Gillis Hill Farm is just awesome. I have gone to this place for a few years now and I can honestly say that I've only had one bad experience, and that was when I drove into the ditch out front trying to get there before the bakery closed for the season. I was in dire need of a one of... More

A very nice farm. We enjoy the homemade ice cream. Love the lake view and the few animals they have. It's was a very relaxing and all you can hear is the nature. Bonfire and picnic area next to the lake. They also sale few grains & hay. Overall a very nice place.

Truly a jewel of a place out in the country! Ice cream shop is in an approx 100 yr old house complete w/ artifacts used in the 1800's and a sitting porch for relaxing w/ a delicious ice cream. Afterwards, there's a petting area of goats, pigs & horses in a country setting that's much the same it was originally... More

Just the ticket for a warm, sunny day! Lovely ice cream shop, just a few flavors but all are yummy. Cones are large and delicious. For 7 people the price was only $25 (a couple of us had cups of ice cream, the others, cones.) Spend some time rocking in the chairs on the porch or wandering around the farm... More

The best homemade ice cream around! My children and grandchildren love this place. We have know the Gillis family for a long time and know that they are a great family, they are also honest business people. The location is very easy to find. You will be pleasantly amazed at the wonderful produce thats always in season. The Marlowe's

The first time we went to Gillis Hil, we took the kids to get homemade ice cream. It was delicious! We have also went to the strawberry patch and picked our own. We also picked our pumpkins out there. The kids love it! Everytime we drive by, they want us to stop.

I used to live right down the street from this farm and we went there just about every Sunday! They have homemade ice cream and you are welcome to sit in a rocking chair on their front porch and enjoy it! They also have pony rides on Sundays. I believe you can tour the farm as well, though I've never... More

A great little known attraction in south west Fayetteville. The best place to share a homemade ice cream while sitting on rocking chairs on their porch or strolling around the grounds of an operating farm. Nice and quite and away from the noise of the city. Ice cream store closed on Sundays.
