We stopped for a short visit (about an hour). We took the tour which was reasonably priced and included a free scoop of the featured ice cream. The lines to buy a scoop of ice cream we really long, so we skipped it. The ice cream grave yard was fun to visit briefly. The staff are very friendly.

This is the original ice cream factory where it all began for the Ben and Jerry ice cream brand. Surrounded by grazing cows on open land, I guess its the milk to make their famous rich ice cream. The factory tour is well worth the visit!

What a huge let down! We paid $4 each and, as our 2 kids are over 12 and are therefore classed as adults, we paid $16. We hung around for 15 minutes for the tour to start (there is nowhere to wait other than the gift shop. Nice try but we weren't about to pay the ridiculous prices for B&J's... More

As we eat Ben & Jerry's at home when we have Domino's pizza delivered as our desert we thought this is a place we have to visit to see how it is made? How wrong was we, we paid the tour price which is not cheap and wait about in the gift shop to be called by the guide? Another... More

I hate to be a big giant party pooper raining on everyone's ice cream parade but this was just oooooook at best. I forget how much the "tour" is but anything other than free isn't worth it. The tour consisted of nothing. A man comes out greets everyone very nicely, takes the group upstairs to view the factory line, and... More

Of course we all know the Ice Cream! It was nice, even on a cold day. The factory is the original I believe. I learned the history behind the start of Ben & Jerry's. We sampled some tasty ice-cream as well. Highly recommend.

Come with time to relax and explore all the Ben & Jerry's has on the hill. Sign up for a tour of the factory- if there is a wait, go to the flavor graveyard, get your face painted, make spin art to take home and eat some ice cream! Fun way to spend some time with the family!! We loved... More

Took the Ben and Jerry's factory tour this week and had a blast. $4 for adults, kids 12 and under are free. Tour last for about 30 minutes. You see a brief movie and then you get to see where they produce everything. They were suppose to be producing, but unfortunately they decided to clean their equipment instead, so we... More

A good way to spend an hour or so on a freezing cold day in VT. The tour was good (brief, about 30 min.)It's free for kids and cheap for adults. Staff was really friendly. The kids enjoyed it. The ice cream was AWESOME!!!
