I was returning from Boston and stop in to use the restroom. I was happy to see that they sold milkshakes when I was done. Bought a chocolate shake and wasn't disappointed. Just writing this review now makes me want to have another one.

When our foreign former au pairs come back to visit, this is the first place they ask to go. I'm a big fan of Muddy River (firm peanut butter swirled through rich chocolate ice cream) and also of their Orange-Pineapple, but everyone I know has their own favorite flavor. The frozen yogurt is also good. I have not tried the... More

We've enjoyed Bedford Farms for years. The flavors of regular ice cream are so great, I only just tried their soft serve for the first time this month (we've been customers for over a decade). It was awesome as well. Note to the wise: the kiddie size is more than enough for most ice cream lovers.

Bedford farms ice cream stand in Bedford is our go to,for specialflavors and rich creamy ice cream. But their all year store in Concord is only 1/2 as good. They do not have all the extra flavors...cherry bomb, frozen pudding, maple walnut, ginger etc. somthe best bet is in Bedford on toute 225.

Nice little ice cream shop by the rail depot. The sweet and salty was a little too sweet, but it was still a good thing on a hot day. The portions are too large though. You'll need to bring a friend to have anything larger than a small.

Went into Bedford Farms Ice Cream and it was packed. A long line that moved quickly with help courteous staff. The ice cream I had had no flavor. I ordered mint chocolate chip. I was disappointed in the taste. The portion was more than fair for a small and I thought the prices were reasonable for what you received.

Unfortunately for my waist size, Bedford Farms is within walking distance of my apartment in Concord. The ice cream is fabulous and the serving sizes filling. They feature great flavors including some I've never had before. My favorite - coconut. The soft serve is also incredibly good. Definitely stop by if you need dessert.

Dozens of flavors in an assortment of serving sizes, everything we've tried over the years has been top quality. It's open year round, but busy as hell of a summer evening. Just be careful with the kids around the back door -- it opens directly onto the train station platform. And be sure to tip the young servers -- school... More

This is terrific local ice cream. Not to be missed. I usually go to the actual farm stand in Bedford, but this is a nice mini ice cream location, and out of the crazy traffic and hubbub of Concord Center, which can be tough to park at. Parking here is not great, but usually you can get street parking. Don't... More
