Words can’t express how grateful we are for all of our 2020 customers!  

Thank you for adapting to all of the changes that we needed to make this year.  Our goal was always to keep you and our employees both safe and happily stocked with ice cream.  Your kindness and care has been the highlight of a challenging year.

We have no idea what the 2021 season will bring, but we’re hopeful! Please help support all of our local businesses this winter – your patronage makes a big difference.

We’re wishing you a safe, healthy, and sweet new year!

~The Farfar’s family!
