Woodside Farm Creamery

The Mitchell family has been running Woodside Farm since 1796, but it wasn’t until 1998 that the family opened the Creamery. If you’re in the market for locally produced ice cream, Woodside Farm Creamery is the place to be. The family makes its treats with the milk produced by the dairy herd on the farm. Currently, the Creamery menu serves up delectable milkshakes, cones, banana splits, sundaes, and ice cream cookie sandwiches. Take home a quart or a pint to enjoy later and be sure to check out their ice cream pies, cakes, and cookie cakes.

Woodside Farm Creamery boasts such diverse flavors as cake batter, cappuccino crunch, chocolate thunder, coconut, peanut butter and jelly, “dirt,” and bacon ice cream, along with classic favorites like chocolate peanut butter, butter pecan, cookies & cream, and cherry vanilla.

Woodside Farm Creamery is located close to Wilmington. Just take a drive down Little Baltimore Road in Hockessin.

Sweet Lucy’s Ice Cream & Treats

If you’re interested in trying delicious ice cream even closer to home, head over to Concord Pike and look for Sweet Lucy’s. Head inside or stop by the outdoor walk-up window and order a banana split, hand-dipped cone, sundae, or low-fat soft serve. Sweet Lucy’s also offers fresh fruit smoothies for the health-conscious and its signature cone is “The Crusher” – a nonfat soft serve cone infused with your choice of toppings. Other menu offerings include Philadelphia water ice, table top S’mores that serves four, and bulk candy by the pound.
