What happened to Kimball’s Farm in Jaffrey, NH?

Kimball’s Farm has always been a family favorite for years, and once they opened up for the summer, my dad would always take us down there, at least two or three times a month. When my dad was growing up as a little boy, his dad used to take him to the Kimball’s in Westford, MA when they only had a few ice cream stalls that were open. He’d always share stories with us where his parents would buy one Kimball special shared amongst six kids. It was huge and very delicious! When my father settled in NH, he was delighted to find a Kimball’s in Jaffrey. For years, we enjoyed going to Kimball’s. The food was delicious and the ice cream was fantastic. Sadly, we went to Kimball’s for the first time this season, and I’m not sure what happened. We ordered the seafood platter, chicken strips and a Kimball special. It was quite disappointing. The quality of the food was horrible, and the seafood platter was nothing like last year. The seafood platter and the chicken strips came to $41.00. I’m not even sure it was worth that price. The chicken strips were virtually inedible, and the Kimball special was our greatest disappointment. Hot fudge that wasn’t hot, and ice cream that an 8-year-old wouldn’t even touch. Can you imagine that an 8 year old would not gobble down ice cream? I should note I thought it was kind of strange that the parking lot was almost half empty on a hot Saturday afternoon in July. In the past, there were cars parking along the side of the road because the parking lot was overflowing. I hope this was just a bad day for them, and that the quality and the atmosphere is restored. Please feel free to comment on any of your visits and let me know if I should give it another chance.

Country Spirit Restaurant and Tavern is a family owned bar and grille located in Henniker, NH right off Route 202 highway. Customers have the option to sit in the dining room, the tavern, or outside on the covered patio on a nice day. The food is reasonably priced and they have great service. They have a raw bar and is well known for their Oyster Rockefeller appetizer and prime rib dinners, which are delicious. They offer a variety steaks, pasta, seafood and specials. They have a tavern menu, lunch menu as well as a dinner menu. For the main course, my favorite was the tavern steak tips served with mashed potatoes, and for dessert, I enjoyed the double chocolate cheesecake. Best cheesecake I’ve had in a while. I definitely recommend trying it. Finally, customers who go to Country Spirits will find the atmosphere very comfortable, with rope lighting, a variety of seating options, and an outdoor patio area if you bring your dog. The service is always good everytime I go. I haven’t tried their brunch yet, which they offer on Sunday’s from 10 am-2 pm.
