Bedford Farms combines rich, creamy ice cream with great service. It's as good as any ice cream place in the area and better than most.

The staff here consists of exuberant young women, who clearly are having fun while doling out your ice cream. Moreover the ice cream here is very,very good. For some odd reason, New England as a region, consumes more ice cream than any other region of the USA, and I think that this place is part of that reason ! Oh…another... More

Bedford Farms has been in business since the late 1800's (a few years before I was born, so I can only attest to the quality of their products for the past 40 years) With three stores in the family (Concord, Bedford and Burlington) the products are always the same fine quality in each store. Excellent ice cream and frozen yogurt,... More

If you want to be a little piglet without ordering the large cone, order the small -- it's the largest "small" cone I've ever seen. In addition to the standard flavors you would expect, there are a lot of really interesting ones -- so many that it's hard to decide. They could save the staff a bit of time though... More

Bedford Farms has great creamy home-made tasting ice cream, & has been a reliable & fun place for decades. I unfortunately have developed a non-life threatening dairy allergy, so it would be nice if they had more sorbet options besides mango & raspberry- or even listed sorbet on their menu.

Stopped in here on a warm day. We were reluctant because the prices seemed a bit high, but got some ice cream anyway. We were pleasantly surprised to find some of the best ice cream we had ever had. We recommend the maple walnut and the monster mash.

Nice reward after a walkabout on a hot day. Ask for a spoon if you order a milkshake, stay with the homemade hard ice cream and don't order the vanilla soft serve - it's a bit grainy tasting

My boyfriend and I decided to grab a sweet treat while waiting for a train. I only had a few tastes of his ice cream and was rather disappointed to realize that was all I was going get as he had eaten it all! But what I did get was amazingly good.
