The Creameries

The SouthCoast has some of the best creameries in Massachusetts.  On the different tours, riders will sample from some of the following ice cream shops.


Acushnet Creamery


Acushnet Creamery is owned and operated by Doug and Donna Coray in Acushnet, Massachusetts. They have been operating Acushnet Creamery for over ten years since the grand opening in July 2003. Since opening their doors, they have provided local families and visitors with delicious, homemade ice cream, yogurt and sherbets at affordable prices.  All of the ice cream, frozen yogurts, and sherbets are homemade right at the creamery.  As they have expanded, their menu has grown to include over 50 flavors, including dairy-free sorbet.

Annie’s Ice Cream Shack


Annie’s Ice Cream Shack is owned and managed by Anne Domagala and her family of Rochester, MA. The shack itself is located at 50 Middleboro Rd, Freetown, MA.  Annie’s Ice Cream Shack proudly serves Acushnet Creamery’s homemade ice cream. Family owned and run, Annie’s Ice Cream Shack is a great place to bring your own family to enjoy the best ice cream on the South Coast. They carry 39 flavors, 37 of which are permanent, 2 are specials that change every few weeks.

Cape Cod Select


Cape Cod Select is a family-owned producer of fine cranberry products, the retail face for the Edgewood Bogs Cranberry Growers.  While technically not a creamery, Cape Cod Select agreed to join Tour de Crème this year and serve samples of their cranberry and mango-berry smoothies on our 11 and 19-mile tours.  The Rhodes family has two basic goals: provide the public with “Cranberries for All Seasons” and make them the best quality on the market.  


Captain Bonney’s Creamery


Captain Bonney’s is located at 258 New Bedford Rd in Rochester.  They serve over 54 flavors of hard serve ice cream.  Half the flavors come from Acushnet Creamery and the other half are Gifford’s ice cream from Whites Dairy.  And, if that is not sufficient choice, they also have soft serve ice cream. Captain Bonney’s is a great place to relax and have food & ice cream.  They also have a play yard for the children and the Clover Creek Horse Farm next door!

Country Whip


Country Whip in Acushnet is owned and operated by Amanda McQuillan & her family. Amanda had been working at the Country Whip as an employee & manager for 12 years. Her dream of becoming an entrepreneur & owning “the whip” finally came true March 2015.  The Whip is a family-owned restaurant & ice cream parlor offering homemade soft serve, farm fresh hard ice cream, and some of the best food in town! They are located at 1173 Main Street in Acushnet. They suffered a devastating electrical fire in May 2015, but are back in business and going strong!  

Earl’s Marina

The “Hatch”


At the end of Sconticut Neck Road on the causeway to West Island is Earl’s Marina.  The “Hatch” at Earl’s Marina in Fairhaven is an outdoor bar and grill with a menu that focuses on the freshest local seafood.  The boating crowd knows this is the spot to fuel your boat and yourselves.  Recently, Matt and Kathy Hebert added an ice cream stand at the “Hatch,” serving up several flavors of Gifford’s ice cream.  They also recommend their hot fudge sundaes with sea salt.

Oxford Creamery


For the town of Mattapoisett, Oxford Creamery is more than a spot on the map.  The almost perpetual line outside the door on hot summer days says a lot about its reputation. Part ice cream shop, part short order restaurant, Oxford is local New England in every sense of the word. The fresh lobster rolls, clam cakes, sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs and, of course, ice cream are favorites for locals, summer visitors, and those just passing through.


The Robins Nest Ice Cream and Food


The Robins Nest has a large selection of delighful flavors of ice cream.  This place is a little off the beaten path, located in the woods in Rochester at 423 High Street, but the ice cream makes it well worth going the extra distance.  The Robins Nest is basically a take-out window in the woods with picnic tables.  The owner Jim Carberry can often be found behind the window.
