Okay, I admit it. I’m always looking for new food trends. Novelty. Never seen. Launching. Debuting. But here is a little secret: these quarantine days, all I want is to enjoy a good scoop of ice cream, one with the taste of old-world.
If you share that feeling and would like to know about some of the best ice cream in the northeast, I have a great recommendation!
Bring a smile, and even a magazine, because the lines are huge at Ferris Acres Farm Creamery. Maple Walnut, Just Bananas, Elvis Dream, or Stony Path? I’m not sure what’s in each flavor, but I guarantee, one is more delicious than the other.
This old school ice cream parlor attracts families from all over the tri-state. High school kids work part time scooping ice cream with a big smile and a big cone in hands.
Moms feed their children, and their dogs.
Story goes that in 1864 this piece of land was bought by William David Baldwin Ferris and transformed into a dairy farm operation in the middle of the century. To help the farm turn a profit, they started selling ice cream in 2004.
My son Thomas has been going there for years and would always tell me about the uniqueness of this ice cream. It doesn’t take much to make us happy. Cheers to the simple things in life!
