of frozen yogurt, sherbet, and ice cream for every taste–85 to be exact–all made from scratch on the farm. Chances are you're eating Richardson's whether you know it or not; they supply several shops and restaurants in the area. 156 South Main St, Route 114, Middleton, 978-774-5450; Cherry Farm Creamery, Danvers. Treadwell's Ice Cream One of the few places open year round, Treadwell's has had a loyal following since it opened in 1946. Known for generous por- tions of extra-luscious ice cream, those who also love chunks, pieces, and swirls rave about the amount of goodies in each bite. A diverse menu serves up several kinds of sundaes, from classic banana split to brownie, and the must-share 12-scoop Kitchen Sink. Try the hard yogurt (it really tastes like ice cream) in flavors like coffee Heath Bar and black raspberry chip. 46 Margin St. (Route 114), Peabody, 978-531- 7010, Mad Maggie's You will go mad over all the crazy-good flavors Steve and Maggie Repucci have dreamed up at their family-friendly shop. Even the couple's then-11-year- old son got in on the action when he came up with a Candy Store Floor concoction—choco- late malted ice cream with pieces of chocolate malted balls, M&Ms, chocolate chips, and Nestle Crunch bits. Customers are also encouraged to submit ideas, and nothing is too strange for Mad Maggie's to try; lemon Nerds and maple bacon are on the specialty menu. 1025 Osgood 112 St., North Andover, 978-685-2814, Meletharb Ice Cream For over 36 years, Meletharb has been making one-of-a-kind flavors like Baklava and Nutella. Proprieter Don Barthelemy is also the king of celebrations, churning out ice cream cakes stuffed with candy toppings and your choice of a message written on top with real fudge icing. Eve- rything is homemade here, right down to the whipped cream. A choice of fountain drinks, from thick frappes to lime rickeys, will quench your sweet tooth with a satisfying slurp. They'll even send you packing with ice cream and toppings for a do-it- yourself sundae at home. 393 Lowell St., Wakefield, 781-245- 4946, Richardson's Ice Cream Perhaps the most iconic of North Shore ice creams, Rich- ardson's Farm has been drawing crowds for over 300 years. Even today, their "cow-to-cone" philosophy is evident when you visit; you can watch fresh milk being bottled and order a scoop of the resulting silky ice cream moments later. There's a flavor White Farms Homemade Ice Cream Just look for the cow on the roof as you make your way from Crane's Beach along Route 133. This old-fashioned ice cream stand has been making fun flavors like Caramel Cow and Drew's Dino Crunch since 1953. Light and fruity sherbet and sorbets, as well as frozen yogurt and soft serve, make it easy to please any palate. Devotees anticipate the opening of White Farms every year and were more than thrilled when a second location opened in Georgetown in April. 326 High St., Ipswich, 978-356-2633; 70 West Main St., Georgetown.
