Blackwell Dairy Farm in Kamloops has just released a new pumpkin spice eggnog just in time for the Thanksgiving long weekend.

“We had so much fun with the chocolate eggnog at Easter, we have to spice things up for Thanksgiving,” farm manager Laura Hunter said.

The eggnog was packaged late last night, Oct. 4, and went out for delivery early this morning to Save-On-Foods and Safeway grocery stores as well as all boutique grocery stores in Kamloops, the Shuswap and Okanagan.

“It’s just a little twist on the season and we’re having fun with it, and it’s so good,” Hunter said.

The eggnog is always a hit and was initially produced for the Christmas season but due to popularity the company has since made other seasonal flavours.

The farm started its operations in east Kamloops in 1913. In 1983, the processing plant was built and the farm was incorporated in 1986 as Blackwell Dairy Farm Inc.

They currently produce 2,000 litres of liquid milk product every day from their cows, as well as cows from other nearby farms.
