Things to Do

Hopkins Farm Creamery

Home to some of the freshest, creamiest ice cream that you’ll ever taste, Hopkins Farm Creamery is a unique local attraction that’s definitely worth visiting during your stay in Delaware. This quaint roadside ice cream stand is nestled on the grounds of Green Acres Farm, the largest dairy farm in the entire state.

The milk they use to make their unbelievably rich frozen confections come straight from the hundreds of cows that reside on the farm. This gives their ice cream a velvety texture that you won’t find in any of the ice cream on the shelf at your local supermarket. Flavors range from the classic trio of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry to more inventive creations like red velvet, black raspberry, and moo cookies, a flavor loaded with hunks of chopped up chocolate sandwich cookies. If you’re visiting Hopkins Farm Creamery on a Tuesday or Thursday morning and have some free time, take a tour of the facility and meet some of the cows that helped make the delicious ice cream that you’re enjoying! Tours are available by appointment only. 18186 Dairy Farm Rd, Lewes, DE 19958
