Ice Cream and Mexican Food Anyone?

The Farmington community has a yummy combination
to look forward to all summer long

Skowhegan, Maine—June 1, 2016 — Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream is delighted to announce that the new authentic Mexican Food Truck, El Toro, launched this spring by Weld native Garnet Keim and his wife and business partner Anne Holloway, will be a regular presence at the Gifford’s Ice Cream Stand in downtown Farmington throughout the summer starting today, June 1st.

“We are excited to announce our new partnership with El Toro,” said Samantha Gifford, marketing manager at the 5th generation ice cream company. “We love Mexican Food and when we learned about Anne and Garnet’s new food truck, we knew it would be the perfect compliment to our ice cream.”

The food truck will be parked every Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until supplies last) at the Farmington Gifford’s Ice Cream Stand located at 293 Main Street.

El Toro serves authentic Mexican food made from scratch and with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.

“El Toro is thrilled to partner with another family-owned Maine business committed to using local ingredients,” said El Toro co-founder Anne Holloway. “Gifford’s Moose Tracks is our family’s favorite flavor, and we hope that our food truck’s presence at the Gifford’s Ice Cream stand in Farmington will encourage other families to come out and enjoy great tacos and burritos and finish it off with a delicious ice cream cone!”
