To adhere to state guidelines as well as keep our employees and customers safe while practicing social distancing. We have two ways to order: we have an "order tent" and we are taking online pre-orders.
We have a tent for walk-up orders where customers can place on-site orders. Please follow the signs. Masks are required in the line, order and pick-up areas as well as in the picnic area when not seated.
Walk-up orders in our "Order Tent" are open from 11 am - 9:30 pm Tuesday - Sunday and Monday from 1 pm - 9:30 pm as we open late for cleaning and inventory.
Online orders are open during posted hours. Outside of those hours, the system will say that items for sale are unavailable.
Online orders: Order between 12 noon - 8:00 pm Friday - Sunday for last pickup before 9:00 pm.
We appreciate your patience as we safely stagger pickup times throughout the day. Your pick-up time will depend on how many orders come in before you. The computer generated estimate in the initial order receipt may be off depending on demand. We scoop orders based on when they come into the system.
You will receive a text, e-mail, and/or call when your order is ready to pick up. Please understand that the first estimate you get is just an estimate and orders may be ready at different times. We do our best to stay on track, and if your order is ready, we will keep it cold for you in our freezer until you pick up.
When you arrive at the parking lot for pick-up, please call the number posted to let the scoopers know that you are here. They will then put your order on the front counter with your name printed in large letters. One member of your party may then come up and get your bag. Please adhere to social distancing regulations and maintain 6 feet of distance between you and any other customers. Masks are required in the pick-up area.
Thank you for your patience and understanding of these new norms as we work to keep everyone safe.
If you have any questions, you can message us on Facebook, contact us here, or call.
Online orders: Order between 12 noon- 8:00 pm Friday - Sunday for last pickup before 9:00 pm.
Walk-up orders in our "Order Tent" Friday - Sunday between 12 noon- 9:00 pm
All of our ice cream products are handmade in small batches on location with many of the same recipes we have been using for generations.
We make Fresh Native Fruit Flavors and Sundae Toppings with seasonal fresh fruit from local farms. Look for Fresh Native Strawberry mid-June, Fresh Native Red Raspberry in July and August, Fresh Native Blackberry and Fresh Native Black Raspberry in July, Fresh Native Peach and Fresh Maine Blueberry in August, Fresh Native Baked Apple and Fresh Native Spiced Pumpkin in September.
We have a rotating menu of Vegan flavors that are dairy free. Flavors include Coffee, Strawberry, Mint Chip, Chocolate Chip, and others.
Do you make all your own ice cream?
Yes! All of our products, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and vegan, are made right on site in small batches with ingredients added by hand. The ice cream is literally made in the Benson home.
What flavors do you have in stock today?
We try to keep our regular ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors in stock, but all of them can run out from time to time. We are currently trying new Vegan flavors so the Vegan menu is constantly changing. To find out what flavor we are trying this week, send us a message. Our Fresh Fruit Flavors are made only when fruit is available and sell quickly so they sell out frequently and even if we told you it was in stock, it may not be a short time later. We do not take pre-orders or save flavors for customers other than bulk event orders. Everything is sold on site on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Are your products allergy safe?
All of our products are homemade in the same machine, which includes dairy, gluten, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, and soy as well as other ingredients. For slight allergies, intolerances, and dietary restrictions, please let your server know and they will do their best to make sure your order does not have ingredients that you can not eat, but in severe allergy cases, our products are not recommended.
Is your ice cream gluten free?
Our ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, and vegan ice cream bases are gluten free. Some flavors have gluten add-ins such a brownies and grapenuts. All of our products are homemade in the same machine (see above).
What forms of payment do you accept?
We take all major forms of pay, including Discover, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
Do you sell gift certificates?
We do sell gift certificates at the stand in any amount or for a specific item as well as online (see "Gift Cards" above).
Do you ship ice cream?
Unfortunately, we are not able to ship or distribute ice cream other than at our location. You can only get Benson's Home Made Ice Cream at our location.
