Fox Meadows Creamery & Country Market is passionate about the farm-to-table concept. The eatery is widely known for its cow-to-cone creamery, producing the freshest hand-crafted ice cream in an array of flavors, such as Madagascan Vanilla, Wilbur Chocolate, Honeyed Lavender, Lancaster Co. Shoofly Pie and more.
Create your own with an assortment of nuts, fruits and chocolates. Try a signature ice cream treat like the Baked Fox, affogato or custom-made milk shake. Need a pick-me-up? The creamery also offers coffee, tea, espresso, hot chocolate, mochas, lattes, frappes and other beverages.
The third-generation farm has been “a leader in Lancaster County in milk quality, animal husbandry and milk production.” They also believe that “happy cows make tasty ice cream.” Guests can enjoy their favorite flavors in a cone, dish or homemade waffle cones/bowls.
The creamery also touts a lunch menu full of locally sourced and artisanal items, featuring burgers made from beef raised on Stone Ridge Farm. The menu also includes fresh salads and sides, made-from-scratch soups and handcrafted sandwiches.
The family selects foods for their country market based on three factors: “taste, naturalness and authenticity.” Some of those brands include Emma’s Gourmet Popcorn, September Farm Cheeses, Millers Purely Maple Syrup, Christina Maser Canned Goods and more.
No room for dessert after lunch? No worries. Patrons can purchase pints and half-gallons of Fox Meadows ice cream to take home.
