Ice cream is to die for. Also a great farm store for getting locally grown produce. Combine that with being able to look at all of the animals and you have a great experience.

Best farm fresh ice cream in town, perhaps in all of Hartford county. Several flavors to choose from, chocolate mocha fudge and raspberry chocolate chip are my favorite. Several flavors to choose from. Only open in summer so get it while you can. Take all my guests there and its amazing every time.

I know a lot of places claim "the best" title, but it's difficult to get more "Norman Rockwell" than this family farm place on a summer afternoon with a line of freckled kids sitting outside licking their ice cream cones. You go to a walk-up window to order. No indoor counters or tables or chairs. Grab a lot of napkins... More

Tulmeadow Farm has some of the best ice cream you'll find anywhere. Delicious and creamy. All their chocolate chips are big, dark chocolate chunks. Try the house specialty Red Raspberry Chocolate chip. I also love the Chocolate Chocolate Chip, and Toasted Almond.

You have to try the red raspberry with chocolate chip which is the signature flavor. The coconut almond is awesome. Orange pineapple has arrived for those liking the tropical flavors.

I've lived down the road from Tulmeadow for almost my entire life. The ice cream here is amazing. I actually know the people who own the farm, and they hand-churn all of it. It's so good that when the ice cream stand is closed for the season, I get more of it from local grocery stores. Their raspberry chocolate chip... More

Best Ice Cream ever, a little bit expensive but worth price and calories. Try Peppermint Stick ice cream or anything coffee. We also bought many dozen ears of corn when it was available in summer.

Yes, the ice cream IS great and popular with ALL ages. I tested this premise by bringing a mid 90 year old friend for a cup recently. She agreed that it was some of the best ice cream that she has had in a long time! I have come to Tulmeadow for many years for their plants, and local produce.... More

They do a great job here producing some extremely savory and creamy ice cream. Hard to explain the taste but it is much richer than anything you get from a chain store like Ben & Jerry's (sorry guys). Great small town vibe waiting in line to get a cone or to get a tub to take home. Worth a drive... More
