“SO FUN! Loved the animals and ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This place is fantastic- clean and well taken care of and you can tell they really care about their animals. The cows are seriously the cleanest cows I have ever seen. I had no qualms against petting them, even the ones in the pasture! They have cows of all ages, the babies were adorable. They have barn cats and peacocks and bull dogs wandering around (well the bull dogs more like sat around as they were too fat to do anything else lol), all which were friendly and didn't mind being pet. A bonus is the incredible ice cream - try the chocolate, SO GOOD! Creamy and delicious without being to rich. Definitely a must see!!

Only complaint - the bathroom, the ONE bathroom, is DISGUSTING. No toilet paper, filthy toilet, dirty sink, stuff all over the floor.....EW.

“Great for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

My husband was brought up on a dairy farm, so he wasn't too thrilled with the cows, but I enjoyed seeing them. Kitties and a dog roamed the area, and they were fun, too. Ice cream was good, and we bought some milk and eggs. I wish they'd offered more types of cheeses for sale. The area was clean and safe, and seemed to offer children an opportunity to see where milk comes from.

“The best flavored ice cream ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We make this a definite stop or stops on our Amish country itinerary. Skip lunch or even dinner and simply enjoy this delicious ice cream. This trip we even got to meet the new born and young calves. The ice cream will definitely add calories but what are vacations for? You can also purchase other dairy products here. Just GO and ENJOY!

“Best Ice Cream!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Their ice cream is the best that we have had: rich, creamy and oh so yummy! The establishment is absolutely spotless. You can eat your ice cream on the covered patio and pet the ever so friendly bulldogs while you do so. Or, you can walk down to see the calves with their big brown eggs and see the cows waiting to come in to be milked.
