We happened upon this place while visiting the cemetery. It reminded me of the ice cream I used to have as a child at the dairy near my home as a child. Delicious and the people working here were so friendly.

You have to expect to wait for your delicious creamy ice cream cone, but it is so worth it. It has been our tradition to go to Farrs after a special event with our grandchildren. They look forward to us bringing them here.

So many flavors to choose from. Whatever you choose it will be awesome. And their waffle cones are the best. Their chocolate chip cookie dough is my favorite.

This is a really fun place to go for a treat. The atmosphere is vintage, clean and the service is always helpful and very nice. It is usually crowded on the weekends and sometimes during the week.

I do not know what they have changed in making their ice cream, but whatever changes they made did not improve the quality of their product,
