Great farm store especially for ice cream and milk. Reminds me of an old fashioned country store with dairy, jelly, jam, baked goods, etc. Hand scooped ice cream is excellent. Some farm animals for the kids and plants available.

Live 5 minutes away. Probably there every other week for milk, eggs and other "stuff". Have a nice selection of GOOD pies and other bake goods. A fresh turkey can be ordered at Thanksgiving, and I believe ham too at Easter, not positive on that....More

Lovely little place for farmer's market type food. GREAT ice cream that actually contains cream! Plus, other foods, sweets and fun stuff. A bit out of the way but worth the trip.

Form spring time vegetable plants to summer corn and fall apple cider donuts always something new and different to do. And don't forget the fresh Ice Cream and the goodies from Lancaster. Also check out the livestock, chickens, pigs, cows etc. in the petting area.

We often stop at Merrymead after dinner for some of their generous scoops of ice cream and then walk around to see the various animals. We enjoy watching children as they move from one display to another. There's also the corn field maze that they...More

Great farm setting. We take our granddaughter here frequently. She knows the animals on a first name basis. Best ice cream. Plants, fruit and produce - in season. Check website

Family friendly events, ice cream, hayrides, pumpkins, plenty of parking. It's my favorite farm in the area. Missing one star bc it gets too crowded sometimes and it is expensive as they weight the pumpkins instead of just doing a flat rate.

10th stop on the #PursueYourScoops Ice Cream Trail. We had a small scoop of the peanut butter chocolate for $3.70. The parlor is in a small store right in the middle of the farm. Serene bucolic setting for eating tasty treats.
