Bremen: Organic Ice-cream

If you fancy a freshly made organic ice-cream in Bremen be prepared to work out -- hope for good weather, rent a bicycle and do as many locals do: Set out on a 15 kilometers ride, first in direction University, and then on the dyke safeguarding the land against the river W├╝mme to a dairy farm run by friendly family Kaemena in Niederblockland. On the embankment cars are allowed with a special permit only, but an astonishing number of locals come here by bicycle, foot or skating to enjoy an organic ice-cream (the scoop goes for 1.50 EUR), filtered coffee or cold organic drink and enjoy the farm and the countryside. There's a nice playground for children, and if you want to stay longer (minimum one week) the family rents out several pleasant holiday apartments (but make sure to book well in advance for holiday seasons). Opening hours on pleasant summer days may be longer than announced. Don't miss the poppy seed ice-cream and the varieties based on buttermilk.

On the farm you can also tap raw or pasteurized milk into your own bottle, the liter for 1.20 EUR. If you did not bring one you can buy a returnable 1 l milk bottle for the price of 80 cent. While the milk vending machine is serviced throughout the year the ice-cream parlour is closed in winter.

Since April 2017 a mobile ice-cream booth has been placed inside newly opened Markthalle Acht, located just to the right when you enter from Domshof square, a few meters away from Schl├╝sselkorb tram stop. It will continue to sell yummy organic ice-cream until the end of August, 2017, and there's hope that Kaemena's fresh Snuten lekker ice-cream will be served here after this date, too, probably from a different shop keeper.
