We think we are unique, because we use the most traced milk in New Zealand from a farm that is leading the world of research in terms of farming for the future. We craft this uniqueness into Gelato, not as common as ice cream around this neck of the woods, but we are proud to be different, or what we say - unique.
“THE MOST MONITORED FARM IN THE WORLD WITH RESPECTS TO GREEN HOUSE GASES.”
WE HAVE THE
BIOLOGICALLY, sustainably, ethically FARMED JERSEY HERD & USE their FRESH WHOLE MILK.
WE HAVE THE
CREAMERY WHERE WE HAND CRAFT
& BATCH MAKE OUR PRODUCT.
WE HAVE THE
ETHICAL & AWARD WINNING FLAVOUR THAT MAKES US THE BETTER CHOICE.
Our journey has seen us acquire many fruits for our labour, one of them being at the 2017 New Zealand Ice Cream Awards. The Crème de la Crème of two categories, plus multiple golds and silvers. When it comes to flavour, it’s all about keeping it simple and we didn’t have to venture far with the key ingredient produced from Ben and Sarah's very own Jersey Herd. It was our Velluto Blueberry Yoghurt Gelato that stole the judges taste-buds, taking out the Best in Category and Gold for the Gelato category, arguably becoming the best Gelato of the land. We now to date have a total count of 16 medals and hopefully still counting.
