Rich Farm Ice Cream Parlor Opens Saturday Morning

Popular shop prepping for big crowds.

A renowned local ice cream parlor that has been ranked among the top in Connecticut and beyond for several years will open for its 18th season today.

at 691 Oxford Road, or Route 67, will open at 11:30 a.m. today, Saturday, March 3, the company has announced on its website and Facebook page.

When the company made the announcement on Facebook last month, 61 people "liked" it and many have said they simply cannot wait any longer. Someone posted last night that she cannot "wait 18 more hours." As of Saturday morning, Rich Farm Ice Cream Shop had 1,473 followers on Facebook.

The business opened on July 3, 1994, by Dave and Dawn Rich on what is known as Ajello's Farm, according to the company's website. The couple, along with their children, opened the business to enhance their already existing dairy farm, which has been in the family for five generations, according to the website, which states "all of the ice cream is made daily on the farm, using only the highest quality ingredients."

In 2010, Connecticut Magazine readers voted Rich Farm the best ice cream parlor in Connecticut, and the shop has received several more accolades over the years.

See you there!

I had some edits that didn't save; it was a computer glitch. Thanks so much for reading, DougE. :)
