Peppermint StickYou might think that the persistent aroma of farm animals would perhaps interfere with the enjoyment of ice cream but, no, we discovered that it's an enhancement. Tulmeadow Farm has been operating longer than the U.S. of A., and they began producing their own ice cream in 1994 (see the review). It's an exceptionally dense 16% butterfat ice cream. The pumpkin, below, captured not only the flavor but seemingly also the texture of pumpkin pie, and was more successful than the timid peppermint stick pictured above. The farm stand is low-key and homey, not a slick mega-stand. If we lived nearby this is where we'd come to purchase our jack-o'-lantern pumpkin.


Hey ChiTownDiner, how did we miss this place?

We tried some Autumn flavors at Rich Farm (spiced apple) and Dr. Mike's (pumpkin) and they were both delicious!

Didn't you also go to Collins Creamery? How was that?
