A brief history- the 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 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. The tour is perfect for curious little kiddos who love to see how things are made.
See, everyone can enjoy the tour and look as happy as I did getting my ice cream!
The Blue Bell Creameries has a great gift shop – featuring fun novelties such as this shirt which describes me to a T:
