Why's It So Good

We at Lumpy’s Ice Cream believe authentic ingredients make the best ice cream. That’s why we are committed to using full-flavored, all-natural ingredients purchased from local producers who take pride in their work.

Our hormone-free milk and cream, which are central to each perfect pint, come from family farms within 30 miles of our production table called ‘The Lumpy’s Lab’. We combine that milk and cream with sugar or honey for a simple, made-from-scratch ice cream base that contains no artificial colorings, flavors, or corn short, we put in the ingredients that make ice cream delicious and leave out those that don’t.

Every scoop of Lumpy’s Ice Cream delivers fresh, authentic flavor and flawless texture…and makes you - Just a Scoop Away from a Smile!™
