My family refers to this creamery as the "stinky ice cream" farm. The cows are right there which is kind of fun but their one byproduct is especially stinky on a hot summer evening. It is sort of a sweet pain experience. Lots of flavors. The butter pecan actually has real pecans in it! Worth the drive.

Great ice cream and lots of choices, just don't get hung up on the smell.....the cows are right there! ......and you can even pet them. There's usually a long line, but the kids working there are terrific and the system for ordering and pick up works well....ENJOY!

We stopped here after a day of exploring and enjoyed some really tasty ice cream- this was my favorite of the ice cream shops we went to in the area. It doesn't get more farm to table than this! I had the apple pie ice cream which was delicious, and a single scoop goes a very, very long way. Don't... More

We took two days this week to see if the Lewes/Rehoboth area was a place we could retire to. We had been in the off season but needed to see if we could deal with the craziness during peak season. We stumbled onto this gem by virtue of staying at a wonderful B&B owned by the sister. Nothing fancy here.... More

My husband and I really wanted to try this place out after reading the amazing reviews. But, even though the ice cream was great, I must say that the service isn't. They have some amazing flavors - but can you taste before picking what you want? NO. There is no room for that. You place your order at a small... More

Off of rte 1 & 9 the ice cream is homemade and the best I have ever tasted. The cows reside right there, you can't get any fresher than this place!

The staff is very slow at rush hours, but the ice cream is worth the wait! Be sure to visit the creamery when the wind is blowing the cow stink away though (unless you are part of the people who think that's the point). However, it seems like they have been adding water to the ice cream since last year... More

I have been there at least ten times while vacationing in the area, but never again. It takes just a few minutes to order, but then 30-45 minutes to get your ice cream. After waiting 45 minutes I was told they were out of the flavor I ordered. The pineapple sherbet is the reason I go there, and to wait... More
