Awesome ice cream and a great farm to wander around. The flavors and creaminess of the ice cream cannot be found anywhere else. We stop every time we are int he area.

This farm is an excellent place to take young children. My nephew loved it, but if you’re older then really the only draw is the ice cream. Very friendly staff, very pretty farm, very good ice cream.

Lapp Valley Farms is worth visiting. It's a couple miles outside of the village of Intercourse. GREAT quality and quantity of homemade ice cream from their own dairy herd for their prices. Great opportunity to experience a farm homestead for the cost of an ice...More

Have not been there in a while, but haven't head anything. I can't imagine them moving since this is a working farm not just milk and ice cream.
