farm-fresh ice cream available by Memorial Day."
