Kiss the Cow Ice Cream
Kiss the Cow ice cream is a farmstead, super-premium ice cream made on the farm in small batches using our own grass-grown organic cream and milk and eggs from our hens.
Our exceptional ice cream owes its outstanding flavor and texture from local, organic, and seasonal ingredients, all of which combine to create a creamy, flavorful ice cream that you're sure to love.
We love watching people as they taste our ice cream for the first time. You can see their smile grow as the ice cream melts on their tongue and the flavors start to burst, then meld harmoniously into a sensation that makes them exclaim “Oh my God. That’s good. Okay, that’s really good.”
That’s the experience we want to give people.

How We Make Our Ice Cream
Making a batch of ice cream takes two days.
On Day 1, we run the raw milk from the bulk tank through the cream separator. Cream and skim milk go into separate, 5-gallon milk cans. These are transported to the creamery.
Next we run the vat-pasteurizer, cooking the blend of organic milk, organic cream, organic sugar, organic skim milk powder and eggs at 175°. This takes about 5 hours.
Then the mix is rapidly cooled before being moved to the walk-in fridge, where it continues to cool overnight down to about 40°.
The cooling and aging period enhances the taste as the mixture is allowed to sit for about 24 hours.
On Day 2 we churn the base, adding mix-ins as the semi-soft ice cream comes out of the churn.
Each one-gallon batch takes about 10 minutes. The ice cream is then hand-packed in boxes for scooping or into pints, labeled and placed into the freezer to harden. This takes about 3 hours.
Naturally, we conduct lots of quality control tests to ensure only the best ice cream possible!
Next the ice cream is placed in our farmstore freezer to be sold to anyone who stops by. You can also find our ice cream at local farmers markets.
