Huge portions (we had the kiddie size) and terrific selection of nice, creamy flavored. We had vanilla (excellent flavor), maple walnut (lots of nuts!), mint chip (perfect balance of mint and chips), and chocolate chunk pud'n (so chocolately!). Staff were fast and very helpful and polite.

Very much enjoyed the large selection of flavors and large portion sizes of ice cream served. Note there are a few outdoor benches, but no tables nor indoor seating. This is also a strictly ice-cream place - no burgers nor hotdogs, etc

Not one of those wimpy ice cream places that close when the weather turns cold! Fantastic selection of flavors including Strawberry in spring with real chunks of strawberry and peach in summer with big pieces of ripe peach. Portions are huge - I always get the Kiddie size, and it's more than enough. If you like ice cream, it's worth... More

So many flavors--just outrageously excellent. Don't visit Bedford without visiting Bedford Farms for ice cream in a cup or cone. Be careful with the cone because the serving size is far superior to the size of the cone. To ensure you get to eat every morsel of the ice cream flavor(S) you choose, get a cup! I guarantee you won't... More

The store is very popular. There is a very wide selection of ice creams. The 2-scoop cone was HUGE, so a 1-scoop cone might be all you need.

I make a point to visit Bedford Farms at least once a summer, esp. since it's not far from my job. As others have said, the portions are huge and the ice cream is wonderful. My favorite is the Cashew Caramel Turtle, followed by Oreo. I've brought my mother here when she's visited and she loves the Pistachio.

There's usually a crowd but the wait is short. You'll get giant portions of ice cream--even the kiddy size is huge. Their ice cream is one of the best around. I love anything chocolate and they have a lot of choices--with or without nuts, marshmallows, mint, chips, other flavors mixed in...never got a bad one. The Ginger always tastes like... More

If there's a crowd, stop anyway! The lines go quickly and the ice cream choices are excellent. Ginger and Coconut are my personal favorites.

We spent 5 days in the motel next door and we had to go to the "ice cream place" next every night before going to bed. The ice cream is homemade and so very smooth and creamy. The selection of flavors is extensive. Made a mistake the first night and ordered a large --BIG mistake, the serving was not large... More

BF is one of those glorious institutions. I've visited shops all over the world and their ice cream is in the top tier - just the right amount of richness. The scoop sizes are huge - going above a small is crazy! But the best part is their menu of original flavore a from the Green Monster, Chunky Chocolate Pudding... More
