Great place to indulge in some rich, creamy ice cream. The raspberry ice cream was excellent!!! Additionally, you can purchase fresh milk, including chocolate milk...yummy!! Other treats available as well. Nice drive in the country. The petting zoo is a bonus attraction with the kids. Lots of cute animals, goats, llamas, miniature ponys, etc.

We try to visit Patch's whenever we can. It is located on beautiful farmland on the outskirts of Lebanon. The owners have really made a nice area for kids to play and my 6 y.o. loved playing on the small playground area the last time we were there. The country store is very clean and they offer a variety of... More

What a delightful place to go and have the best Milkshake and ice cream! There was an outside picnic table to enjoy the delicious treats and little area that the children can see some goats and small farm animals. The store had other farm items you can purchase if you are looking for homemade.

Homemade ice cream in a country setting. Very nice place, quality of the ice cream is good as is the price, and enough flavors to satisfy everyone.

This is some of the best ice cream I have ever had! I also buy other dairy products at Patches Creamery....just made a delicious batch of homemade buttermilk waffles last weekend with fresh buttermilk from the farm! It is worth going out of your way to visit Patches Family Creamery!

We do get ice cream here - usually a half-gallon to go. Although, if you are not in a rush, it is nice to sit outside if the weather is nice to eat your ice cream. But if all you ever get is ice cream, then you are missing out. We buy our milk, butter and occasionally cream here as... More

If you are over 45, you might remember family dairy stores, fresh milk, and dairy products. They went away. But, now, one has returned. Out-of-towners will need to search (or follow signs) to find this, but this is an authentic family dairy store.

This family run dairy operation is neat, clean and a pleasant surprise in the countryside of Lebanon County - right on the family farm property. There were goats across the driveway that were quite an attraction for young and old alike. They are not far from Lancaster and Hershey. It is worth the short drive for the ice cream which... More
