Visit Ben and Jerry's Vermont Ice Cream Factory
The Ben & Jerry's Vermont Ice Cream factory lies nestled within the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. Home to the world-famous ice cream, Vermont is a great family vacation destination. Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream colorful legacy began with humble beginnings in 1978 at a renovated gas station. Ben & Jerry's has become well-known around the world for their delectable frozen dairy desserts, eco-friendly focus, and tongue-in-cheek humor. While visiting the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, be sure to stop by and see the "Flavor Graveyard" of retired flavors, playground, picnic area, gift shop, and after the factory tour enjoy ice cream on the relaxing patio. Over the years, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream has broken several food-related records, such as creating the world's biggest Baked Alaska and the largest ice cream sundae.
