We have been going to Farmington for years. Can't go without stopping at Gifford's. Sometimes there is a line, but it is worth the wait. Great flavors too.

I have traveled around the country, and have found only a couple of places where the hard ice cream comes close to Gifford's. Their use of Maine ingredients, such as Maine blueberries and raspberries, just adds to the experience. Moose tracks, Maine blueberry and mint...More

Very good ice cream - many flavors offered - makes this a staple of Farmington! Popular spot to gather on warm summer afternoons and evenings.

Give me a choice and I'll always get sorbet (Sherbet) but sometimes you just need a bit of ice cream, and this is amongst the best there is. Now I must add a disclaimer here… don't put a Baskin-Robbins near or I'd never stop here,...More

Gifford's is a Maine institution and for good reason. The ice cream is thick, creamy and well flavored. Some of flavors are unique to Maine--Moose Tracks, Maine Deer Tracks, etc, and some are wonderful standards, like mint chocolate chip, rocky road, caramel fudge, chocolate chip,...More

I would stop at any of the Gifford"s Ice Cream stands. We go to the ones in Round Pound and on Rt 130 just past the turn for Pemiquid Beach. They are cute little stands and the Main Black Bear is awsome.

My wife and I love good ice cream, and we have never been disappointed at Giffords. We've made sure to visit it every time we're in Farmington. It is a little pricey, but the ice cream is worth it.

If you're traveling in Maine and see a Gifford's ice cream stand, STOP. This ice cream is absolutely wonderful. Their classic vanilla and chocolate are prize winners, but there are lots of other flavors that are equally terrific. One of my favorites is toasted coconut....More
