Shaw Farm - Dracut, MA


Drive a few short miles outside of the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and the smoke stacks are suddenly replaced by silos and the concrete by lush green fields. It is in the town of Dracut that one can discover the last operating dairy farm in the greater Lowell area. Shaw Farm has been producing milk for over a century, but only began to sell its ice cream from a seasonal stand in 1999. Ice cream cones are best eaten at one of the outdoor picnic tables, just a stone's throw from the farm's bovine residents.

Overall Experiencerating
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream - Subtle, mint extract flavor with a scattering of chocolate chips. rating
Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream - This scoop had a nice peanut butter flavor, but it was not strong enough to fully satisfy a nutty craving. rating
Vanilla Ice Cream - Creamy, light texture, but lacking a bit of vanilla flavor. rating
Hot Fudge Sauce - This hot fudge did its job of being a sweet and gloppy topping, but was nothing out of the ordinary. rating
