For what I expected, it was ok. Nothing spectacular to see as far as I could tell. I felt a little like I was intruding on someone's private property, so we didn't explore much. No signs or anything to direct us. GREAT ice-cream though. In alone was worth the nice ride through the farmland.

We stopped off here on our way to Lancaster for a snack. It is only a few minutes outside of the Lancaster attractions, and is a nice scenic ride through farm country. The kids had a blast here. The ice cream was delicious and reasonable (I recommend getting a waffle cone!). And the kids enjoyed checking out the cows, calves... More

Loved Lapp Family Farm. They have fresh ice cream and you can watch them roll fresh waffle cones. As you step outside the ice cream shop, you may run into a cat, dog or peacock walking around freely. We got some great pictures with the animals.

My friends used to be the milkers for Lapp Valley so I have been many times and I never get tired of it!! Butter Brickle is my favorite. Milk, butter, and eggs are sold here as well!

Yes! I want to holler it out that this place has THE BEST ice cream made right there in the barn from the cows across the drive in the other areas! There are many flavors to pick from to put on to a waffle cone that they make right there. There are a few seats inside for colder weather as... More

Their ice cream is the best. Made on the premises, its the best. They also have eggs, milk, butter and plenty of animals to visit.

Everyone loved their ice cream! I highly recommend the coffee ice cream in a homemade waffle cone! Beautiful location, fun looking at the animals. Worth the drive! Establishment is clean, staff is very friendly!

Eat your homemade, fresh waffle cone and ice cream on the farm. Drive up service available, however, I prefer eating it on the patio or on the stone wall by the barn. Animals and such are in sight...and it's a friendly family place.
