Here’s the lo-down!
What Makes our ice cream different?
We use only the highest quality, grass fed, organic milk and cream from the happy cows at Pure Eire Dairy.
We pick the most delicious ingredients from farmers who prioritize organic and sustainable practices—and believe that the freshness of local ingredients just makes our ice creams taste better!
Because our dairy is not over processed and we don't use loads of unrecognizable stabilizers, Sweet Annie's Ice Cream is more wholesome—and more perishable than commercial brands.
We also source locally or make all of our mix-ins by hand, giving it a truly homemade. Our ice cream will stay creamy longer (a couple months) if air is kept off the surface with a little parchment or saran wrap.
We make our ice cream in the Philadelphia Style, which does not require eggs.
Eggs may be present from time to time in our mix-ins, though, so if you have an allergy, please ask before ordering. We also cannot guarantee against nut or soy allergens.
Hi, I'm Annie!
I believe in the ability of food to transport us, inspire us, and produce joy from the inside out.
Before moving back home to the Northwest, I worked as a Graphic Artist in New York City for almost a decade. It was there that I really learned to eat—and to appreciate the local fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, and dairy products brought to the city from the Hudson Valley.
For a year, I dedicated myself to eating seasonally and locally—introducing myself to foods I'd never seen before by trying to cook them myself. For the first time ever, I understood what it meant to eat with the seasons. I discovered that when my diet followed the seasons, I was more connected to my food and my place. I realized fully the delicious difference between what is grown with care, and what is grown at mass scale.
Back home in the Northwest, I've been inspired to explore what our community farmers can offer, and how those foods can be translated into joyful experiences through ice cream. I started Sweet Annie's Artisan Creamery to have a delicious adventure, and I sincerely hope you'll join me!
