Ipswich ice cream
stand opens; spring officially begins!
Children eating ice
cream on the tailgate of the phony wood paneled Ford LTD station
wagon has given way 20 years later to the same scenario with,
say, the Honda CRV, but the theme remains eternal: families have
always been magnetized to White Farms Homemade Ice Cream.
Known as the place
with "the cow on the roof," White Farms has been delighting
families since 1953. There's really nothing quite like eating
homemade ice cream on a White Farms picnic bench under the stars.
Dad listens to the Red Sox game on the nearby car radio. Mom
loves the pastoral setting that calms the children. The children
marvel at the animal farm. They all love the ice cream.
Located on a quiet
part of Ipswich on scenic Route 133 on the North Shore in Massachusetts,
White Farms has always been a family tradition, especially after
a long day at the stunning Crane's Beach or a day by the water
and shops in the toy-like village of Newburyport. The ice cream
remains marvelous, especially the tart key lime pie, a double
chocolate which is more like triple chocolate, and a very pungent
ginger ice cream. Other wonderful flavors include red raspberry
chip, cherry vanilla, coffee oreo, fudge ripple and chocolate
peanut butter cup. White Farms also offers soft serve ice cream.
We recommend trying the tasty blueberry and lemon.
For those who would
rather have food before dessert, Whites serves up quite satisfying
hamburger, hot dog and chicken plates.
White Farms remains
a timeless New England classic ice cream stand in one of the
more beautiful areas of the state. We strongly recommend making
White Farms a part of your New England vacation.
