The folks at family-owned Velvet Ice Cream in Utica, Ohio (about 50 minutes northeast of downtown Columbus) invited me out for a tour, ice cream tasting, and lunch at Ye Olde Mill, where the operation is housed. For the past 103 years, Velvet Ice cream has been run by the Dager family – that’s 4 generations of ice cream knowledge and experience.
 
Ye Olde Mill is a destination within itself. Tours are available, there’s of course the ice cream, a restaurant with lots of options, and several outdoor areas to explore. (You know, just in case delicious ice cream isn’t enough to draw you to quaint Utica!)
 
Enjoy the photos below – but make the trip if you really want to enjoy the ice cream. If you’d like to stay in the confines of 270, just head to a local shop that carries Velvet Ice Cream or even Mirror Lake Creamery & Grill next time you’re visiting Ohio State.

Apparently it's a lot of work to make the perfect batch of ice cream.
