Finger Lickin' Good

Ice cream...many flavors...many sizes...all very delicious. Friendly high school students scoop it out. Reasonable prices. Worth a visit ...especially in the summer.

Bedford Farms has a great selection of flavors, some pretty unique. The ice cream is OK by New England standards. Kimball's Farm down the road in Carlisle has much better ice cream, but it can get very crowded and isn't open all year. We go to Bedford Farms when Kimball's is closed for the winter.

We go here even in the winter, the ice cream is that good. The portions are large, even a small is large, so we get the kiddy cone which is just right. Bedford Farms makes their own, and the ice cream pie is a favorite for grandchildren's birthdays.

This place is completely underrated.. It's a hidden little gem with delicious flavors... And hug portions! A small is really a double-scoop, so be prepared... Highly recommended

Good ice cream but not enough lighter fare choices. Staff is prompt, friendly, and good at their job.

Whenever I visited Concord, I used to visit Bedford's rural location. Now that it's closed, I took a chance and risked the tourist traffic to see their in-town operation. Aside from an occasional chance to watch a passing railroad train, this location is no where near as scenic as the original, but the ice cream is still delicious and the... More

We used Trip Advisor to find this place while visiting Minute Man National Park. They have great ice cream, both hard and soft. I tried the Green Monster which was mint with fudge and brownie. The kids size is more than enough and it hit the spot. This was a great place after a long day walking around the park.

I've heard a lot about Massachusetts ice cream stands being a big thing, and now I know that they are also talking about the portions! For about $4 I had a "small" ice cream that in reality was the size of a typical double-scoop. I had forgotten the recommendation given to me before I went to get the kiddie size.... More

The place is not big on ambience and seemed to be pretty much run by teenagers, but the ice cream was plentiful and delicious. Kids size is plenty big for most people! I got monster mash--pumpkin with Oreos and chocolate. Very delicious. I would definitely go again for a quick treat.

Its hard to choose between this and the other great ice cream shop in West Concord --both winners--but Bedford Farms frozen yogurt is unbeatably delicious. Big portions. Atmosphere is somewhere between neighborhood folksy and needs charm. A few tables inside, 2 benches in the parking lot, seating is nothing special.I like the board listing staffers favorite combinations. A bit expensive... More
