Love to get a scoop of fresh made ice cream in a waffle cone here with the kids. Always have fun checking out the animals and sometimes get to see milking in the late afternoon! Never disappointed!

Great ice cream and milk products. It is also a great place to tour and see how a dairy farm is run. Good experience for the kiddies!

Loved this farm. The ice cream was amazing. There is a "drive-thru" window but the shaded deck with chairs was the perfect spot to relax for a while and watch the cows. An added bonus were the friendly dog and cats that came to sit...More

This farm is an excellent place to take young children. My nephew loved it, but if you’re older then really the only draw is the ice cream. Very friendly staff, very pretty farm, very good ice cream.

I love ice cream and visit many "farm ice cream" businesses. This is the most educational and seemingly genuine one I have ever stopped at. You can really get the whole story (for kids and adults) that ice cream is made from milk and milk...More

Have not been there in a while, but haven't head anything. I can't imagine them moving since this is a working farm not just milk and ice cream.
