My hub and I love good ice cream and this was fabulous! He had the Milky Way on a waffle cone, I had the white river birch also on a waffle cone. We kept talking about how good it was the whole time we were eating!

it took a little work to find this place (it's off the beaten path for tourist sites) but well worth it. Generous portions and delicious ice cream.

All our 4 kids really enjoyed the delicious ice cream. I had one with peanut butter and it was really great. Charming building and nice staff.

Like to visit as ice cream is always good. Be prepared to wait during summer but it is worth it. After purchase you can go and sit by the rail tracks and eat your ice cream. It is not everyday you can do this!!

My first time here on a very warm Friday night - it was good. Not the best I've ever had, but decent. I'm an ice cream snob though. For over $4 a scoop I expect really great ice cream. These were generous portions and best of all service was quick. The girls behind the counter know what they are doing.... More

I was returning from Boston and stop in to use the restroom. I was happy to see that they sold milkshakes when I was done. Bought a chocolate shake and wasn't disappointed. Just writing this review now makes me want to have another one.

When our foreign former au pairs come back to visit, this is the first place they ask to go. I'm a big fan of Muddy River (firm peanut butter swirled through rich chocolate ice cream) and also of their Orange-Pineapple, but everyone I know has their own favorite flavor. The frozen yogurt is also good. I have not tried the... More

We've enjoyed Bedford Farms for years. The flavors of regular ice cream are so great, I only just tried their soft serve for the first time this month (we've been customers for over a decade). It was awesome as well. Note to the wise: the kiddie size is more than enough for most ice cream lovers.

Bedford farms ice cream stand in Bedford is our go to,for specialflavors and rich creamy ice cream. But their all year store in Concord is only 1/2 as good. They do not have all the extra flavors...cherry bomb, frozen pudding, maple walnut, ginger etc. somthe best bet is in Bedford on toute 225.

Nice little ice cream shop by the rail depot. The sweet and salty was a little too sweet, but it was still a good thing on a hot day. The portions are too large though. You'll need to bring a friend to have anything larger than a small.
