If you want a great factory tour to take your kids, parents and Grandparents on then this it. We have taken the Blue Bell Factory Tour in Brenham, TX many times in the past 35 years. It is fascinating to watch the machinery working from above. The tour is interesting for young and old alike. The tour takes about 45 minutes and ends at the Blue Bell Ice Cream Parlor with samples of your favorite ice cream flavors and gift shop You meet people who actually perform the jobs including one of my life long favorite jobs: ice cream tester for new possible Blue Bell flavors! Both children and adults can ask questions while on the tour.
When you end your Blue Bell Factory tour consider going on to see the Monastery of St. Clare Miniature Horse Farm run by in operation since 1981, is owned and operated by the Franciscan Poor Clare Nuns, close by in the Brenham area.
Note: The country drive to Brenham is magnificent in the early Spring when Texas Bluebells are blooming. There are also many quaint shops to visit near the County Court House on the main square in Brenham, TX.
