Another year at Kimball Farm in Westford MA

As I've mentioned before I am a working mom and by day I am an art director at a big corporation. Well one event we have that I actually do look forward to is our company summer outing. I know, who really gets excited about company outings. Well I do for this one because it's at a Kimball Farm in Westford, Massachusetts where since 1939 the scoops are huuuuge and at our private event the scoops are endless. Even better! Although I hate to look like  a glutton in front of my coworkers so I do exercise restraint.

This is how it goes...we do our company games where someone inevitably gets hurt in a mean game of tug-o-war, then we eat a good old BBQ picnic lunch and then the rolly carts loaded with ice cream comes out and two fun and friendly teens with awesome summer jobs of scooping ice cream all summer serve us their to-die-for ice cream. And we can go back as many times as we'd like.

Unfortunately they can't fit all 40 flavor in these carts so our choices are limited but we have some great options. My first picks: Mocha Almond Fudge and Mint Oreo (pictured below). There is something about Mint ice cream that isn't green. I know it doesn't alter the taste but the natural aspect of it is so refreshing. As I've said before Mint is my favorite and this was great. The Mocha Almond Fudge was well, exactly that with just enough almonds and fudge not to take over the taste of the mocha ice cream. Well both flavors did not disappoint. My partner in crime on the 3-par course chose good old Chocolate and Kahlua Crunch as pictured on the top. I couldn't go back for seconds but I did taste test his. The chocolate is sooooo good. Oh I forgot to mention we also get fudge, marshmallow, caramel, sprinkles, and this keg of whipped cream that I wanted to take home but I couldn't get away with it. I did have to dip into the fudge a little.

If you've never been to Kimball Farm is is worth the trip. It not only has awesome ice cream but really is an event with all the activities it has to offer. It's an awesome place to take a family, friends, or date night for mini golf, bumper boats, friend foods, batting cages and more. I do wish I lived closer but it's probably a good thing that I don't!

I went there twice when I lived in Portland, ME. It's so worth it. Their ice cream is super creamy and flavorful without being overwhelmingly rich.
