Want farm fresh milk? Buy direct from the farm. Patches has their own processing plant right on the premises. And they make fantastic ice cream. It is a family run business. Even the kids get involved. Love to sit and watch the animals too.

This is a wonderful place to visit with a family. The ice cream is home made and delicious. The cones are very full. There are animals across the drive , goats, llamas, etc. Food can be purchased to feed them. You can sit indoors in the air conditioning or relax on the patio and just watch the animals. Several other... More

They make the best ice cream. Whatever the fruit is available, you can be sure they have that flavor ice cream. Vey clean. You can sit outside and watch the farm animals as well. Very well hidden secret place to go. They are open for fresh milk, but ice cream season is limited.

Patches Family Creamery is a wonderful family run business. Their dairy products are wholesome and natural and with that naturalness comes the flavors we remember as children. We remember sitting on our grandparents porches waiting for the homemade ice creams and butter to be made while listening to the farm animals calling us for treats. At Patches Family Creamery you...

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.
