If you're looking for something to do but can't decide between mini golf, ice cream, the zoo or a geography lesson then Freddy Hill Farm is your destination. The Seipt family business includes Fred and Joanne Seipt and their 3 sons, Vernon, Matt, and Bill is a destination spot that will surely please any visitor! And while that may sound like an interesting and somewhat odd assortment of activities they really do cover it all and more!
What started as a dairy store in 1972 turned into a sit down ice cream parlor in 1988. The partners' wives, Nancy and Lesa Seipt became involved in the business at that time giving farm tours to school age children every spring. The Seipts wanted the public to know that they sold quality milk and give them some education about the farm and its workings. In 1991, the family opened Freddy's Family Fun Center where you'll find 2 miniature golf courses, batting cages, a driving range, and a snack bar. And remember that zoo I mentioned? It's there, and it includes calves, pigs, sheep, goats, elk and deer.
Named "Best of Philly" by Philadelphia Magazine! All of their ice cream is homemade from their own milk and cream and you can watch milking from a special observation deck from 4-6pm daily.
Take a short drive (they're located right off of the Lansdale exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike) and eat some ice cream, pet the animals and remember that geography lesson? Try the Discover America mini golf course that features a mountain terrain and water rapids highlighted by a mountain and cave in the center of the course. It's fun, challenging, and educational as you receive a geography lesson on the United States at each hole! Better yet, on Wednesdays Moms play free with a paying child from noon until 5! (Dad's play free on Fridays)
