the funny lookin berry patch

Any time I am on US 220 between Rockingham and Greensboro, North Carolina, I try to stop at this place. There are several ice cream places on "220", but this is the good one. All the others are staffed by *pissed-off* high-school girls that are working there because their parents make them. At The Berry Patch, the people are nice. The strawberry building is quite an eye catcher. The real draw is the homemade ice cream. I also buy tomatoes there in late summer, and I stock up on local honey.

The rock salt is used to freeze their ice cream. I recommend the banana flavor. It's amazing! It's so good I've never tried any of the other flavors.

Today I noticed that they have their own website.

  1. That looks like a lovely place to eat Ice Cream. πŸ˜€

  2. Such a unique little place. Just the kind I like to eat at. Haven't had homemade icecream in umpteen years. I'll bet you've come across lots of little off the wall places during your driving.

    I bet he makes a detour for coming to this one.Homemade ice cream is still the best, the only real creamy one.It looks like a nice place, dave.Nice post.

  4. One of the items I bought was a large jar of honey.I should have told him, "Can you ring up this darling, honey?"

  5. It's nice there. Lots of people walking their dogs and licking ice cream. I even loved what was running the cash register. πŸ˜€
