ICE CREAM!!

Great place well off the beaten path. You will definitely need a GPS to get there. We went on a Thursday and the line was long but it moved fairly quickly. My son loved seeing the cows and getting up real close to them. I can vouch that the following flavors are excellent - Strawberry... read more

Ice Cream is a bit pricey but worth it! I had the Country Breakfast which was Maple ice Cream with tons of bacon bits. So good! My husband had a milkshake and he said it was up there with the best of them.

Homemade goodness through and through. If ice cream were graded like meat, this would be prime. It's dense and flavorful, unlike any other ice cream I remember tasting. I had the white chocolate and cherry vanilla together in a hot fudge sundae like no other. The whipped cream they top the sundaes with is whipped in house, no nitrous oxide... More

This creamery is as old-fashioned as it gets with interesting homemade ice cream flavors galore. The strawberry cheesecake, maple walnut, p nutty, jungle George, and bubble gum are just a few of the more flavorful varieties which change often. Pumpkin cheesecake yogurt just came in for autumn. This is a must stop ice cream shop in southern CT. This farm... More

My 11 year old and his friend titled this review -- they felt the 45 minute wait (even though it was an on-and-off rainy day) was worth it for the huge cones of delicious ice cream. I had the sunflower ice cream which was really good. Great photo ops by the sunflower field but be aware that the best view... More

My stepfather took my family and me to this place for ice cream. I am glad that he did because this place can make awesome ice cream. This place makes many different flavors that you WILL not see anywhere else. The best part is that everything is made fresh and handmade. I ordered blueberry ice cream with real Maine blueberries...

The line gets VERY long on the weekends, but they have lots of cashier windows so the line moves quickly. The ice cream is delicious, especially their homemade whipped cream. Make sure to take a walk around the sunflower fields. Downside is the price - it's rather expensive for ice cream!

Just a mile or so from 138 to RI and so worth it. Huge ice cream cones, each flavor better than the next and gorgeous views to gaze on while enjoying this home grown treat. I had Blueberry icecream in a sugar cone. Felt transported to a Maine wild blueberry patch. Pistachio was a 5 star treat and was told... More

We've been going here for years. Great ice cream, nice country atmosphere but $9.53 for a two scoop sundae!? I don't mind paying for quality but these people have lost their minds.
