The Tullers have been working this same land since 1768. Now they’ve taken the venerable “do it simple, do it well” philosophy to their latest crop: gourmet ice cream. Using only real fruit puree and 16 percent butterfat, they mix up more than 50 flavors named matter-of-factly after the ingredients in them (“Red Raspberry with Chocolate Chips” is our favorite).
For seating, the Tullers offer hay bales from their beef-cattle operation. Far from being quaint, it’s a matter of Yankee practicality. How many other restaurants can mulch their chairs and throw them on the vegetable garden?
