Customers note fond memories, nostalgia for Kimball Farm

-

WESTFORD — As Kimball Farms reopens for the 2022 season, customers from far and wide return to have a taste of their favorite ice cream flavors again.

No matter the number of visits, Kimball Farms continues to charm its regulars, even those who are not Westford locals. Debby Mosher, who lives in Florida, comes to Kimball Farm every year when visiting friends. 

“The first time we came, we all got a clam plate, and when we got it I thought ‘We’ll never eat all that!’ The servings here are always very generous,” said Mosher.

One group consisted of Mount Wachusett graduates, who had come to Kimball Farm with two of their teachers to celebrate the end of the year. Stephanie Bowen chose to take the students to Kimball Farm because of her childhood memories.

“When I was a kid, I’d go [to Kimball Farms] with my mom and sit in the back of her car and eat coffee Oreo ice cream. I would feel so cool because I was a kid eating coffee,” said Bowen.

Sarah Vettese, who also works at Mount Wachusett, is a Kimball Farms regular with similar family memories.

“Seeing my mom on the zip line [is my favorite memory]. She doesn’t do a lot of risk taking, it was funny to see her face,” said Vettese. 

As for the students, the celebration was their first impression of Kimball Farms.

“This is my first time at Kimball’s and I like it. I’ve been to the one in Lancaster but it doesn’t have any of the attractions, just ice cream. I just did mini golf here and I really liked it,” said Katie Cameron, a first-time visitor. 

Even still, residents and visitors alike still swarm to Kimball Farm with friends and family. 

“My favorite thing is that we come with friends. It’s just so nice here [at Kimball Farms]. It’s well run, the ice cream is delicious, and the people here are so nice,” said Debby Mosher, a Kimball Farm regular.
