“An ice cream dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

This is an awesome place to stop with the kids (or without!) on you was back from the beaches. The ice cream is absolutely delicious! You can't go wrong and their prices are very reasonable. And don't forget to go and say thanks to the cows whose generosity made your tasty treat possible!

“Mmmmmmmmm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

A good stop to make on the way home from the beach! We enjoyed delicious, reasonably-priced, farm made ice cream at a picnic table in the shade. I had the peaches and cream, which had the delicate flavor of and small pieces of real peach (not some over-flavored, orange-colored chemical taste). My friend's strawberry cheesecake scoop was gone before I could even get much of a look at it. He assures me that it was delicious and also had "real" -v- manufactured flavors. The cows were in the loafing barn next to the pick-up windows, and we enjoyed seeing them as well. Lovely!

“Why bother?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Have you ever eaten ice cream and thought the experience would be enriched by swatting away zillions of flies and smelling cow poo? Then this place is for you! The ice cream is very good, but honestly, how hard is it to find good ice cream? Right, it's not that hard. So why would you drive way out of the way on crowded roads to eat it at a farm? The people are nice, the prices are good,there's a little gazebo to sit and a small playground for kids. But, it's a smelly, smelly farm. Our clothes stank for hours afterwards.

“Ice cream heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Don't worry about the lines, it is worth the wait. The ice cream is so good. Check out the baby cows in the stalls to the right of windows.

“The best ice cream on the planet earth.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

We love it. We go there all the time. It's on the actual farm so depending on the wind direction, prepare for the oh-so real smell. We love seeing the cows and the baby calves. They also have a large play area for the kids.
