Late Summer 2013 a dream came to reality when the Cream of the Crop Shop @ Whitaker Farms opened its doors. We wanted a place where people could sit a spell, and eat some good ice cream. We knew we had the location, but we needed the ice cream, after all Whitaker Farms is not known for being a dairy farm! So we partnered with Homeland Creamery in Staley NC and as they say the rest is history!
We have a 10 Case dipping cabinet where we always have Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Butter Pecan, and Black Cherry on hand. And we alternate flavors such as Orange Creamscicle, Cake Batter, Apple Pie, Peach, Blueberry, Cookies and Cream, Mint chocolate chip, CupCake, Coffee, Banana, Cherry Vanilla, Lemon, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Reese Cup, Pumpkin Pie (seasonal) and Peppermint (seasonal). We also offer Milk Shakes for those wanting to drink the yummyness!
In the Cream of the Crop shop you will find bottle beverages such as root beer, orange cream soda, water and canned drinks as well. We also have Canned items such as salsa, marina, beets, and spreads, as well as chips and snacks.
Please make plans to come by while the greenhouse is open and you can enjoy your ice cream while strolling the beautiful plants and garden items for sale there. And say "HI" to Trouble the greenhouse dog, he loves to be petted, but watch that ice cream cone, although he doesn't need it, he will steal a lick of your ice cream while you are not looking!
Come by today, we are located at 4715 US HWY 64 East, Franklinville NC in between Ramseur and Asheboro.
