One day back in September 2009

Back in Sept 2009, Veronica and I had the idea to create an ice cream company.  Needless to say there was lots to figure out to do that – perfecting recipes (fun), figuring out permitting (not fun!), determining where to get all the right ingredients (hard), determining how much would it cost to produce our ideal ice creams (harder), etc., etc.  This list could go on and fill an entire page, but we’ll spare you those details.  However, one particular element of our efforts to research and launch the business has always stood out as a memorable moment – our visit with the Local Forager at Whole Foods River Street Cambridge that one day back in Sept 2009.

We’d heard that each Whole Foods had a Local Forager – someone who was tasked with finding locally made or grown products and bringing those into their specific store.  As Whole Foods River Street was the store that we actually shopped at ourselves, we naturally wanted to speak with their forager about our idea.

We both remember walking together with the forager over to their ice cream section where we then talked about our idea and how it all worked with getting a product in the store.  As we stood there and discussed this all with the forager, we looked around at all the ice cream shelves and envisioned the day that we would be on one of those shelves.

Well, that day has come.  We are happy to announce that we are now available in that very Whole Foods.
