Wells Hollow Farm - Shelton, CT - Standing where they used to have their cows is now a brand-new creamery. Ice cream is excellent, and they made a nice place to sit down with a view of some of their remaining farm animals--mostly chickens. Their farm stand is on the other side, so it is a nice weekend stop. I had an incredible coconut concoction with shaved chocolate mixed in; I think it was called Eskimo Kisses--yummy! All the girls working here the day we went were very cheerful and nice. Feels funny to be sitting on a patio where there used to be their cute cows grazing. But so worth it.
Walnut Beach Creamery - Milford, CT - Down Naugatuck Ave near Walnut Beach is a fabulous ice cream find out of a house. Owner makes her own unique flavors by hand I believe so when it is gone, it's gone. They also have flavors for dogs. I found the ordering a bit confusing as they don't list the explanations, so you are left wondering what "such-and-such" flavor is and don't want to bother the staff with endless questions. There was a small blackboard outside listing SOME of the flavors. We ventured inside (hard to even notice you could go inside) where we found a list of explanation plus many many more flavors not listed on the chalkboard outside. Our ice cream was delicious. They also designed a beautiful backyard patio out of the former driveway with some nice shrubs, tables and chairs, lighting, etc. I had a chocolate cherry flavor. The chocolate was incredible. All the staff here were also very very friendly, patient and nice.
Both of these places are great. I will post this also in the New England Board.
