They make many unique ice cream flavors that are fun to try and they let you sample them. Limited hours but worth trying their rich ice cream.

Sit and watch the ducks, goats, mule, pony and all the other barnyard animals in this farm setting. Blissfully peaceful. First Saturday of each summer month enjoy the cruise night of all the old classics. Rudy the dog will run and chase... More

The ice cream is wonderful, and the setting is really an old schoolhouse. The owner is a very personable teacher herself. There are several animals in nice fenced areas for children to see, and they have an antique car cruise-in on Saturday nights. Enjoy a nice ride in the country and have a special treat.
