We enjoyed several favors of the homemade ice creams, coconut almond was outstanding. Service was very good. We took home cheddar cheese which is smooth and has a wonderful fresh taste

Mercer's ice cream located in Boonville NY has always been a favorite stop after visiting my relatives in Lowville. I have been going there over 30 years. Great service and homemade ice cream. Tried some new flavors this time around wine ice cream. I had the white zinfindal. Recommend it.

Ice cream made on property and creative outside of the normal flavors offered at your local ice cream shop. They offer so much more. Ice cream sandwiches, ice cream cakes, true half gallons to go, and they invented wine ice cream.

Mercer's makes its own ice cream, right on the premises! They even make wine ice cream. The service is always phenomenal and the ice cream is delicious!

This dairy has the best ice cream around! They make it onsite so it is fresh and the staff is always happy to help you. Lots of flavors to choose from! Try the wine ice cream, it's made Mercer's famous!

Love stopping here for weekly ice cream with my family all summer, and a few times in the off season. Sometimes we find an excuse to stop in again. The staff is more then friendly, and the choices are amazing.

We have been coming to this dairy /ice cream store for four generations. There was a delivery truck in the 1960s. Great ice cream. Many many flavors. The sundaes are great.
