Woodside Farms

Can I offer you a scoop of Dirt? Or, perhaps you'd prefer a scoop of Motor Oil? What's that? You're more traditional; then how about a double scoop of Bacon. What am I talking about? Ice cream, of course!

Woodside FarmsThese are just a few of the off-the-wall creations you'll find at Woodside Farm's Creamery in Hockessin, Delaware, but don't worry; they've got the less adventurous covered too. This family owned creamery serves fresh ice cream made from the very cows you see while ordering your cone. And it doesn't end at scoops - Milkshakes, Banana Splits, Cow Pie Sundays, Ice Cream Cakes and Ice Cream Pies - are all on the menu. In fact, their ice cream pies have become a Thanksgiving tradition in my house.

And Woodside isn't only about the ice cream. Bring the family along to see the cows and enjoy the farm or attend a movie night when the barn becomes the movie screen. But whatever you do, don't miss opening day's "bring your own banana" half-price banana splits - a true treat. For 2014, Woodside Creamery's opening day is March 22nd.

As a self-proclaimed ice cream aficionado Woodside Farms Creamery is among the very best ice cream I've ever eaten. My favorite is a waffle cone with a scoop of Chocolate Peanut Butter and a scoop of Cake Batter. Take it from me, when things heat up this summer, forget that grocery store boxed stuff, go fresh, go Woodside. You won't regret it.
