We get our ingredients fresh every week from local dairy farms, and produce the ice cream right here in our store!

Our fearless leader, Brett, has been making ice cream for the last 30 years, and he's been creating amazing flavors at FRESH. Local Ice Cream since 2011. Originally from New York, Brett now lives in North Carolina, and his mission is to provide everyone in Raleigh the freshest and most delicious local ice cream possible.

Cow to Cone.

“The ice-cream base comes from Jackson Dairy farm in Dunn, a small all-natural dairy that delivers daily. And that’s how Hillman makes the ice cream: daily. A scoop of his famous ‘Peanut Butter Cup” in its recyclable container is usually only hours old.”

Walter Magazine

 

Best in Raleigh.

“Love the coconut almond crunch ice cream. It's like eating a frozen Almond Joy. They also make milk shakes from any ice cream they have. Yum!”

The Hormone Free Scoop.

"One evening, I stopped by FRESH for dessert. This [Chocolate Orange] ice cream was wonderfully dark, creamy, and rich. It was similar to FRESH’s double chocolate flavor, but this version had an extra bit of delicate orange essence in each bite."

As Fresh & Local As It Gets.

“If it's fresh and local you're yearning for, Wild Blueberry or Watermelon should do the trick."
