Just outside of New Paltz on Route 208 is Dressel Farms.  We first were introduced to the farm by friends of ours one night when we went for ice cream.  Yes, we go to Dressel for the ice cream.  They have an ice cream stand and the soft serve is some of the best in the area.

They have more than ice cream, they are a farm stand.  Vegtables and fruit.  Blueberries and raspberries too.  The kids and stopped over the on Thursday, and the raspberries had just come in.  The ice cream stand has some special raspberries treats on the menu, including a raspberry shake.  Of course, I had to try it.

The shake was probably the best I've ever had.  Fresh raspberries and I just love raspberries.

Not that I want to turn the entire Hudson Valley onto my favorite ice cream spot, but you really need to try it.  They have a nice section to sit down and enjoy your cone.  Plus farm animals for the kids to look at.
