- We produce ice cream in our small plant in Monroe, Maine. We use all natural; locally sourced milk & cream, sugar (never high fructose corn syrup), and natural flavorings and extracts, Maine fruit and maple syrup whenever possible. Our Carpigiani batch freezer was made in Bologna, Italy and makes 2½ gallons of ice cream in about 10 minutes. Our blast freezer quickly chills the ice cream down to -20°F so ice crystals don't form. Our overrun is small (the amount of air whipped into the mix) resulting in a rich and creamy ice cream treat. We also offer hot cocoa and brewed coffee in cold weather. Our ice cream can be purchased at Railroad Square Cinema and at Uncle Deans Good Groceries.
