MilkMade is a craft ice cream business located in New York City, founded in 2009.
We offer premium ice creams in the most inventive flavors. Every batch is made from scratch using the finest, responsibly produced ingredients from local farms and other food artisans in our community. We pack each pint by hand in our factory in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn - which happens to be the smallest ice cream plant in NYC.
I started MilkMade out of my desire for a better pint. After years of buying a pint a night from my local bodega, I was left increasingly unsatisfied. Pints had shrunk, the ice cream was no longer natural, and flavors were not exciting anymore.
So I took matters into my own hands. In the summer of 2009, I bought a small home ice cream machine, got in touch with local farms, and started crafting my "dream 'screams" – ice cream flavors that I had only dreamed about. Like any good secret, word got out. Stories were published, a waitlist sprang up, and I quickly realized I wasn’t the only one who wanted a better pint.
MilkMade officially launched a few months later, in December of 2009, pioneering the New York food movement, defining the craft ice cream market, and building the first model for food subscription services. With the help of the Milkmaids, I slowly grew the Membership, expanding our ice cream delivery neighborhood by neighborhood in NYC, and to eventually serve thousands of Members across the country. We opened a scoop shop in Brooklyn which ran from 2015-2019.
In November of 2019, MilkMade will close its doors after ten years in business. It is time to see what else is out there! I am forever grateful for the support and enthusiasm that we have received throughout the years. YOURS FOREVER IN ICE CREAM.
