Their homemade ice cream is great! Every time we have been there, we've tried a different flavor. The serving size you get is just right. All of the staff members are very sweet and offer you samples so that you can decide which one you like. Great family place.

What a great activity and located just not he outskirts of Fayetteville. This establishment conjures up images of days gone by. From the fields to pick strawberries to the facility where you can find fresh produce, it is a great experience and the grand kids loved it! The ice cream is a treat for everyone! We need more of these... More

It has VERY good home made ice cream! Eventhough it was hot, we enjoy our self guided tour. My girlfriend also bought some local honey there which was really good.

All of my children toured the farm- as kids at school and scouts. At the end of the $2 tour they would give you a small sample of local homemade vanilla ice cream. Soon people skipped the tour to get the ice cream. The family gave in and started a homemade ice cream shop. Imagine seeing a 5 gallon clear... More

We love to go get ice cream and then walk the farm. The animals are friendly and will come up to the fences to say hi. Our daughter loves it. Also, the paths to walk are pretty shaded so it doesn't get overwhelmingly hot. Their produce stand is also great. We enjoy picking out fresh fruits and veggies and chatting... More

Nice little farm to do the walking tour or just go for some homemade ice-cream. They also make the cones and some really good pound cake. You can also buy their beef from their cow's also very good better then you get at any grocery store in Fayetteville being from NY the closest butcher shop is in Religh, NC.

Considering they over use chems on their produce and are a open supporter of Monsanto, I'm good thanks! You want fruit that's just that FRUIT, check out: Carter Blueberry Farm and Douglas Strawberry Patch. I can attest to the amazing produce we buy from them. So juicy and sweet!
