Richardson’s Ice Cream

Although the ice cream stand has only been around for a half-century, the Richardson family first began milking cows on their farm in 1695. Since that time much has changed in Middleton, including the addition of two miniature golf courses, batting cages, and a driving range. Although Richardson’s is synonymous with family fun, it is the dairy-fresh, 16% butter-fat ice cream that people line up for…in long queues in front of a dozen or more open windows.
