Excellent Ice Cream!

Unfortunately closed for the season! When spring comes along, this is a must visit place. The ice cream is so good (voted number 1 for 2015 Worcester Magazine) and the portions are huge! Well worth stopping for!

Creamy, rich, fresh ice cream served right at the dairy. Not only is there a great selection of flavors, but you can get cups, cones, sundaes or ice cream sodas!

Incredibly fresh ice cream. Lots of great choices and everyone I have tried I have loved. I think German Chocolate Cake is my favorite. They are renovating right now but they manage to still serve people quickly. They have cute seating areas too, to relax and enjoy the ice cream.

This is local ice cream made in an old fashioned way. It is a seasonal business so check before driving to this location.. There is a wide range of flavors and... More

My family and I had been enjoying our time at the parlor, when a large group of high school students arrived, loud and disruptive, vandalizing toys meant for young children. After trying to, unsuccessfully, to wait "storm" out, we decided to leave. I reported the ongoing behavior to the owner, but he just shrugged it off, saying that "you could... More

one of the best ice cream stores in central MA. Unfortunately it is not open year round. Would highly recommend their bear claw flavor. They take only cash and sometimes the quantities of the ice cream fluctuate a lot.
