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.
