Serving Smiles Since 1968
Since 1968, Crescent Ridge Dairy Bar has been serving famous ice cream to people of all ages. Somewhere between an ice cream stand and ice cream heaven, you'll find the Crescent Ridge Dairy Bar. It's a place where you can enjoy over 40 flavors of the most delicious, premium ice cream you’ve ever tried.
Each flavor of ice cream starts with our 50-year-old Parrish family recipe and is carefully churned and hand packed to be truly, unbelievably, insanely delicious.
Crescent Ridge History
Local Farm Beginnings
Since 1932, Crescent Ridge Dairy has been delivering small batch milk and quality provisions to families throughout Massachusetts. Ever since Malby Parrish made the first rounds in his trusty 1928 Chevrolet milk truck, folks have been looking forward to seeing the Crescent Ridge Milkman come around the corner each week.
Opening of the Dairy Bar
In 1968, the Parrish family decided it was time to make summers a little sweeter in their local area. Using surplus milk from the summer herd, the family began crafting their homemade recipe ice cream, which is still in use today. The sweet treats had to have a place to be sold, so the dairy bar was erected and soon became a local name for ice cream.
