Since I live in Maine now and don't get out to the Keene area often, I buy their ice cream by the pint at my local grocery store. I just bought their mocha chip and 'real maple cream' flavors, and they're excellent, especially the maple....It's hard to find maple ice cream made with real maple, never mind without the walnuts. I do miss going to their ice cream stand, though -- maybe on our next foliage trip!More

On Friday I drove more than an hour to get some of the always excellent ice cream. When I got there there were a half dozen people in line, ALL wearing masks and staying apart. More came as I got in line, all masked. Good...so far! Then I discovered the young woman serving was NOT wearing a mask and she was handling both food and money...no sign of hand sanitation either. Walpole may not be requiring masks, but they remain highly recommended by health experts and governments as the Covid pandemic continues to spread. Since I'm elderly, some health issues, I do not take foolish chances, so I did not place my order, got back in my car, and drove the hour plus back home. Two and half hours and 3 gallons of gas, wasted. I contacted their e-mail and was disappointed they didn't bother to reply, so I decided to post a review after all.More

This is perhaps the best ice cream in NH and some of the best anywhere. It's made right there and is both rich and creamy. While they only have a couple of dozen flavors, unlike some places with 70, 80, 90, their ice cream is...almost perfect. With fresh cream (farm is only three miles away and made into ice cream the same day it's delivered), and local and natural ingredients, this is about as good as it gets. We've been there several times over the years, and today's visit was the best yet. I decided to try their hot fudge sundae, instead of the usual cone. I did the "one scoop" (I can't even imaging the three) and, while a bit more costly than other places around the area, it was huge and the best hot fudge sundae I've ever had. Today I tried their coffee and cookies flavor, and I strongly recommend it for anyone who likes coffee flavor. It wasn't too strong, but definitely could taste the premium coffee flavor.More

I have had this ice cream a few times and I don't find it very interesting. It's not very dense, rich, or flavorful and it's not cheap either. There isn't a lot of cookie dough in the cookie dough flavor and I have experienced ice...crystals from a pint that was right from the factory! There is much better ice cream to be had. I in fact find Ben and Jerry's to be much richer and denser (and cheaper). Incidentally I have seen the farm where they get their milk from and it is scary looking and doesn't look well maintained.More

Stopped to top off our dinner with homemade ice cream dessert! I got the Udderly delicious, a coconut base with chocolate and almond chunks! Very yummy!

I always stop here when in the area. Their ice cream is some of the best I've ever had. The quality is superb and the flavors are outstanding. My favorites are the sweet cream (hard to find anywhere else), Tahitian vanilla, and chocolate. Their ice...cream can also be found by the pint in local grocery stores and farm stands, but there's nothing like getting it from the Walpole Creamery. (There's also a creamery in Keene).More

In a land long-ago, and faraway, there were many local ice cream stands. Nowadays? Not so much. Many places buy their ice cream, in bulk, from a few major suppliers. The Walpole Creamery is different. The ice cream was deliciously fresh and subtlety different. The...ice cream was truly creamy and not excessively sweet. To my taste, it was exceptional, homemade, ice cream! Highly recommended.More

Hot humid day today. Stood in line for 20 minutes before I gave up. Hope you're not expecting ice cream in a reasonable amount of time. They've only got 2 people working on a Summer Saturday afternoon.

Very good ice cream. We arrived just before they closed and had some very good ice cream. Very creamy and fresh.

My family has gad ice cream here as the store has changed hands over the years. The quality is really good now, and I would recommend getting a cone here
