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.
