Pennsylvania - Lancaster County - Lapp Valley Farm / by Dave Hileman

Years ago Cindy and I found this farm selling homemade ice cream from their barn, two flavors, i think. Several years later we re-discovered it and have not missed a cone in Lancaster area since. Lapp's is available at Kitchen Kettle Village - and the ice cream is the same but the real experience is going a few miles further to the farm. They have a wonderful shop, more choices (including delicious coffee milk!) and a super laid back, easy, comfortable manner. You can explore the barns and  pet the dogs and watch the peacocks. And note the price. This is a large scoop of premium ice cream. Besides, where else can you watch an Amish family in a large farm wagon loaded with kids pull up to the drive-in and order ice cream.
