Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory
Located 26.15 miles from Lone Pine Campsites
Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains our ice cream factory sits on a rolling pasture overlooking the Worcester Range, just north of the small town of Waterbury. Our guided factory tour is fun & educational for all ages. Guests will learn about the ice cream production process and how the Company’s 3-part mission statement is incorporated into day-to-day business decisions.
We start with a 7-minute “moovie” shown in our Cow Over The Moon Theater. You’ll find out how two childhood friends, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, turned a $5 correspondence course on ice cream making into a very successful business that shares its success with its employees and with the community, and has fun doing it! From there we take you to our mezzanine, where you’ll get a bird’s eye view of “Vermont’s Finest” in action and an explanation of the ice cream manufacturing process.
Then it’s off to the FlavoRoom for delicious samples of the day!
After the tour, feel free to visit our scoop shop & gift shop. The scoop shop features 30-40 of our euphoric flavors, & our gift shop offers lots of cool stuff & gifts with a socially responsible mission.
