If you're going to splurge go for the real thing. The ice cream is rich and creamy.With patio seating, its perfect on a summer evening. Rates up there with Hornstra Farm and Crescent Ridge.

one of two best things to do in duxbury (the other being the duxbury beach). Always friendly , service is quick, fresh made ice cream with many choices. Servings are good size, live a little relax and chill out at farmer's!
