The summer is really heating up, and what better way to beat the heat than ice cream, especially today because July 17th is National Peach Ice Cream day!

Peaches are native to China. Spanish explorers brought the fruit to the new world in the 16th century.

Now, after apples, peaches are the second biggest fruit crop in the United States

Lots of local orchards and farm-stands are selling peaches now in the Heartland.

Click here for the ice cream recipe we made with Heartland Cooks the Beaird family in Bernie, MO last month.

We want to know your favorite spot to get the sweet treat. Tell us on the KFVS12 Facebook page right now, so everyone in the heartland can join in on peach ice cream day.
