About the Big Dipper Ice Cream Factory

Our home-style ice cream is freshly made on the premises in small batches to insure the finest product. In our search to bring you premium gourmet ice cream we use the world’s highest quality vanilla from the island of Madagascar and the best cocoa made from Holland.

We combine farm fresh dairy cream from one of the leading dairies on the east coast with choice chocolates, nuts, berries, and the purest of flavors and extracts.

With over 25 years and two generations of making ice cream, we strive to make your experience one that you will come back to for years to come.
