Young’s Jersey Dairy
Review by: Jane & Michael Stern
There’s something for everyone at Young’s Jersey Dairy: a goat-petting zoo, a farm-themed gift shop, a miniature golf course (Udders and Putters), a picnic grounds where you can have catered meals, summertime wagon rides around the farm, a serious restaurant (just up the road) that serves local produce, identified by which farm it came from, and a June to October art exhibit of statuary cows painted by local artists. It is all fun stuff, but for us, Young’s will always be the place to get a milk shake.
Using ice cream and milk from their own farm, Young’s blends regular shakes and extra-thick shakes (spoon required), as well as bullshakes that are extra-large, extra-thick, and come with one additional scoop of ice cream floating on top. There are exotic flavors galore, but give us a vanilla or chocolate shake every time, preferably with plenty of malt powder added. There’s none better. The dairy store counter is also a fine source of sundaes, banana splits, and bowls of ice cream from a choice of more than two dozen flavors. And you can have a nice little meal here, too: breakfast of sausage and biscuits or pancakes, or lunch counter sandwiches.
We were lucky enough that our last visit happened to be on a Thursday morning, when the dining room rang with the sounds of gospel music performed by a group of local musicians. We asked the staff who they were, i.e. what was the name of the group and did they have a CD available? The answer to our questions: no CD is available because this angel-voiced chorus is not an official group, just a bunch of people from the community who like to get together here every Thursday and sing their good news while customers enjoy bacon and eggs and coffee.
