Spring is here!

Friday April 25, Saturday April 26, and Sunday April 27 we will be at the Dogwood Arts Fest in downtown Knoxville!  Come see us on Union Ave near Gay Street!


We are so thankful Spring is here!  The cows are so happy to be bingeing on the new green grass!  The farmers are happy to have warm weather which makes us all want to work harder and eat more ice cream!
---------------------

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!


Every week we are at the New Harvest Farmers Market from 3-6pm!  It is located near Target by Knoxville Center!



We are so excited you can now get our ice cream by the scoop in Knoxville at Paleo Foods Cafe on Alcoa Hwy (located next to Court South)!

Our full time dairy queen McCall has been learning about the science of milk..she is applying for grad school (neuroscience)! She is a smart gal, and we will be sad to see her leave in the spring.

This year we said goodbye to Farm Girl Jaanki who has been a presence at the Market Square Farmers Market for 3 years! She is now in India preparing for her wedding which we are super excited about!



We use and love Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co.'s (in Nashville) chocolate for our ice cream and chocolate chips. 



We deliver every Tuesday and Friday to Knoxville and Maryville.

Summertime happenings on the farm

Many have emailed.. We don't have a store on the farm, but we are at the Market Square Farmers Market every Saturday from 9 till 2 pm serving buttermilk biscuits and ice cream and a glass of milk to wash it down. 

 

We've been enjoying a lot of rain recently which has cooled of the hot summer we are used to. This has been nice for the new calves being born.  



...and we've been churning lots of ice cream!!!!!!  New flavors this week: straciatella, wild mint chip, and the perennial late summer favorite, peaches n cream!
