Don’t Scream For Ice Cream

At least not yet, and maybe not forever, in the Great Brook Farm State Park in Massachusetts.  The environmental police recently closed the business citing no permit additions to the building housing the business.

CARLISLE — Looking to hit the spot with a savory ice cream at Great Brook Farm State Park this week?

You may be out of luck.

The park’s popular ice-cream stand was unexpectedly shut down by state officials over the weekend, after the stand’s operator made building improvements at the site without getting permission first.

Mark Duffy, who has operated the dairy farm at the state-owned park for 26 years and has a lease with the state to run the stand, said armed Environmental Police officers showed up at stand on Friday evening and stood guard throughout the weekend, turning away customers craving delectable sundaes and frappes.
