John Olive GlennieHeritage Farm Ice Cream & Restaurant was established in 1976. Prior to that, it was operated by John Glennie and his wife Olive from 1936 to 1974 as Glennies Ice Cream. John had several locations in Lowell. Along with the Pawtucket Blvd. store, he operated one on Gorham Street, and made his famous Belgium Cream Candies. When the Glennie family sold, it was eventually purchased by the Howard Family of Waltham, MA., who were also operating Dean Dairy Ice Cream from 1964 to 2005. Upon taking ownership of the Lowell store the name “Glennies” was changed to “Heritage Farm Ice Cream” to coincide with the building of the new Heritage State Park, along the Merrimack River, in 1974.

Since then it has been operated by Robert J Howard, Jr, who graduated Bentley College with a BS Degree in Business Management. After operating the stand from 1978 to 1989, Bob added on to the old take out place and turned it into a restaurant and ice cream stand with a dining room to accommodate 46 seats. Another addition was put on in 2008 and 40 more seats were added to the new fireside dining room, which allowed more space for catered events and family parties.

Heritage Farm Ice Cream & Restaurant Not only can you get great ice cream and food at Heritage Farm, we have been sponsoring free family entertainment across the street on the Sampas Pavilion Stage, and in our parking lot, every summer, for over 45 years.  Due to Covid restrictions, all activities at the Sampas Pavilion have been put on hold by the Governor and DCR State Parks for the 2022 season.

Heritage Farm Ice Cream & Restaurant has been very involved in the community, not only by the free events for families over the years but with many non profit organizations throughout the Greater Lowell area. Feel free to contact us on how we can help your organization with fundraising. We pride ourselves in helping maintain the integrity of our neighborhood and the greater community.
