Garver Feed Mill

Garver Feed Mill location now open!

Over five years after our first meeting with the developers, our scoop shop and small production facility is open at Garver Feed Mill on the east side of Madison. Look for us inside the Ian’s Pizza there, where we’ll have 12 stationary flavors (five from our friends at the always-amazing Madison favorite Chocolate Shoppe and the seven Calliope flavors available at grocery stores) and up to four rotating flavors that we’ll make on-site based on what’s in season, what sounds interesting, how the planets are aligned, and who wants to collaborate with us.

As of October 6, 2021: House-made, small-batch flavors in the rotating ice cream window are: Concord Grape Sorbet / Mango Pickled Habanero Sorbet / Campari Grapefruit Sorbet / Gorgonzola Pear Ice Cream
