The Black Cow is an ice cream parlor located on Route 109, in Millis, MA. We have both indoor and outdoor eating areas. We specialize in making delicious homemade Ice Cream & Fudge. Our menu reflects both customer suggestions and interesting flavors that we have came across in our travels. We use all the freshest ingredients, ripest fruits and real extracts. We have won numerous awards including “Best Ice Cream in the Region” and have been featured on Phantom Gourmet as a hidden jewel.
The reason our ice cream differs from the others is the overrun. This is where all ice cream manufacturers whip their cream together with air. This is called overrun, which means the amount of air in ice cream. For example 100% overrun equals 50% air 50% cream. Most commercial ice creams are 100% overrun.
Black Cow ice cream is a super premium with 16% butterfat product. It has a real nice texture and the ice cream is more dense but it is still very creamy, staying on your palate longer because it doesn’t melt as fast.
We only use the freshest ingredients and highest quality extracts shipped to us from around the country. All of our recipes were created by Wally Walsh and every batch follows a strict formula. Our ice cream is made with our Emory Thompson batch freezer built for us in Bronx, NY.
The Black Cow has over 200 flavors in rotation which change frequently. Check out our Flavors and Toppings page to see the current specials.
