Tessa Brinton (‘27) scoops Cow’s Feet, a signature flavor featuring peanut butter swirl and mini chocolate chips.

Opened on May 2nd, the Creamery Connection ice cream shop has become a new staple of the Hereford Zone. On Google, they have an average review of 4.8 stars out of five from 28 different reviews and are appreciated for their delicious flavors, indoor and outdoor seating, and welcoming interior. The business is family owned, opened by Patrick Maher and his wife. Creamery Connection hires students and is close to our school, so it is easy for students to visit after school to get ice cream, cool off, and see their friends. 

Creamery Connection serves unique flavors such Cow’s Feet, Lemon Crunch, and Cookie Swift. Cookie swift is a cookie dough ice cream honoring the coach of our girls lacrosse team, Kelly Swift. While they are closely connected to Hereford in this way, they also have a tight community within the ice cream shop.

Sophie Bedon (‘27) got her first job working at the creamery. She enjoys the helpful and friendly customers and coworkers there. 

“The manager and the owner are super supportive and the training was a lot of fun,” Bedon said. “For a first time job, it can teach you a lot.”

I visited Creamery Connection with my friends and we each tried a different flavor. I got Lemon Crunch in a cone. The ice cream was really good, but was missing some of the “crunch” that its name suggests. However, I was impressed by the waffle cone because it was delicious but it also had a practical shape. It was folded in at the bottom, so no ice cream dripped out. But the creamery makes a high-quality product, even without a unique cone.

“The ice cream was so divine,” Michael Miretskiy (‘27) said. Miretskiy got the Cow’s Feet flavor and enjoyed the “cozy” interior of the ice cream shop. It is furnished with small tables and chairs as well as a carpet, bookshelf, and rolling cart with card and board games.

The main complaint about the new shop has been the prices. While some think they are reasonable, others believe they are too pricey. But there is a reason for Creamery Connection to have supposedly hiked up prices. For one, it is a small business and all of the ice cream is made locally. Creamery Connection also supports local farms and creameries where they source their ice cream base. In fact, the name Creamery Connection was chosen because the shop sources ice cream from a variety of farms, connecting creameries.

Overall, we rated Creamery Connection 4.5 out of 5 scoops. It has easily become a new favorite in the Hereford Zone, and just in time for summer.
