#CLEfood: Sweet Treats at Cowhaus Creamery

I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of Cowhaus Creamery back at a Lorain County Chamber of Commerce meetings a few years ago. The husband and wife pair were so kind, so funny and so enthusiastic about ice cream. And as we all scream for ice cream in our household, visiting their storefront in downtown Oberlin has been on my #CLEfood to-do list since that summer morning when I first discovered their company. A few Saturdays ago – the same day we went to Brasee’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch – we made the quick, less-than-ten-minute drive north from the farm to their fun shop right on the college campus.

Cowhaus creates and produces all of their products out of a repurposed 2,600 square foot artisan creamery in nearby Elyria. Their “flag ship” retail shop is sustainably designed and LEED’S Gold certified, but the uber green-friendly structure doesn’t take away from Cowhaus’ charm. 
With so many options to choose from – including ice creams, sorbets, milk shakes, sundaes, floats, riffs, ice cream sandwiches, Boylan’s sodas and fresh made waffle cones – we had a very hard time deciding what to order. Cowhaus’ creative combinations had us trying a few samples before making our selections.

B went with the “world’s smallest sundae” — the photo right above gives you a feel for how little this really is! My little bear got hers with vanilla ice cream with a bit of chocolate sauce and a cherry on top. I think she could have eaten three of them as hers was gone pretty fast!

As for me: I’m a sucker for all things ginger ale and The West Wing, so I opted for their Bartlett pear and ginger ale sorbet. If we weren’t going elsewhere before calling it a day, I would have insisted on bring some home to enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Both options were delicious, unique and even had a way of even tasting locally handcrafted. One visit won me over! Every time I’ll be in Lorain County in the future, I’ll be making the trip to Cowhaus Creamery for good eats, a friendly environment and that warm and fuzzy feeling that supporting a local business provides.

Visit Cowhaus Creamery in person at 55 East College Street in downtown Oberlin or online at their website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
