Ice Cream Craving? Try Bloom Hill Farm

Scroll down to content

It never fails to surprise me that even after living in Connecticut for my entire life, there are still places I have never been to or heard of. Such is the case for Bloom Hill Farm: a local, rustic ice cream shop located a mere ten minute drive away from me on 696 Cottage Grove Road in Bloomfield, CT, right past The University of Hartford.

My friend Hannah mentioned it off-handedly to me over breakfast and seeing my confusion, explained what it was, baffled I hadn’t ever been before. We agreed to meet up again that very night and try it out.

The drive to the ice cream farm-house was easy and I was surprised I had never noticed it, passing that area so many times on my way to work last summer. When we arrived, I scanned the menu and was pleased to see an assortment of hand-churned hard ice creams, soft serves, and milkshakes. I settled on a classic: the chocolate shake. It ended up costing me only six dollars for a large, 20 ounce cup. I quickly slurped it down; the consistency was perfect.

I liked the cozy, simplistic, and no-fuss charm of the location. The barn was located right off of a busy street and had a spacious parking lot and a field and cages with farm animals alongside of it. The owners, a sweet older couple, accepted only cash or check as forms of payment.

I would recommend Bloom Hill Farm to anyone looking for quality local ice cream for a good price and a nostalgic location with a nice view and space to sit and savor your frosty treat.
