This is some of the best ice cream I have ever had! I also buy other dairy products at Patches Creamery....just made a delicious batch of homemade buttermilk waffles last weekend with fresh buttermilk from the farm!

It is worth going out of your way to visit Patches Family Creamery!

We do get ice cream here - usually a half-gallon to go. Although, if you are not in a rush, it is nice to sit outside if the weather is nice to eat your ice cream.

But if all you ever get is ice cream, then you are missing out. We buy our milk, butter and occasionally cream here as well. I believe you can even get eggs here. It is somewhat less expensive than the grocery, and I am glad to support a local, family-run business.

If you are over 45, you might remember family dairy stores, fresh milk, and dairy products.
They went away.
But, now, one has returned.
Out-of-towners will need to search (or follow signs) to find this, but this is an authentic family dairy store.

This family run dairy operation is neat, clean and a pleasant surprise in the countryside of Lebanon County - right on the family farm property. There were goats across the driveway that were quite an attraction for young and old alike. They are not far from Lancaster and Hershey. It is worth the short drive for the ice cream which is made on site. The flavors we had were well balanced, the texture is smooth and rich and the price is very fair. Apparently the secret is out among the locals because the ample parking lot was busy on a Saturday afternoon. We also noticed license plates from out of the area so there are adventurous travelers who have discovered this gem.
