How did it all begin?
Read on for a glimpse into Kimball Farm history!
Dairy Barn to Ice Cream Parlor
The farmhouse in Westford that is now the ice cream stand began as a dairy barn in 1908. At that time the Kimball family sold milk wholesale. In 1934, two salesmen stopped by: one was selling his freezer cabinets, the other his ice cream mix. They suggested the Kimball’s make ice cream. Jack and Clara took a leap of faith and in 1939 turned the woodshed on the end of the house into an ice cream parlor.
Legendary Ice Cream
In 1975, Jack and Clara moved the ice cream operation into the barn where it remains today, becoming the first location of the famous Kimball Farm Ice Cream. The original flavors included maple walnut, frozen pudding and peppermint stick. Today, more than 50 flavors are homemade daily using only the finest ingredients available.
Four Fun Locations
In 1988, the business was passed down to Jack’s grandsons, Michael and Peter Kimball — Peter still runs the business today. The Carlisle Ice Cream Stand opened in 1989, our Jaffrey, NH location opened in 1995, and Lancaster opened its doors in 2010. All ice cream is homemade at our Westford location, and our other 3 locations receive deliveries of fresh ice cream several times each week. The Kimball family is committed to maintaining its high quality standards while it continues to expand the offerings at each location.
