Cute cow ride for kids. Picture perfect views and yummy ice cream. Sunflower sales benefit children's charity.

We were visiting Mystic and found this place right here on TripAdvisor and we were glad that we made the trip up to check it out! The ice cream was great. They had a LOT of flavors to choose from. We tried a few samples and decided on what ones we wanted. We were all happy that we took the time to drive up here and get some ice cream! If you are in the area it's worth the drive!

From Mystic our GPS took us along Lantern Hill Road / Long Pond. It was a beautiful drive.

Gorgeous never ending fields of sunflowers. Beautiful place to take photos. The icecream delicious (long lines but worth it. In August at the peak of blooming they raise funds for Make A Wish.

We tried this place twice, as a family we enjoy nice afternoon/evening rides through the area. We had heard so much about this place so we tried it. We tried it twice!!!

Honestly, the chocolate ice cream was flat! It lacked flavor... How can an ice cream parlor make it without a good chocolate?!?!?

We also dropped over $20 for two mediums and one large... Way over priced... Want good ice cream at a better price? Try Holy Cow in Hopkington near the town hall.
