Turkey Hill Country Classic has raised nearly $57,000 for the Trust to date

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (April 11, 2013) — The 14th Annual Turkey Hill Country Classic, held on Saturday, May 4, will not only provide a day of athletic events and family-oriented events, but will also benefit the Lancaster Farmland Trust, which has preserved 360 farms and over 22,500 acres of Lancaster County farmland since its inception in 1988.

"At Turkey Hill Dairy, we believe that where we come from is why our products are good," said Quintin Frey, president of Turkey Hill Dairy. "We have been a longtime supporter of the Lancaster Farmland Trust to help preserve the local farmland for future generations. Held in the heart of Lancaster County's countryside, Turkey Hill Country Classic is a great way to benefit the Trust."

To date, the Turkey Hill Country Classic has raised nearly $57,000 for the Lancaster Farmland Trust.

Held at Central Manor Church of God (387 Penn Street) in Manor Township, the Turkey Hill Country Classic features an array of events, including cycling, running and youth events, as well as free kids' rides, games, music, and, of course, lots of Turkey Hill beverages and ice cream including, Turkey Hill Dairy's All Natural Ice Cream. Attendees can also enjoy special appearances from the Phillie Phanatic, the Turkey Hill Experience mascot Callie, and various Hersheypark mascots.

Additionally, the Baby Derby is back inviting all babies 14 months and younger to compete on the "Crawl Way." The first one to reach the finish line will be named the fastest baby in Lancaster County and will win a free Giant Cow birthday party. All attendees can also enter for the chance to win a year's supply of Turkey Hill Ice Cream.
