I'm definitely not agreeing with the reviewer that said there is not alot to do. My kids who generally rush to see things then rush out stayed for three hours. You can create your ice cream, create packaging for the ice cream, record a commercial, play in a ball pit, eat all the ice cream you want and many other... More

With some time to kill on a Sunday, we decided to try the Turkey Hill Experience. Yes, they mean unlimited samples. They gave decent sized scoops but we were still not discouraged from going up and getting more. We learned about the history of Turkey Hill as well as how ice cream is made. It's very interactive which is good... More

Turkey Hill is a fun place to visit to learn about how ice cream is made. They have lots of hands on activities to make learning fun. You can milk a (fake) cow, play video games, and children under 6 can play in the ball pit. The taste lab is a must. In the taste lab you are able to... More

A interesting place to bring the kids. There's a self guided tour which gives you the history of the area and the family owned business. You can get free samples of Turkey Hill ice cream and ice tea. You can also design your own flavor ice cream and for an extra fee have it mixed and packaged for you. There's... More

I was in the area on a business trip and was looking for something to do on a cold snowy Sunday in January. Not much is open. For less than $10, I enjoyed some really good ice cream and learned about Turkey Hill and a little about the community. Most of the activities are geared towards kids but I enjoyed... More

My wife and I went here on a whim as we've passed it many times going from Baltimore to "Amish Country" in Intercourse, PA. We do not have any kids but love Turkey Hill Ice Cream. The taste lab was sold out when we got there in the early afternoon but we still had a really good time touring everything.... More
