Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory Cow Statue

Tours are no longer available. There is a wonderful observation desk where you can see employees packaging the ice cream. The parlor offers pretty generous scoops of blue bell ice cream for a dollar!

They won't let you take pictures inside the factory, so don't even think about trying. They say it's not because they are trying to hide anything; they just want to respect their employees' privacy. The tour was six dollars, but worth it. It may not be the best for children because it's a lot of "look at the pipe over there," but it was good for adults. Our guide was very knowledgeable and handled a crowd well. Don't forget the free ice cream at the end.

A statue of a cow and a little girl stand right in front of the Bluebell factory [It's a bronze representation of the company logo]. Great for picture opportunities!

Old Timey Bluebell Creamery

This old-fashioned creamery offers tour with free samples at the end. This is the best ice cream in the world! It is just off highway 290 in Brenham, halfway between Austin and Houston. There is a small charge for the tour.
