WHITMAN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A popular place to get ice cream on the South Shore has reopened under new ownership.

The Peaceful Meadows Farm in Whitman, Mass. was always crowded with customers, serving ice cream for more than 50 years. The new owners made sure that the farm’s ice cream legacy lives on.

“It was very important, I wanted to be open before Thanksgiving. A lot of people relied on Peaceful Meadows for their holiday pies, eggnog and vanilla ice cream,” said owner John Hornstra.

Hornstra also owns Hornstra Farms in Norwell, Mass. and purchased Peaceful Meadows at an auction. After eight weeks of desperately needed renovations, they re-opened to customers on Monday.

“I’m just grateful for the customers that are true die-hards that stuck by us. I have a five-gallon bucket of thank you notes from everyone on the South Shore thanking us for buying this farm,” said Hornstra.

South Shore residents were initially disappointed with the news of Peaceful Meadows going up for auction, but are happy to see it re-opened for business, even with new ownership.

“I was worried when it was going up for sale that somebody was going to put condos here, so it’s nice to see that it’s staying a farmland and keeping going with tradition,” said one customer.

“[It’s a] beautiful thing. This is beautiful to come back to where it belongs,” said another customer.
