Mac's Dairy Farm
Tewksbury, MA
Mac's Dairy Farm has been here since 1981, however, the building looks much older. I don't know if there was a previous ice cream stand or farm here. The sign was replaced in 2020. [map]

Uhlman's Ice Cream
Westborough, MA
In addition to Uhlman's great homemade ice cream, there are picnic benches and grazing cows on a nearby hillside. In the 1890s, Westborough came to be known as Milk Town because of the large number of dairies located there. In the 1930s, there were still 40 dairies operating in town. By 1975, Uhlman's was the only one left. Unfortunately, a barn fire destroyed the dairy in 1996 but the ice cream stand lives on. [map]

Kimball Farm
Westford, MA
Kimball Farm opened its first stand in 1939 with 12 flavors of ice cream. There are now more than 40 flavors and three stands with this one, one in Carlisle (shown below), and one in Jaffrey, NH. This is the original location and where the ice cream is still produced. There are also bumper boats, a driving range, and a great mini golf course. For more, see this website. [map]

Cedar Hill Dairy Joy
Weston, MA
Handy Hill Creamery

The Cedar Hill Dairy Joy stand was established in 1927 as part of the Cedar Hill Farm. The dairy farm operated into the early 1940s. A fire destroyed the farm buildings in 1949 but the ice cream stand was spared. In 1961, new owners changed the name to Cedar Hill Dairy Joy. For more, see this website. [map]
