Our B&B owner suggested it. We were able to see them milking in the cows and then had some incredible ice cream.

This place is an absolute gem! We spent over an hour letting calves, playing with the kittens, and eating the absolute best ice cream we've ever tasted. The drive here will be part of the experience. Lots of Amish farms and horse and buggies on the way! What a find this place was, we had so much fun!

For what I expected, it was ok. Nothing spectacular to see as far as I could tell. I felt a little like I was intruding on someone's private property, so we didn't explore much. No signs or anything to direct us. GREAT ice-cream though. In alone was worth the nice ride through the farmland.

We stopped off here on our way to Lancaster for a snack. It is only a few minutes outside of the Lancaster attractions, and is a nice scenic ride through farm country. The kids had a blast here.

Loved Lapp Family Farm. They have fresh ice cream and you can watch them roll fresh waffle cones. As you step outside the ice cream shop, you may run into a cat, dog or peacock walking around freely. We got some great pictures with the animals.

My friends used to be the milkers for Lapp Valley so I have been many times and I never get tired of it!! Butter Brickle is my favorite. Milk, butter, and eggs are sold here as well!

Yes! I want to holler it out that this place has THE BEST ice cream made right there in the barn from the cows across the drive in the other areas! There are many flavors to pick from to put on to a waffle cone that they make right there. There are a few seats inside for colder weather as... More
