Amazing Ice Cream!

I am an admitted lover of ice cream. When visiting my aunt in Connecticut, she knew she had to take me here and I was NOT disappointed. The ice cream is fresh, creamy, and the flavors I tasted were spot on! I was also very impressed by the options. They have tons of standard, dairy ice cream, dairy... read more

Their homemade ice cream is THE best! A bunch of us gals come here Fridays after golf for 'our fix' and boy, is it good. Their ice cream is so creamy and tasty, and their small cones are a good size. I love their maple walnut and there's tons of nuts in it. I've seen people with sundaes the size... More

Salem Valley Farms is not close to home, and really not that close to anything. So it says something that we made the trip here to get the ice cream. We don't go often, but it is so good. They have a great assortment of flavors, I only wish I could have tried more of them!

We just went here for the first ice cream of the season, and were not disappointed! They have a huge variety of flavors, and all of them are so creamy and good! Not only that, you can get some to take home as well! I love their ice cream, it is all very good, that you can't go wrong with... More

When I used to live not too far from Salem, I used to come here every chance I got. Now that I live about an hour and a half away, I STILL go every chance I get because the ice cream is THAT good. I've never had ice cream anywhere near as good anywhere else. Simply put, their ice cream... More

Salem Valley Farms Ice Cream is, quite simply, AWESOME! It's a small outdoor ice cream shop where you will almost always find a lot of happy people eating ice cream! It has wonderful flavors (my husband's favorite is the Almond Joy, mine is cookie dough), we have never had any ice cream here that wasn't good!! It's a little off... More

The absolute best ice cream ever and we check out a lot of ice cream places! Fresh, local and generous servings. Although the line was long, the wait wasn't. Plenty of outdoor picnic seating.

We'd driven near this store several times but only stopped by with a school group. The ice cream is quite good with lot's of different flavors. Service was prompt considering the size of our party. It's a nice mid way point stop on the trip from Hartford area to the shore. We'll be back.
