Speaking of Ice Cream...

I am on a mission this season to try more fresh off the farm ice cream. I grew up in the Peaceful Meadows area and love the fresh rich taste of homemade ice cream. So, I'm looking for places to try not only in Mass., but those that might make a nice one day (half day) road trip within N.E.

I know there used to be a great place somewhere near the Canton area and there is a place Sam Allis just wrote about not too long ago which I can find on-line.

Looking for other suggestions, thanks.

      Boston Beanstalk Coffee Co. on Salem Street in the North End sells Richardson's.

        I'll second Kimball's! I make sure we get there at least once a year (a bit out of the way for me, but definitely worth it!)

      2. In the Canton area, I think you're thinking of Crescent Ridge Dairy, on Bay Road in Sharon, just over the Canton line.

          1. Rota Srings farm in Sterling. Try the Indian Pudding.
            Lookout Fram for gelato and sorbet. Have the new owners kept up the quality?

            1. Erikson's Dairy on Rte. 117, Maynard, Ma. is open for their 70th season, yippee!
