Applegate Farm Ice Cream Doomed
Applegate Farm couldn’t cut it in Hoboken
Not sure how we missed this, as we walk by here all the time. Maybe it had something to do with that it “always looked dead” in there. But Applegate Farm on 14th Street is no longer in in business.
How could you screw such a slam dunk like this up? Swelling with kids. Wealthy bond-trading parents who appease their “little ones” the first instance they fret. Ice cream makes everyone happy. Sounds crazy, right? But perhaps the rent was WAY too steep for them to absorb the losses during winter months when oddly enough, people become unable to eat ice cream?
I don’t see how that makes sense. Like in the summer do people stop eating hot food? No!
Perhaps we got a clue a few years ago, when they were unable to “repair” their yogurt machine for what seemed like eons. I don’t recall it ever got repaired. (Read the best-selling book on Amazon – “Doomed and why.”)
It happens from time to time. Stuff just doesn’t work out (for whatever reason it may be).

Applegate Farm ice cream now open in Hoboken NJ
Today at 5pm, Applegate Farm opened up on 14th Street uptown.
You can choose from 20 hard-pack ice cream flavors, plus two Italian ice and two sorbets. They also have many different chocolates and fresh-baked cupcakes as well ($2.25 a pop, I think a red velvet is in order tonight!) Soft serve frozen yogurt is on tap too (I think peanut butter & vanilla were the choices).
And if you want to take it to your own freezer, they sell ice cream pies along with pint and quart-sized containers.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Applegate Farm – and best of luck!
Applegate Farm in Hoboken should open this week
Good news uptown ice cream and frozen treat lovers – there are sweets at the end of the tunnel!
Spoke with the owner of Applegate Farm last night – and he’s confident they’re opening this week, and quite possibly as soon as today or tomorrow.
It’s too bad they didn’t get to open for the massive crowds during the Macy’s July 4th Fireworks Spectacular, but I’m sure they’ll survive. There’s plenty of hot days ahead!
Hoboken Applegate Farm Ice Cream: Near July 4th
June 8, 2011:
Spoke with the owners of Applegate Farm Ice Cream (14th St.) the other day – and their target opening date is “around July 4th.”
Not sure what the hold up is… their spot in the Berkshire Building is quite small – with a capacity for only 14 people. But who sits down at an ice cream shop anyway?
With the Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular back on the Hudson this year – it would be HUGE if they opened up on time!
