Great little HOMEMADE ice cream store on Franklin Street (main drag in New Freedom) about a block or so off the Heritage Trail (rail to trail). It is a block down from the railroad station in New Freedom (mile 1.5 or so on the trail. The ice cream was fresh, diverse flavors, substantial portions reasonably priced. Good service from friendly staff. If you visit PA or walk/bike the Heritage Trail or the North Central Trail in MD this is the place to stop for a treat.
CAUTION it is only open from about St. Patrick's Day until near the end of September (23rd this year).

What a great place!! I was riding my bike on the rail trail and found this wonderful place. It has the best homemade ice cream and most wonderful snowballs. It's very old fashioned and the store is actually an old movie theatre. The little town of New Freedom is very cute and now has a steam train one can ride. Actually, I will go back just to get a snowball with ice cream on the bottom from Bonkey's, my new favorite place.

Ice cream and Snowballs in any flavor or combination you can think of. And the serving sizes are above average. They even had Bacon Flavored Ice Cream last summer! You know spring is here when Bonkies opens for the season. No seating and you might have to stand in line but it is worth it. The shop is in an old movie theater, really cool.
