Young’s Jersey Dairy named an official stop on the Ohio Ice Cream Trail

15 Ohio ice cream shops make the drool-worthy list put together by Ohio.org

Now this is the kind of trail we would be happy to trek in recent sizzling temperatures.

An official Ohio Ice Cream Trail with 15 shops has been compiled by ohio.org — and Young’s Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs is an essential stop along the way.

The website pointed out that Ohio is home to more than 2,200 dairy farms and hundreds of shops “each with their own flavor for creativity.” With Ohio being an ice cream lover’s dream state, the top 15 is pretty much the cream of the crop. 

Graeter’s made the list, and so did Jeni’s.

The dairy farm, located at 6880 Springfield-Xenia Rd. in Yellow Springs, offers a lot more than just great ice cream, though. A fully functioning dairy farm, batting cages and even a year-round restaurant also operate on the property, making it a go-to destination for locals and visitors alike.

Other Ohio favorite’s that made the sweet list include Velvet Ice Cream in Utica, Aglamesis Brothers in Cincinnati, Handel’s in Youngstown, Hartzler Family Dairy in Wooster, Johnson’s Real Ice Cream in Bexley, Lake City Creamery in Celina, Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream in Cleveland, Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Zanesville, Sweet Moses Soda Fountain and Treat Shop in Cleveland, Toft’s in Sandusky, Whit’s Frozen Custard in Athens and Dietsch Brothers in Findlay.
