A massive, full scale operation, South Mtn. Creamery has has hundreds of cows, an amazing store that has a selection of meats, milk (some of which is fresh enough to have just come straight from the cow), and possibly the best and freshest ice cream you've ever had. The ice cream here is a religious experience, and by itself warrants... More

You are in the middle of Maryland dairy country, so don't get upset by cows and things associated with them. The creamery store offers a number of down home food products ranging from local honey, fruits and vegetables (in season), sausages, and cheeses, to the dairy products - and that is the primary reason for the visit. We found the... More

Just went on the tour this afternoon. It was wonderful. The kids had so much fun. Best part was visiting the calf barn. Very informational and all the children's questions were answered. They learned a lot. Best part was the scoop of ice cream after the tour. It was delicious. Nothing like homemade ice cream! Disappointed we couldn't stay and... More

I have a "problem" with ice cream...OK - I don't really think it's a problem, but whenever we travel, local ice cream shops are researched before hand so they can sneak into the vacation itinerary. We were in the area for a visit to Antietam and to ride the C&O, so on a day visiting Gathland State Park (and hiking... More

As others have noted, the smell and the flies here are overwhelming. At least the ice cream is tasty!

My grandson and I went to the South Mountain Creamery Spring Festival last year. We especially enjoyed the hay ride around the dairy farm, the tour of their milk plant, the milking of the cows, visiting with the baby calves, rabbits and chicken, and the free samples of their delicious milk products. We are going again this year. Their Spring... More

We decided to go to South Mountain Creamery, as we had seen their trucks in our travels, and wanted to see if they had good ice cream. The ice cream is good. The problem is eating and smelling very much go together, so it's hard to eat your ice cream amidst the strong smells of a farm which permeate everything... More

This is a nice working farm that has a store that sells their own products. They sell and deliver their own milk, cheese and ice cream. There was a festival going in there where the were giving tours of milking, calf feeding and hay rides. They had free samples of milk and cheese ... I'm sure they would have given... More
