Love homemade ice cream and supporting a local business?
Then you won’t mind the 20-minute drive to The Ice Cream Barn from our Inn in Providence!
The Ice Cream Barn is located down a quiet rural back road in Swansea, Massachusetts at the Baker Farm. As soon as you pull into the gravel parking lot you will see and hear the many cows just across the way. You might even spot a calf or two following their parents around the field.
Step inside and you’ll smell the homemade waffle cones cooking. The barn crew is hard at work taking orders, filling cones, and making sundaes.
Not sure what flavor to get? They will happily offer you a sample!
They offer a set menu of ice cream, frozen yogurt, and no-sugar-added flavors. They also offer limited edition flavors throughout the year changing often with the seasons. A few of my favorites are Black Raspberry Berry, Coffee Milk, Coffee Oreo, Cookie Dough, Gingerbread Man (limited edition), Mint Chip, and Peanut Butter Heath Cup (limited edition). Beware, the barn crew is very generous with their scoops!
The homemade waffle cone is a must!
WCVB Coverage: “Locally Made Ice Cream with Endless Combinations”
All of their ice cream is “barn made” on-site. They utilize milk from their cows (which is picked up, pasteurized, and homogenized by the Winsor Dairy of Johnston RI, and delivered back to them to churn into delicious ice cream). They also use many other ingredients grown and produced by our local hard-working farmers as well, including fruits, mint, maple syrup, honey, and more!
The Ice Cream Barn is open year-round. They open their doors for the season on March 20th and close on December 20th. During the winter months, they switch to online ordering with a curbside pickup system for pints, quarts, and a side of cones.
