If you've gotta eat ice cream, eat it fresh and right at the farm! Our favorite flavor is ginger. Hand packed cones and pints. Great place!!

You can't beat Cook Farm for some of the best homemade ice cream in a family friendly farm setting. So many flavors to chose from, you will have trouble picking just one. Kids and adults alike can walk around the farm and pet the cows. Lots of seating inside, but some of the nicest days are when grab your ice... More

This was one of our 9 year olds absolute favorite stops as we drove through New England visiting colleges. You can feed and pet the baby cows and he just couldn't get enough. The ice cream is creamy and delicious with a lot of interesting flavors to choose from. So glad that we stopped here and would love to go... More

Our family was in town visiting colleges and we rewarded ourselves after two college tours with ice cream cones at Cook Farm. What a treat! We all loved the flavors and the atmosphere - the cows were right there so the ice cream could not be fresher.......peaceful setting.

After reading the reviews on here, I wanted to take the drive out to the farm and was not disappointed. I only wish I had had time to sample more flavors; so many looked good and intriguing, like the sweet cream one. I passed on the "Hadley Grass" (asparagus ice cream!) and went for the maple bacon. I'm not really... More

We stumbled upon cook farm on our way to the Eric Carle museum (4 min away)! My daughter loved visiting the cows. The seating inside takes you back to another time!

The smell of cows keeps me from this place. I have gone in and I think this is a good place but from the car to the door is basically cow poop smell that never goes away. I cannot understand how people want to go to this place under the circumstances. If not in this location I would give it... More

The ice cream is absolutely YUMMY! I love the "on the Farm" atmosphere and all the aromas that come with it. Great place to take the your kids, or grandkids, or nieces/nephews for a break away from the maddening crowd just a mile away at the shops and getting up close and personal with the animals (farm animals that is).

Straight from the cow! Definitely an experience to eat ice cream as the sun goes down and watch the cows and calves frolic.
