Why do we have 2 different brands of ice cream?
Our one producer that makes our ice cream is called Willow Run Dairy and the other one is called Narvon Natural Acres.
They are both close to our area and both use special ingredients such as grass-fed raw cream and milk and grass-fed soy-free eggs. The main difference is the ingredients. As you should see, Willow Run uses raw honey for sweetener, and Narvon Natural uses maple syrup for sweetener.
The other bigger difference is Willow Run has a heavier cream content. Some people like it where others don’t as much. With the heavier cream content, eating ice cream may be more like eating butter because of its fat content, which nutrition wise is ideal, but for the pleasure of eating ice cream for a dessert it might not be as ideal. We’ll let you be the judge of which one you like.
The other big factor here is what we found out. The Willow Run ice cream travels better in transit when being shipped, because of the heavy cream content, whereas the other has less cream which will lead to quicker melting. Some flavors may not be available from both farms, such as our pumpkin cheesecake, which is seasonal and is only made by Narvon Natural Acres.
