What we're passionate about


    We've been passionately and pridefully crafting homemade ice cream in Lincoln, Nebraska since 2017. Each batch is made by hand using only quality, locally-sourced ingredients. After spending hours perfecting each recipe, we are proud to bring you (and your belly) a delicious experience that can't be found anywhere else.


    Collaborating is one of our favorite things to do. We source our lavender and honey from local farms, espresso from our favorite coffee shops, toffee & chocolate from local confectioners, and so much more! If we aren't making it in our own kitchen, we're sourcing with other local businesses who share the same passion for quality ingredients as we do.


    We know ice cream brings joy to a lot of people, and we want to make sure every experience with our ice cream is special. Building a space where friends, family, or strangers can come together over their favorite scoop (or two).


    We believe in growing our business through community involvement. We strive to bring positive, measurable change to our community through donations, fundraisers, local events, and more. We love you, Lincoln!
