February 23rd, 2016 by Pamela Murski

Blue Bell Creameries should be on your radar once again!  They are back in production and better than ever so if you’re already looking ahead  for a getaway, we’ve got some fun ideas you’ll be bragging about when you book your getaway at the ranch!  Some of the great things to do on your one tank getaway include:

Blue Bell Creameries which is back in production with some of their favorite flavors like Dutch Chocolate and Homemade Vanilla.

This article from TravelingMom.com will motivate you to come on up for a tour of our famous “Little Creamery”!…..

“When you ask a Texan what their favorite ice cream is, most will say Blue Bell Ice Cream.

Blue Bell Ice Cream originated in Texas and the mere mention conjures up these amazing childhood memories of big melty bowls of homemade vanilla ice cream on a hot summer day.

A Texas born & bred company in Brenham, Texas, Blue Bell Creameries is 90 miles east of Austin.

The Blue Bell Creameries is open on weekdays for tours and is well-worth the drive. Makes a great day trip!

Blue Bell TourThe Brenham Creamery Company started in 1907 when a group of farmers started making butter from cream. A few years later, they started making ice cream and delivered it to local residents by horse and wagon.

In 1930, the name was changed to Blue Bell Creamery in honor of the Texas wildflower, the bluebell.

A tour consists of a quick historical movie, a fascinating tour of how the ice cream is made (they use the milk from 50,000 cows every day!!), and a free scoop of ice cream as a sample.

Tours are timed and limited in number, so it is best to come early in the day. Also, the factory starts to shut down machines at 2:30 p.m. No cameras are permitted on the tour. They are closed on the weekends, so make sure to come Monday – Friday.”

One  of our favorite stops for getting a scoop from Blue Bell Creameries,  is  SCOOPS!  We will get 1  scoop but  2 flavors…..half this  and half that or  2 scoops so we have 4 different ice cream flavors to enjoy!  Scoops is located in the convenience store next to KBobs Steakhouse and Westwoood Cinema on  Hwy 290 West just past the city limit.  Go to a movie and then enjoy a nighttime treat of Blue Bell ice cream from Scoops!

Some other great hot spots to enjoy during your getaway include historic Downtown Brenham, local wineries:  Texas Star, Windy, Pleasant Hill & Saddle Horn, the Chappell Hill Lavender Farm, Home Sweet Farm Biergarten (spaghetti western movie night on Friday and live music on Saturday nights….all  free), and Washington On  The Brazos. Even  New Yorkers want to come to Brenham! So book your room today at the ranch for your getaway and come enjoy Blue Bell Creameries once again!
