Craft Made Ice Cream

We're Famous for Our Ice Cream for a Reason

When the temperatures start to rise in spring, we head to our favorite ice cream stand.

Did you know it takes around 12 pounds of whole milk to make one gallon of ice cream? That’s a lot of milk, but Vermont farmers and their dairy cows are up to the task.

Since 1978, Vermont has been home to one of the most influential ice cream brands ever scooped from a carton. Ben & Jerry’s started in a renovated gas station in Burlington, VT. An ice cream company with a heart and soul, Ben & Jerry’s has been playing a positive role in the community since day one. If it’s your first time visiting the state, you must block off time to tour the factory in Waterbury, VT.

But Ben & Jerry’s isn’t the only place to spoil your taste buds. Billings Farm & Museum in Woodstock offers visitors the chance to sample the ice cream they make themselves! In Quechee, stop by Frozen Memories ice cream shop to enjoy over 20 flavors of homemade ice cream. If you’re in the state capital of Montpelier, Birchgrove Baking offers seasonal flavors, made from scratch.
