Farmstead Gelato and Sorbetto
For the uninitiated, gelato is Italian style ice cream. The main differences between gelato and American style ice cream are 1) less air and 2) less fat. What does this mean: a healthier product and more intense flavors. We use our goat milk to make the milk based flavors and all local fruits for the sorbettos (water-based gelato). We have perfected our recipes to provide you with pure, unadulterated flavors. In fact, the goat milk results in a really creamy and smooth texture. Stewart Pequinot (of Stewart's Artisan Breads) helps us develop recipes and spins the gelato each week.
We make a variety of flavors each week including Madagascar bourbon vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut.
We try to incorporate as much of our own fruits and herbs into the ever changing flavors. Infusions of chocolate mint, Thai basil and lemon verbena - thyme are several of our herbal flavors. Peaches and blackberries incorporate our own home-grown organic fruits. Any additional flavors are sourced locally from farms and farmers that we are proud to support.
We sell our gelati and sorbetti by the pint each week at the outdoor Urbana Farmers' Market, May thru November, Saturdays from 7-12. Also during our afternoon On Farm Sales, dates and times for the 2013 season, coming soon. At the On Farm Sales, we offer the week’s flavors by the scoop or the pint. You can enjoy your treat at the farm or take it to go!
