We dream in ice cream! We’re scooping our creamy goodness offering a complete dairy bar with dreamy treats including; cones, sundaes, milkshakes & frozen yogurt.

We are located just outside of Peterborough, Ontario, one kilometre West of Chemong Road on the Lindsay Highway. You can’t miss the bright red roof!

In 1896, Central Smith was founded first as a farmer’s co-op. The “factory” produced quality cheese and butter from the milk supplied by local dairy farmers. In 1952, Central Smith began exclusive production of premium ice cream. In 1978, the Scates family purchased Central Smith, gradually developing a variety of sherbets, frozen yogurts, dietetic ice cream, and frozen desserts.

Today, we ship coast to coast through our distribution network. We work hard to ensure that we are always offering our customers an exceptional product and experience. Visit our factory outlet! In winter for wholesale only and in the summer, come join us for a cone!

We’ve been scooping our creamy goodness since 1979, when we opened a small window at the factory door. We now offer a complete dairy bar with dreamy treats including; cones, sundaes, milkshakes, and frozen
yogurt. Or take home some Central Smith ice cream, in 4-litre and 1.89-litre containers.

Contact us today to see if we can make your ‘ice cream dream’, a reality!
