pardon the drips while we do some updates


we make ice cream.

The Penny Ice Creamery is the only ice cream shop in Santa Cruz making delicious ice cream completely from scratch in house. Our flavors change with the seasons, and feature locally farmed and organic ingredients.

Local.

The Penny Ice Creamery works with dozens of local farmers, foragers and food artisans such as Route 1 Farms, Dirty Girl Produce and Ortiz Family Farms to create flavors that reflect our agroecology and our community.

Seasonal.

We maintain close contacts with dozens of local farmers who provide us with straight-from-the-field tips on what is in season and deliver their products at the height of flavor and freshness.

Sustainable.

100% organic dairy, organic unrefined cane sugar, organic egg yolks. We make our ice cream completely from scratch sourcing each ingredient individually (no premade bases or mixes here!). And we are proud to work with the finest purveyors in the industry such as American Humane Certified Clover Sonoma.

Don't just take our word for it.
