How It's Made: Organic Lavender

There's nothing better than the sweet aromatic fragrance lavender brings. The distinct sensory smell that evokes a feeling of calm and tranquility is often associated with your favorite soaps, lotions, and essential oils... but ice cream? We've got that part covered. 

In light of National Organic month, we wanted to give the full scoop on how we carefully craft one of our most popular (and favorite) flavors.

You always know when lavender is being made in our production plant because the fragrant smell  floods the entire building. We take organic lavender buds from Provence and steep it in hot organic cream for four hours. The lavender infused cream is then strained creating the base of our Snoqualmie Organic Lavender.

Lavender ice cream doesn't sound the most appealing when you relate it to your body wash or hand soap. We know. But it says something when lavender is in the top 3 of our best selling flavors for both our organic and conventional lines. When it comes to our Snoqualmie Organic Lavender, you either hate it or you love it - there's rarely an in-between. All we ask is you try it and find out for yourself :) 

Raise a pint to National Organic Month

It's National Organic Month and we're proud to have created the highest quality organic ice cream for everyone to enjoy. The process of creating Snoqualmie Organic took almost 2 years of careful planning and meticulous crafting to create a product that we could stand behind with integrity. We felt it was important to create this line without compromising the taste, texture, quality, and price to our consumer - even if that meant the cost for us would be higher. To us, it was more than worth it.

We feel like we have a responsibility to our customers and our environment. As a certified B-Corp, it's baked into Snoqualmie Ice Cream's DNA. Consuming organic is not a trend but a lifestyle that reflects the same values that we have as a company. It's healthier for our bodies and healthier for our planet; that is something we back 100%. Buying organic truly promotes a ripple effect of good in the world and it all starts with you. When you purchase organic, every dollar you spend says YES to enhancing soil and water quality, bettering natural habitats, conserving agricultural biodiversity, and supporting local organic farmers. Each pint of Snoqualmie Organic is comprised of high-quality certified organic ingredients that were produced the way nature intended to - free of toxic chemicals from synthetic fertilizers, harmful pesticides, antibiotics, added growth hormones, or GMO's. They say you are what you eat, and we want to make sure our customers are fueling their bodies with all-natural ingredients rather than polluting them with chemical by-products. 

When you purchase organic, everyone wins. Lets raise a pint of Snoqualmie Organic and give a cheers to all of the organic farmers and manufacturers for being striving to be better for the world.
