Strange title, but you'll soon understand why. Hopkins Farm Creamery is a working dairy farm. Live Cows. Create milk. product used in the process of making Ice Cream. OK, you don't get it yet. When you pull up to get Ice Cream the smell can be a little overwhelming. You'll find it's worth the wait (holding your breath) to order... More

Their many flavors of ice cream, sundaes, and killer milk shakes are bound to please everyone. It is fun to take kids to the Farm to see a real working dairy farm too.

New to Lewes and went by Hopkins Farm on the way to the furniture store. Stopped in and had a root beer float and a vanilla ice cream cone. Very good service and quality ice cream. We will be back for more.

Family and friends raved about the ICE CREAM. I ignored them. Until..... Yes, that is right the desire fir good Ice cream won in... More

We visit here often when down the beach. It's fun to bike here and watch the cows while waiting for our ice cream order. They make the ice cream fresh from the milk from their cows.

I always order chocolate walnut banana in a waffle cone. The waffle cone is good but more importantly, there is more ice cream in a single scoop waffle cone than a cup. It is so good! I'm certain that the other flavors are good, too. I just can't get enough of my first flavor. It's been years. I suspect that... More

I love the chocolate chip cookie dough in a waffle cone and my wife always picks two random flavors in one cone.... More

My husband and I, along with our wedding party, enjoyed tons of ice cream from the creamery when we stayed at the Covered Bridge Inn! All of the flavors were to-die-for delicious!

Since moving to the Lewes area, we've heard only good things about the ice cream at Hopkins Farm, and everyone has said that we have to try it. Finally we did, on a Thursday afternoon after the season was over, and we found that it lived up to its reputation. I mention the time because they were doing a strong... More
