We visit here often when down the beach. It's fun to bike here and watch the cows while waiting for our ice cream order. They make the ice cream fresh from the milk from their cows. The have many flavors and are sensitive to peanut and gluten allergies. Their mint chocolate chip, Pineapple orange, Delaware Fruit and Moo Cookies are... More

I always order chocolate walnut banana in a waffle cone. The waffle cone is good but more importantly, there is more ice cream in a single scoop waffle cone than a cup. It is so good! I'm certain that the other flavors are good, too. I just can't get enough of my first flavor. It's been years. I suspect that... More

My wife and I live right down the road from Hopkins and there are always people there no matter what day of the week. They have TON of flavors and you can mix and match which is awesome. I love the chocolate chip cookie dough in a waffle cone and my wife always picks two random flavors in one cone.... More

My husband and I, along with our wedding party, enjoyed tons of ice cream from the creamery when we stayed at the Covered Bridge Inn! All of the flavors were to-die-for delicious!

Excellent farm fresh ice cream with Part of the ambience being the farm aroma when you arrive; excellent choices of flavor sand sizes; new to us on this visit is the ice cream sandwiches - good chocolate cookie - worth a stop

Since moving to the Lewes area, we've heard only good things about the ice cream at Hopkins Farm, and everyone has said that we have to try it. Finally we did, on a Thursday afternoon after the season was over, and we found that it lived up to its reputation. I mention the time because they were doing a strong... More

The best ice cream as long as you wear nose pins, hahahaha! Fun and educational for the children because the cows and the newborns are close by.

Hopkins Farm Creamery is an ice cream stand connected to a farm. The ice cream is delicious and the farm is interesting. We looked at cows and the calves which were sweet - really enjoyed by the kids. There is a little playground where kids could run around after finishing their ice cream and adults could relax and watch. I... More

We tried the Hopkins Farm Ice Cream on our recent visit. AMAZING! No other word applies. We had hoped to bring the kids to a full farm exploration. Sadly, that was not available But, we did go and get their ICE CREAM outside. This is WELL worth the visit! The ICE CREAM is awesome, fresh, and wonderful. Get it in... More
