‘I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”



• The Dairy Castle at 801 Indianapolis Road in Greencastle, has been around for 50 years. Rob and Jane Best purchased the business five years ago. Wanting a seasonal business and loving ice cream, they found the well-established Dairy Castle was the shop for them. It is one of the only ice cream shops around that makes its own ice cream on site — much of it completely from scratch. Rob says many of the 25 hand-dipped flavors have come from trial and error experiments. Many of the recipes have been handed down from owner to owner, too, he said.

Some of his new flavors include ammarretto toffee, mango sherbet, rum raisin and cinnamon ice cream. Sherbet flavors include orange, watermelon, mango and raspberry salad. This quaint little ice cream shop also offers a full line of sandwiches and ice cream speciality items. It offers drive-through service, can seat 24 inside and offers picnic tables for those warm sunny days of summer.

The hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 765-653-9222.

• The Swiss Connection, northeast of Clay City, 1.4 miles east of Indiana 59 on County Road 550 South, is owned and operated by the Yegerlehner family. You can buy ice cream by the cone, by the pint, quart or pre-ordered three gallon sizes at the Swiss Connection store at the walk-up counter.

The Yegerlehner dairy farm has been in the family since the mid 1860s, but for many years the milk was shipped out and not processed on site until 2000. Their premium ice cream is made on the site but with a milk cream base because all the cream from their dairy is set aside for the cheese and butter products they make.

But all natural ingredients — no artificial colors or flavors — are added to come up with all the flavors they offer. For cones, there are eight varieties; 20 different flavors are available in bulk.

For more information, you can contact the Swiss Connection at 812-939-2813 or visit
