Definitely make plans to visit this farm. Great ice cream, wonderful staff, wagon rides, and fun animals make this a family friendly stop that is good for all ages! No admission fee required. The main areas are accessible with a few spots further into the farm that are slightly tricky to navigate with stroller or wheelchair. Definitely lots to see... More

Their homemade ice cream is great! Every time we have been there, we've tried a different flavor. The serving size you get is just right. All of the staff members are very sweet and offer you samples so that you can decide which one you like. Great family place.

What a great activity and located just not he outskirts of Fayetteville. This establishment conjures up images of days gone by. From the fields to pick strawberries to the facility where you can find fresh produce, it is a great experience and the grand kids loved it! The ice cream is a treat for everyone! We need more of these... More

It has VERY good home made ice cream! Eventhough it was hot, we enjoy our self guided tour. My girlfriend also bought some local honey there which was really good.

All of my children toured the farm- as kids at school and scouts. At the end of the $2 tour they would give you a small sample of local homemade vanilla ice cream. Soon people skipped the tour to get the ice cream. The family gave in and started a homemade ice cream shop. Imagine seeing a 5 gallon clear... More

We love to go get ice cream and then walk the farm. The animals are friendly and will come up to the fences to say hi. Our daughter loves it. Also, the paths to walk are pretty shaded so it doesn't get overwhelmingly hot. Their produce stand is also great. We enjoy picking out fresh fruits and veggies and chatting... More
