Submitted by on May 1, 2012 – 12:19 amNo Comment

Why just stop for an ice cream when you’re traveling, Road Trips Foodies, when you can steer the car to a place that not only serves fabulous ice cream but shows you exactly how it’s made?

Velvet Ice Cream, 11324 Mount Vernon Road, Utica, Ohio (map), has been a family-owned and operated business for nearly 100 years, Joseph Dager founded Velvet Ice Cream 1914 and four generations of Dagers have since run the company.

Velvet produces more than five million gallons of ice cream every year from its headquarters on the 25-acre grounds of Ye Olde Mill (open to the public from May 1 through September 1 each year).

Ye Olde Mill also houses an ice cream and milling museum, a restaurant, playground, picnic area and catch-and-release fish pond. It welcomes 150,000 visitors each year for tours, tastings and events.

The Mill kicks off its 2012 season at 11 a.m. May 1, offering a scoop of ice cream at 1970s-era pricing. Guests can enjoy the free tours or watch ice cream being made from the viewing gallery.

Insider note: there’s free WiFi.

If you happen to stop in May 26, 27 or 28, 2012, you’ll be just in time for the 38th annual Utica Sertoma Ice Cream Festival.
