Farmstead Ice Cream
Here at Wright's we make farmstead ice cream.
Farmstead is a term used most commonly in cheese making. A farmstead cheese is made on farm with the milk from the cows that live there. Our ice cream is made on farm with the milk and cream produced from our cows. The entire process takes two days.
On the first the day we make the ice cream base. The base consistency is somewhere between heavy cream and vanilla pudding. The ice cream base is cooked in 30 gallon batches in a large kettle in the bakery. Once the mix has reached a temperature of 170 degrees it is poured into stainless steel containers and rapidly chilled. The chilled mix is put in the cooler over night to 'age'. Aging the mix allows the flavor to fully develop before churning.
Day two the mix is put into our Emery Thompson ice cream maker. The ice cream maker churns 3 gallons of mix at a time and takes about 14 minutes per batch. When it comes out of the machine it has a consistency of soft serve. It is quickly hand scooped into individual containers and packed into our freezer where it finishes hardening. Day two of ice cream making usually happens on Thursday between 2-7pm. From the viewing area in the cake shop you can see it coming right out of the machine. Feel free to ask for a sample!

Ice Cream Sandwiches
Naturally the best thing we could do with our delicious ice cream is sandwich it between fresh baked cookies.
We offer over 6 varieties, some of which change seasonally.
Pop-Up Scoop Shop
In 2017 we hosted 5 Pop-Up Scoop Shops in June to celebrate Dairy Month.
We don't have the space for a full fledged ice cream parlor so we had to get creative by turning our cake shop into a scoop shop. Pop-Up refers to the shop being temporary and is an idea often used by restaurants to trial new ideas and menu items. Needless to say they were a huge success so we're bringing them back and expanding the schedule! Every Friday (June through August 2018) from 3-7pm the Cake Shop will turn into an ice cream parlor. We will feature 4 different ice cream flavors, a variety of sundaes and ice cream sandwiches.
