My friends and family took me on the cows ice cream factory tour in north river. On my birthday a few years ago. I've since gone numerous times when I have company. It was lots of fun. And smelt amazing and was very interesting. There were quizzes so everyone won a small gift or momento from cows. I won a... More

We had a wonderful time at COWS. Aside from learning many things on the tour, we indulged in a cone and bought several creatively funny items at the gift shop. Great and yummy fun for the whole family. Oh, and don't forget to take your picture with the gigantic cow outside. ;-)

As always, loved the creamery. Unique look into what goes into making the t-shirts, ice cream, butter, and cheese. Love the personal connections they added to their exhibits. Gift ship is a decent size too, providing lots of different Cows and PEI merch.

The tours end at 8, but production ends at 4 so get to the store before 4 if you want the tour. Otherwise: staff is friendly, products are clever and attractive (and make great gifts!), and the ice cream is -of course- incredible. Highly recommend Wowie Cowie.

I expected a more intimate tour from what I had read - hairnets, etc but instead I had a walled off self-guided tour of a basically empty factory (except for two guys doing something with the screen printing equipment). Videos are ok, displays are ok. Ice cream is great and the store is full of nifty t-shirts. Soon got over... More

Just went with a friend and had PEI Apple Crisp & Pralenes and Cream combo. What a delight. They have the MOST amazing flavours, fresh made waffle cones -OMG Amazing!!!

It was a self-guided tour which means there was no tour guide to assist you. We watched as the staff prepared the machine to make the Cow's designs on the t-shirts. There are only certain days of the week that they make Cow's ice cream and the day that we were there wasn't one of them. Would have been interesting... More

I don't know if it is the best, but it is pretty close. Heavy on the cream and very creative with their flavors, this is one of the best if not the best ice cream I have had. The tour is not great but you will want a Cows break at least daily. The gift shop is fun with everything... More

This was a quick stop, but fun. There wasn't a whole lot to see, but it was something different. Our tour was self guided and we didn't pay any admission. There were some videos and information on the wall. The t- shirt printing was most interesting as we had never seen that before. The store is fun and the ice... More
