Ben & Jerry's Factory

Founded in a renovated gas station in 1978, this Vermont icon has become famous around the country and internationally. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield’s company is constantly developing new flavors for its customers, and specializes in uniquely-themed flavors. The company frequently releases new ice cream flavors that have a cultural, political, or social meaning or theme behind them, such as Cherry Garcia (named after the former lead singer of the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia), but it also produces a wide variety of more traditional flavors.  Today, the Ben & Jerry’s brand is worth over one billion dollars.

What to Expect

Nestled in Vermont’s Green Mountains, you will enjoy one of their freshly made iconic ice cream flavors in this picturesque setting.
