Hand made in house with CT local dairy since 1968. Holy Cow Ice Cream is a vintage American Ice Cream Shop located in the heart of Newtown CT.
What was once the "Ice Cream Shop" made it first scoops in 1968 and was founded by Charlie White who also owned a sister shop in Woodbury, CT.
Charlie eventually sold the business and passed on the reigns. In 2010 The Ice Cream Shop was passed on a final time to long time local coffee jockey Jason Rabatin. With the new team came a new name..."The Holy Cow," a play on both the location of the shop (Church Hill Rd) and because it was the thing people exclaim the most when they tried our ice cream! Jason grew up in Woodbury going for ice cream at Charlie's secondary shop, so he has a passion for maintaining the quality and classic americana environment. Having an art background shows through in his creative flavors, sometimes bordering on "mad scientist" status.
Even though the name has changed the ice cream is still made the same way it was nearly 50 years ago. With local sourced dairy from CT farms and a little bit of love. Hollandia Nurseries have provided the amazing floral boxes and pots that make the outside as picturesque as the inside.
We are a small shop and pride ourselves on providing not only the best quality & tasting ice cream around but also the friendliest over the counter service that Newtown has seen. If you leave happier then when you arrived we've done our job - feel free to tell a friend.
