Izzy's Ice Cream is a local Minnesota company that makes artisan ice cream by hand at its Minneapolis kitchen with a team of ten employees. Izzy's uses cream from a fifth-generation, family-owned, award-winning creamery: Lamer's Dairy out of Appleton, Wisconsin. About eight family farms produce the milk for the dairy. Husband and wife co-owners Jeff Sommers and Lara Hammel founded Izzy's in 2000 with the mission to make high-quality ice cream and bring a joyful experience to families in their St. Paul neighborhood. Izzy's, now a local ice cream manufacturer, stays true to its mission by sourcing the best ingredients and partnering with some of Minnesota's best local craft food producers. Pints are available at their two shops in Minneapolis and St. Paul and at local grocers and food co-ops. Try Izzy's flavors, such as Summit Oatmeal Stout (made with beer brewed at Summit Brewery in St. Paul) or Maple Nut (made with Wild Country maple syrup out of Lutsen, Minnestoa). Izzy's has even partnered with local rap artist Dessa to produce her signature flavor, Dessa's Existential Crunch, available at both shops. Purchasing Izzy's ice cream pints goes a long way to support local workers and businesses.
