Re:Bedford Farms - Bedford, MA
It is hard to find true farm made ice cream. Richardson is very good (and actually is made on a farm) so a lot of guys just use it rather than bother to make it. In my home town of Millbury Mass, Pearsons Elmhurst dairy does still make their own. It is sold in pints and quarts only out of a tiny on farm "store". It is worth the trip, but the flavor selection is often limited. They do not have a scoop shop.
An aside for those Cornell ice cream fans who gather here......I was told by an incoming Cornell senior who was working at the store that the Cornell ice cream plant is closed, pending rebuild.
