First good spring day in Connecticut brought everyone out to enjoy the sunshine and some very good ice cream. There were many people sitting in the sun, at the picnic tables and on the grass.
I had two scoops, German Chocolate Cake and Almond Joy, in a waffle cone. The German chocolate had large pieces of cake with pecan caramel mixed in. The Almond Joy surprised me, as I expected a white coconut ice cream with almonds and chocolate mixed in. It actually was a pleasant surprise as both flavors really complemented each other.
The problem is that their many unique flavors cannot be seen from the order counter and you feel as if you are holding up the line if you cannot make up your mind quickly.
Many of my Roadfood destinations involve me taking the two dogs along. Frisco and Ursa felt that the vanilla had a rich, creamy and smooth texture...
"A scoop of rum raisin and a scoop of Razzmanian Devil. The latter was the consensus favorite of the group."
"The peaches & cream is smooth and light on the tongue."
"Service with a smile."
"Spiced apple is a popular autumn flavor."
"Eating ice cream in a real farm setting is a real pleasure."
"A friendly monument to the right of the order windows"
"All dining facilities are outdoors at picnic tables. Note the milk cans at the far right of the photo. They dilineate the parking lot. Out of camera range at the far right is the cow barn."
"The Rich Farm road sign on Route 67 in Oxford CT: a welcome sight when you're in the mood for some of the finest farm fresh ice cream in the world. "
"Route 67 is an old country road; and Rich Farm is a taste of the way life used to be when Connecticut was known for its dairy farms."
