A few weeks ago during our trip to Bowling Green, Brian and I decided to take a short detour to visit Chaney’s Diary Barn. We’ve heard wonderful things about this restaurant and it’s homemade ice cream, so we knew that we had to try it for ourselves!
The first thing that we noticed about Chaney’s Dairy Barn was the smell that hits you whenever you walk in the front door. It’s heavenly! Whenever entering a ‘barn’ you never know what smell might greet you, but it was clear that this was only a barn in name. The restaurant was clean, had a nice little shopping area, and lots of ice cream flavors!
We looked around the restaurant and shop area before heading to the counter to place our order for lunch. They offered traditional American foods such as sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, and wraps. Brian and I both ended up getting the Crispy Chicken Wrap. It was so good! Chicken wraps have been one of my biggest pregnancy cravings so I’ve had a ton of them lately and I liked this one because it was served on a spinach wrap. Doesn’t it look amazing!
After our meal, we wandered over to the Ice Cream Counter and picked out our treats. With flavors such as Chocolate Cheesecake, Cookie Moonster, Mocha Moo, and Big Red Rumble it was really hard to pick a flavor! In the end, Brian and I both ended up with blue ice cream, which was fitting since we both had green spinach wraps for lunch! I tried Cookies Moonster (Oreos and Chocolate Chip Cookies) and Brian had Blue Moon (Cotton Candy Flavored).
Both flavors were amazing! My only regret is ordering my ice cream in cup instead of a cone. We each ordered one scoop, but Brian had much more ice cream than me since his was in a cone. So if you visit, make sure to get a cone!
After we had our fill, we decided to go outside for a walk before leaving. I expected the restaurant to be part of a farm. I thought we would walk outside and see cows right away, but it wasn’t like that at all. They had a really nice playground but that was about it. I know that they offer farm tours though, so the farm couldn’t have been too far away. We did see a wagon, so I assume that you can take a wagon ride to the farm. Since we were pressed for time, we didn’t spend too much time looking into it.
Would we eat there again?
Definitely! Ice cream is tricky for us since Brian is a diabetic and he can’t have it often. However, I can already picture our little boy climbing up to the counter to pick his ice cream and then running around the play ground. It’s an awesome place, especially for families, and I know we’ll be back again someday whenever we are traveling through Bowling Green!
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
