“favorite ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Chocolate... or butter crunch?
Local dairy, local milk, local cows. this is my absolute favorite ice cream, anywhere. A small dish (which is probably all you'll be able to eat) will be about two bucks. You can also find their milk, butter, and ice cream in stores in the area, and they're fabulous, too.
Try the butter crunch ice cream. Chocolate is also spectacular. Banana is outstanding if you can find it. There are also Houlton Farms dairy bars in Presque Isle and Houlton. A friend and I tried to hit all of them in one day once... I challenge you to do the same.

“Best there is!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Houlton Farms Dairy has hands down THE best ice cream there is. When going there, I either order just a small vanilla cone, an awful awful which is a very thick milkshake topped with more ice cream (you need a spoon!) or a brownie ala mode but made my special way.....hard chocolate ice cream, brownie and just hot fudge (extra hot fudge!) and that's it.....sooo yummy! No matter what you order, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

“Awesome Ice Cream!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

If you're looking for an ice cold treat to beat the summer heat, this is ABSOLUTELY the place to go! It's so good that they have a spot at the food court in the mall (open year round) as well as their outdoor counter across from Wal-Mart. You will NOT be disappointed.

“A must visit for ice cream lovers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

20 flavors of regular ice cream and also many soft serve flavors.

We had milkshakes... red raspberry and chocolate/peanut butter; both excellent and inexpensive by comparison... only $3 each!

Many specialties such as sundaes atop a milkshake.
