Today in the Pure Joy kitchen we are making our first ever batch using hydroponically grown mint! For years we’ve grown our own mint, received clippings from friends, worked with some small local herb producers and when none of those worked we would be forced on occasion to order from out of state producers. While we’ve always figured out a way to make it work, we’ve always desired a more consistent, year round source for locally grown fresh high quality mint leaves. Earlier this year it hit us that hydroponics might be a good option. Thanks to Jamie for being willing to try something new in his beautiful grow house! Come by our shop in #downtownsiloamsprings today to take in the wonderful smell of fresh mint! #realicecream #locallygrown #arkansasgrown #nwafoodie #nwarkansas #tasteslikepurejoy #crafticecream #bentonvillear #siloamsgotit
Warning ⚠️ the consumption of #purejoyicecream can cause overwhelming feelings of happiness which may lead to kissing 💋 😘 #ConsumeAtYourOwnRisk #ConsumeCarefully #realicecream #crafticecream #nwafoodie #nwarkansas
We hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the residents of Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma eat more #purejoyicecream #realicecream #purejoyscoopshop
There are so many reasons why we love sourcing ingredients for our ice cream and sorbet from local producers and growers, but by far our favorite reason is because of the relationships we build with people and the chances we get to learn about what makes the ingredients taste amazing and getting to visit places like @opossumhollowproduce. Tom and Cheryl can be found every Saturday morning at the @siloam_farmersmarket and their produce is always 🙌🙌🙌! Get to know your local growers and producers. Most of them really do love what they do and are producing amazing stuff!
