It’s that time of year again when one frozen treat takes its rightful throne, or cone to be exact. Ice cream is calling, and these five Hall County businesses are ready to serve some scoops.

Clermont's Mountain Fresh Creamery offers flavors like orange cream .
Mountain Fresh Creamery

6615 Cleveland Highway, Clermont

Mountain Fresh Creamery has continued to bring fresh dairy products straight from its farm to local families since 2000. The family-owned farm bottles non-homogenized cream and milk and makes its own ice cream and milkshakes. The creamery offers a wide variety of ice cream options including vanilla, peaches and cream and butter pecan. Each weekend, Mountain Fresh serves a special flavor of the week like mocha cappuccino or orange creme.

No visit at Jaemor Farms is complete without sitting down and enjoying a cup of soft-serve ice cream. Made with fruit grown on the farm and milk from Mountain Fresh Creamery, Jaemor’s ice cream can’t help its scrumptious allure. The popular strawberry and peach ice cream flavors are offered year-round.

Instead of packing scoops of ice cream into a cup or cone, Roll’s Oh-La-La embraces the delicate appeal of rolled ice cream. Using a frost top, which is a cold table top with shallow sides, the ice cream is spread into a thin layer, then rolled and placed into a cup. Customers can have ingredients mixed into their frozen treat like pieces of cookies and fruit.
