just ice cream, only ice cream, great ice cream.

located right next to the concord train station, this small ice cream shop has great ice cream - rich, thick, creamy and fat-free (hah). local purveyor of top quality ice cream and fresh waffle cones. takeout frozen options or fresh served cones and shakes.

Portions were generous and prices good. I am giving a 3 star for one reason- confusing. They have names of ice cream flavors but no descriptions. If you are not a local you will prob get tired of asking. Look on menu on trip advisor here before you go in for descriptions.

The ice cream was good. The service was ok. But when we were done we asked for water and the woman at the counter said that we would have to pay 1.25$ for water from the tap

I have been taste testing ice creams in Eastern, MA. Top of the list so far is Toscanini's. Then JP Licks and Christina's tie for second. I have a refined palate and look for high butterfat content as well as an accurate portrayal of the flavor. Last night I tried a kid-sized cookie dough. The portion was large - what... More

I had stopped having ice cream years ago, opting for the non-dairy alternative. A friend of mine suggested Bedford Farms, but it still took me about a year to get there. But once I did...omg, it is THE BEST tasting ice cream ever! My kids love it too and want to go there even when it's (clearly!) too cold to... More

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
