Zoe'S Ice Cream

Zoe’s Ice Cream Barn

After the usual amount of construction delays and a mad scramble to make ice cream, train staff, and work out the kinks, Zoe’s Ice Cream Barn opened last Saturday.  In addition to Zoe and her crew, my whole family was working serving guests, making milkshakes, and keeping the ‘barn’ clean. (Zoe is my wife’s youngest sister) It was supposed to be a ‘soft’ opening, but it turned out to be quite the scene as everyone came in to try Zoe’s ice cream.  Here is a map if you need it: Map to Zoe’s.  

Zoe’s only uses Hudson Valley Fresh milk from local dairies.

Hudson Valley Fresh

One of the farmers actually delivered the milk and the cream from Hudson Valley Fresh.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that.

    Zoe’s is about 1/4 mile east of the Taconic on 55. It is best to go before about 6pm if you want to avoid a long line. JC
