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

I have traveled the world and this is my favorite place for ice cream. When they close I stock up for the winter and am so happy when they reopen. It's very crowded so I plan my visits at unpopular times👍👍👍👍👍

I visit Connecticut every other year and always have to visit Ferris Farms. This time we went on a relatively cool and rainy Sunday afternoon so we escaped long lines. So happy that they stay open into October!

Ice cream the way it should be! Great portions, lots of flavors to choose from. Sometimes a good sized line but it moves faster than you would think it does

We were surprised to find the farm stand open into late evening in October. Even more surprised to see thirty people standing outside waiting with the smell of cow manure which normally would have sent us away but somehow encouraged us. Shared three scoops which somehow fit in a small cup that fit easily in my hand. The third scoop... More

When my brother told me we were going for a ride to get ice cream I didn't realize what I was in for. The place was packed! GOOD SIGN! We ordered a sundae that three of us shared it was so big. The ice cream was so creamy I couldn't stop eating. They had loads of great flavors something for... More

You will not find better ice cream anywhere. All home made on premises, on this historic farm in western Newtown. They offer a good selection of flavors and unique combinations. Only downside is limited parking, long waits if you don't use the quick pickup window. Season closes end of October.
