The Frozen Farmer: Bridgeville Delaware Farm Creameries

The Frozen Farmer: Bridgeville Delaware Farm Creameries

If You Lived There, You’d Be Home.

The tiny town of Bridgeville, Delaware sees a lot of traffic heading to and from the Delaware beaches (Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, etc.). So much so, in fact, that their slogan is, “If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home NOW.” Capitalizing on the high volume of thru traffic, the town is home to not one, but two Delaware farm creameries selling homemade ice cream. The first is Vanderwende’s, which I absolutely love. The second is newer, opening just a couple of years ago. It’s called The Frozen Farmer, and it’s definitely worth a stop if you’re visiting the Delaware beaches.

Delaware Farm Creameries – More Than Just Ice Cream

From the road, the Frozen Farmer looks like a large farm shop/produce stand. It’s red and eye-catching, neatly maintained and definitely welcoming. It’s an adjunct business of Evans Farms, a third generation, 2000 acre farm that grows produce for multiple local restaurants and grocery stores. It is not a dairy farm, but they use milkbase purchased from a local dairy. The other ingredients often come straight from the fields at Evans farms.

The outside of the shop has several tables and chairs, and a bench for children that looks like a cow. Colorful blooms brighten the entrance and make you feel like you’re on a friend’s front porch, about to go inside to visit.

There is limited seating inside the store, but most of the seats are outside. Still, who would be able to resist sitting at this cool table?

Yes, those prices are for real! Two scoops will only cost you $3. Sweet deal, huh? (Sorry for the pun… couldn’t resist.)

Nice Cream? What’s That?

In addition to traditional ice cream and sorbets, the Frozen Farmer also sells “nice cream,” a product that tastes like traditional ice cream, but with less fat and more locally grown fruit for added nutritional content. It’s an ice cream-sorbet blend.

I wish I could tell you that I tried the nice cream in an effort to be more health-conscious. Alas, I did not.

This is two scoops of Sweet & Salty, a smooth and creamy ice cream with bits of chocolate and pretzels in it. It was an unseasonably warm evening, so it melted quickly. Normally I eat my ice cream quickly enough that it doesn’t have a chance to melt! 😉

The Inevitable Comparison

So, how does The Frozen Farmer compare to Vanderwendes? Well, I still think Vanderwendes has the best ice cream around. But The Frozen Farmer is more child-friendly. So if you’re traveling with young ones, I would definitely recommend stopping at The Frozen Farmer.

The Frozen Farmer is located at 9843 Seashore Highway in Bridgeville, Delaware.
