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.

Went here with my mother, my husband and my 17 year old daughter. We all loved every bite. Lots and lots of flavors available. They even have samplers if you can't decide. The portions are huge and very reasonably priced - especially for such high quality ice cream. We try to stop here every time we are in the area.

I consider myself quite the ice cream connoisseur and this is the best I've ever had. I am lucky enough to live within a 15 minute car ride, but I would definitely drive an hour to get there! Their Kahlua and cream, chocolate peanut butter cup, and mint chip are my favorites. I find myself making all sorts of excuses... More

If you're coming from the Hartford area towards New London, make a right at the end of RT 11 and there, on your left, you will find some of the best ice cream around. Rich and creamy and filled with joyful nuggets of goodness. If you want to find out how this ice cream is made, check out their web... More
