“Once a summer, right?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This place has stupendously sized servings of awesome ice cream, in a bucolic setting. Let's see, I think the "small" costs $3.95 and the more moderately sized, but still generous "kiddie" -- which is not listed on the board -- costs around $3. Bring your insulated container to bring home the leftovers?

“Giant ice creams.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Trust me, order the 'kiddie' and you'll still have trouble finishing it. Not the place to go if you are on a diet but the flavors are great and its a simple country pleasure to stop for a cone.

“Favorite ice cream in the states”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

I absolutely love this place. I live nearby, and we always go here during the summer. I'm so lucky to have such great ice cream near my house. I've been all around the country, and Kimball's Farm is still my favorite ice cream.

“Best around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Hands down the best ice cream in the area. It can get busy when the weather is nice, but the ice cream is more then worth the wait.

“Yummmmm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

My saddest autumn day is the one that Kimball's closes for the season. My brightest spring day is the one when they reopen. Very generous portions of super creamy, rich ice cream. Dozens of flavors to choose from, including nonfat frozen yogurt. Their maple walnut is to die for. They still serve traditional ice cream sodas. If you bring your dog be sure to ask for a doggy dish. It's not centrally located but Kimball's is always worth the drive.
