This has been a favorite since childhood and a “must visit” during our summers in Salem. It is very child friendly. There can be long lines but the staff is super efficient. There are so many flavors!

Hands down the best ice cream in the state of Connecticut. The lemon sorbet is clean and zesty. The chocolate chip ice cream has chunks of chocolate! The milkshakes are creamy and divine. Expensive? Yes but worth every penny and the drive there.

Salem Valley Farms has the best ice cream. They use fresh ingredients and if you get a fruit flavor it will have chunks of fruit in it. I've been coming here for 28 years!
