My parents and grandparents have brought he here for decades! The only drawbacks is they only take cash and aren't open year. They always have a wide variety of ice cream flavors and their ice cream tastes better than anyplace in the area!

Delicious, smooth and creamy ice cream. So many flavors to choose from. Fairly fast service even on the busiest of warm summer evenings. Great picnic area to relax and eat your ice cream of choice.

If you're in Salem, CT during the summer months and crave the cool rich flavor of homemade ice cream, be sure to stop at Salem Valley Farms Ice Cream. Bribe the kids, bribe the husband and/or wife, treat yourself. Sure beats store-bought!

I love going there at night even though I run a ice cream company called Momma's Ice Cream there black raspberry yogurt is amazing and my husband loves the moose tracks or black cherry. Thank you for great times

We had just finished a 33 mile bike ride; and on a fall day this was the perfect end to a wonderful fall day. The ice cream is DELICIOUS; and likely so as it's 18% butter fat. Who cares as this is such a nice treat.

We wanted homemade frozen custard for dessert & we were delighted with the delicious flavor of the day that we chose. They have a wide variety of flavors--hard to choose! It is not cheap, but where is any good home made ice cream inexpensive? The shaded outdoor seating was a welcome break from the hot sun. Would definitely go there... More

Nice place! Plenty of variety, most importantly ice cream was delicious. Little snafu ordering and getting a single scoop of vanilla took forever. But will definitely go back!

After checking out the nearby Goodwin Trail and friend and I stopped for a treat. As usual the parking lot was packed. But the line moved very quickly and staff was very friendly. Ice cream was delicious!!!
