it's simply the best ice cream in New England -- maybe even in the US -- in the best possible setting --- a live working farm: silos, cows, stonewalls, offset from road amidst a scene of green. I have been in line with people that traveled more than one hour after dinner to enjoy the creamiest ice cream you can... More

Order the kiddie size Rich's is generous with their scoops! The only downside is the line may be long and they don't take credit!

Our flavor of choice – toasted almond, the ice cream – rich and creamy with lots of ground almonds and almond chunks, the experience – memorable, consistent,... More

The very best ice cream! I can't get enough of the toasted almond. Have to stop here on our trips back to Connecticut!

A must-see every summer for locals! You know if the locals eat there- it must be good! Delicious, creamy, fresh ice cream in so many creative flavors! There is almost always a line so plan to wait for a spot to park & hang out for a bit. It will be worth every second! They also have the cows grazing... More

Rich Farms has the best ice cream I have ever had. It is super high quality, great flavors, large servings, and reasonable prices. There is usually a decent sized line, but it is worth the wait. They have recently expanded their parking area, which makes a visit to Rich Farms much more convenient than in the past. I have been... More

Great ice cream made right on a working dairy farm. Daily specials include tasty flavors. Excellent ice cream. Be prepared to stand in line - but the wait is worth it! Three scoops took care of dinner for the evening!

Amazing ice cream. Interesting flavors. I have to agree with other reviewers about the wait, but it is totally worth it.

This is the best ice cream on the planet!!! Been going to Rich's for years and they just keep getting more awesome!!! Make sure you get there early because they get VERY busy and you may have a long wait. But no matter how long you wait it is completely worth it!!!
