RESULTS ARE IN: 4th of July – Ice Cream & Pie!

On Sunday we had approximately 75 folks who shared their 4th of July with us at Bee Heaven Farm. We got to sample ice creams and sorbets from 3 of our local ice cream producers  – ranging from commercial ice cream, to a custom small-batch goat’s milk ice cream, to a ‘homemade’ producer. Common to all is that they’re all Redland farmers, and they all use local ingredients (Redland-grown fruit) for their creations. However, they differ significantly in their techniques and their added ‘touches’, and it was great fun to sample and compare/contrast them.

Here’s the flavors we sampled.
