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.

Ice Cream Sandwiches
Naturally the best thing we could do with our delicious ice cream is sandwich it between fresh baked cookies! When the cookie dough is made from scratch and so is the ice cream-you really can taste the difference!
We offer over 6 varieties, some of which change seasonally. The Classic, Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream, Chippidy Chocolate, Coffee Oreo, Cow Pie, Birthday Cake, The Classic with Coffee. Ice cream sandwiches are available in our retail store for purchase year-round!
Scoop Shop Trailer
In 2017 we hosted 8 'pop-up' ice cream shops in Wright's Dairy Farm and Bakery's Cake Shop. They were a huge hit so in 2018 we hosted a 'pop-up' every week during the summer. Building on that momentum we knew 2019 was the year to make the leap and invest in a stand-alone scoop shop. We purchased a 1966 Streamline trailer and had it fully renovated into an ice cream shop. Our trailer now serves as a full-time scoop shop each year (April-October).
