Owner description: For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of – especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores – nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.

The tour is inexpensive and begins with an informative video about how the company was started followed by a tour of the factory then free samples. Tour takes ~30minutes. The best part was the free sample. They also have a good gift shop with some cute souvenirs and ice cream stand if the sample wasn't enough. Our tour consisted of some obnoxious people which may have affected my enjoyment. It was good to do, once.

Very interesting place to visit.Tour of factory not great value for money but you do get a small sample of ice cream that is being made that day.Spotless restrooms and usual gift shop.You can purchase any of their flavours on site.

Tour is $4. No production on weekends. I didn't get to see them making ice cream which would have been a lot more interesting. Film at the beginning highlights how responsible the company is with resources and charitable giving. Good size ice cream sample at the end. Tour is 25-30 minutes tops. If you want to look at discontinued flavors, there is is a funny flavor graveyard in the back that they really don't show you. Worth seeing if you are a fan of the ice cream.
