My wife and I made this a destination on one of our back road rides through Connecticut. We were not disappointed. The ice cream is fresh, flavorful and plentiful. The first time we went here I was not able to finish my Brownie Sundae. Two scoops of ice cream about a pint each! A huge brownie, several toppings, a couple... More

I went with a friend to get some ice cream and see the sunflower fields. The ice cream that I tried was Butterfinger, Carmel Turtle Swirl and Forbidden Silk Chocolate which were all very good but I thought for the amount of ice cream and the price was laugh able. My friend had the strawberry sundea and it was more... More

All of the ice cream is made with all natural ingredients and there are few flavors that are sugar free. This week Jul 23 -31 2016 is the Sunflowers for Wishes which is biggest fundraiser for Connecticut Make A Wish.

Title says it all! Try " Next to nowhere" in Exeter RI at the end of Rt 165. Ice is very good for a lot less $$$.

Not only do I have ice cream for dinner in Fort Myers FL, but I have ice cream for lunch at Button Woods. All homemade ice cream from Cotton Candy to good old Vanilla & Chocolate. Across from the field of sunflowers You can't miss it if your are up this way in Connecticut. My hometown.

Buttonwood Farm Ice Cream is known by locals for having the best homemade ice cream in town. The ice cream is very good, but expect long line and high prices. The best time to go is in July or the beginning of August to get a glimpse of the beautiful sunflower fields across the street while you sink your teeth... More

My husband and I used to go as regulars when we lived about 30 minutes away. They serve the best ice cream in the state. Now that we live over 90 minutes away, we look for reasons to go to Griswold just for the treat of having an ice cream cone 😃

I go here every time we come through the area. The choice of different ice cream is great. Too many sometimes. Taking a well deserved morning off I stopped in on a drive north past the casinos in eastern Connecticut. It was a hot day in May so I was surprised there was no line at the windows. I had... More
