Where to Find Locally Raised Dairy For The Perfect Ice Cream in the Treasure Valley

What's a more iconic duo than the hot Idaho summer months and ice cream from a local dairy farm? Our superb partners at Unbottled got the scoop on a complete list of ice cream shops in the Treasure Valley serving up delicious icy treats. 


If ice cream isn't your thing, don't fret—we also added plenty of other scrumptious businesses serving all types of frozen treats. Check out the list below brought to you by Unbottled with shops from Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, and all across the Treasure Valley. 



A Boise staple, The STIL started humbly at their Broad St. location, and have quickly expanded into multiple locations and their signature flavors being available in some local grocery stores. Another popular Boise ice cream shop is Goody’s Soda Fountain. Since 1997, the Hyde Park parlor and its handmade ice cream and soda has been a Boise tradition. If you’re craving something a little different, check Blue Cow Frozen Yogurt. Their cozy shop in the East End of Boise is a great place to walk, bike, or drive to for a thick, creamy, dessert.

What once was farmland, Meridian is now home to thousands of Treasure Valley’s residents and many fantastic ice cream shops. In downtown Meridian, still featuring many of the old city's original buildings, Truffles, Etc. serves up ice cream, house-made chocolates, and other sweet-tooth treats. Further down the road, Bite Me Bars are a fun new creation that bring hand-held ice cream and funky fun flavors together. They are a sight to be seen! No one has the ranch-to-table ice cream perfected like Reed’s Dairy. Their classic and seasonal scoops are created from their very own dairy farms in Eastern Idaho, and brought to the Valley for us to enjoy.
