It wouldn’t be summer in northern Delaware if it didn’t include a visit (or several) to the Woodside Farm Creamery in Hockessin. Owned and operated by the Mitchell family since 1796 (that’s a successful business!), Woodside serves some of the absolutely most fantastic, decadent and refreshing farm fresh homemade ice cream and fudge daily, noon until dusk, every summer (April through October actually). And besides delicious frozen treats, they also have an amazingly friendly and competent staff behind the counter that really knows how to keep a line moving quickly – which is a good thing, because lots of smart people have discovered this treasure.
All that and the setting of a beautiful 200+ year-old farm with picnic tables full of scads of happy campers. Summer bliss!
