The Southern Churn stays true to the time-honored tradition of providing delicious treats in simple, friendly, down-home surroundings.

Timeless Taste

Located in the heart of Downtown Bristol, The Southern Churn specializes in delicious, freshly made ice cream with an old-fashioned, hand-cranked taste.

But that’s only a third of our story. We also make an incredible variety of fudge on premises. Of course, we stay true to our old-fashioned roots, using only REAL cream and butter! Come visit us often- we are always adding new flavors!

If you are craving a little salt to go with your sweet tooth, we have a variety of freshly roasted nuts for you to enjoy!

Whether you need to cool off on a hot summer afternoon with some ice cream or Southern iced tea or fuel up with some fudge, fresh roasted nuts, and candy for a long day of shopping in Downtown Bristol, come by and see us!


The Southern Churn makes our fudge on premises using natural cream and butter.
