This is the place to go if you want top-quality ice cream. The number of flavors is staggering, and the quality is top-notch. A “small” serving is two big scoops. As an added incentive, the servers are incredibly pleasant.

It is with great pleasure I recommend Ferris Acres. The selection of ice creams have never disappointed. The social gathering of locals is evident that they are well supported by the community. So good and a very pleasant way to have family time dessert.
