Attention Fans Of Benson’s Ice Cream!!
I had to do a double take when I saw this deal pop up on Groupon today. Boxford is my home town and I have never seen any deals on Groupon for businesses in Boxford, MA. If you have never been to Benson’s it’s definitely worth the trip and you won’t leave you disappointed. If you come for the ice cream and love the quaint feel of the small town be sure and visit West Village Provisions it’s within walking distance of Benson’s and is another hidden treasure that you will want to check out.
Choose Between Two Options
- $10 for $15 worth of ice cream, frappes, and sundaes
- $20 for two Groupons, each good for $15 worth of ice cream, frappes, and sundaes ($30 total value)

Benson’s Ice Cream
Today, it’s a popular spot between spring and October, where sweet-toothed kids and grownups alike flock to creamy treats. But in 1932, Benson’s Ice Cream was a last-minute add-on for a little farm stand. Katherine Perley knew that a few sundae glasses and scoops would whet the appetites of passersby, making them more likely to stop and browse her selection of goods. However, she didn’t anticipate that the side business would become her legacy.
Though the farm stand is long gone, the ice cream stand still flourishes to rave reviews, and is now managed by Katherine’s great-granddaughter Tina. Its flavors include cookie dough, mint chip, and ginger, along with Fresh Native options made with fresh fruit from local farms that have run out of stables for their strawberries. The old-fashioned stand welcomes visitors to three ordering windows beneath a blue awning, which serves as a beacon for anyone in need of a homemade, frosty dessert.
