It's a sign of the spring season – the opening of the legendary Kimball Farm Ice Cream Shop in Westford, Massachusetts.   This farm has now opened for the 85th time in its long history.

How exciting is this?  Well, one Facebook fan added a haiku in the comments to celebrate.

Haiku for first day.
We sit in our cars.
In warm coats. Eating ice cream.
A New England thing.

The opening of the ice cream store is also a sign of what's to come: the opening of the entire campus in Westford, Massachusetts, including bumper boats, an arcade, bumper cars, a zipline, batting cages, pitch & putt, pony rides, and more.  All of that is coming in mid-April.

It's also dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free! Flavors rotate, so give the store a call the day of your visit to hear what's in stock.
