Friends who recently moved to the area took us to Hopkins Farm Creamery when we happened to drive by at an unusually quiet time when they weren't mobbed like normal. The experience made me somewhat nostalgic, as you don't see many operating dairy farms selling home made ice cream these days. They're on a road off the main drag, but... More

Delicious home made ice cream served in a take out style on a real working Dairy Farm. Ice cream is home made and very rich so consider that when you order.. Just a heads up some times the " farm smells" can be intense.

The icecream was just okay in my opinion, not bad but not the best. They do have alot of flavors though. Prices are fair, servings are good. The smell from the cows wasnt too bad, its a dairy farm so its expected. You can see the cows while you are eating your ice cream.

Did some reading on this location before we headed over to sample a few flavors. Arrived at Hopkins with only a few people ahead of us. Placing the order was fine. They took our money very quick. Once they had the money it was time to wait and wait and wait for the product. It was like waiting in line... More

I must say that the ice cream here is excellent however the last two times I stopped for some, I found a very long hair in it and threw it away. The servers should be wearing hairnets and using gloves. I stopped ordering cones and moved to cups when I noticed that the servers were not wearing gloves while handling... More

Great Ice Cream and Lots to look at! This is a farm and there are many cows.Some days the smell is overwhelming but you get used to it during your wait to taste many delicious flavors of freshly made ice cream. Biggest problem is too many flavors to choose from!

This is a farm that has diversified its income stream by selling ice cream to the public. It's off the beaten path but worth the trip.

Stopped by there today. No line no wait. As soon as we ordered the line kept growing. I had Strawberry Cheesecake. Actual cubes of cheesecake mixed in the strawberry ice cream. Loved visiting the cows as well. Play area and picnic tables available so all can sit and enjoy their sweet treats. Can't wait to try more flavors.
