Well that is what a treat if you can wait in the long lines and have patience for the parking spot! Not my favorite things to do for any place, but IT IS WORTH IT! Many selections and boy does that ice cream taste great on a summer day and is perfect comfort food in the fall months...that Pumpkin! WOW!

This fabulous ice cream is as fresh and delicious as it comes. My family loves going there. Unfortunately since I have just been diagnosed with lactose intolerance, I will need to see what else I can have at this wonderful ice creamery! If your every in Newtown during the summer stop by - you won't regret it!

fun ice cream place!! lots of different flavors to choose from it's cool to be surrounded by cows, but I'd be wary of going on a hot summer afternoon because the manure can get a little smelly very crowded at sunset in the summer

Ferris Acres has, in my opinion, the best ice cream ever. They have many choices with catchy names and they're all so rich and creamy. My favorite is Ba da bing which is chocolate ice cream with bing cherries...yum!

Good old standbys like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry are our favorites. Bad Habit, Cow Trax, Salty Cow, CooCoo Cashew, are some of our favorites also. They also make... More

I'ts a dairy farm with a small red building out front with people lined up and looped around so you know it must be good, especially since this gem is slightly off the beaten path. It is our favorite place for a dessert treat. We even go here for a treat after eating out at other restaurants. Ice cream is... More

Ferris Acres Creamery is indeed a unique and memorable American and Newtown establishment. An ice cream stand situated smack dab in the middle of a working dairy farm surrounded by barns and pasture. It even smells like a farm (may not be to everyone's liking). In any case, the ice cream, friendly staff and ambiance make the wait (and there... More
