Here, on California’s Central Coast, we’re fortunate to have as our neighbors some of the finest ingredients puveyors in the country.
Many of our partners are the very ones Mac worked with from the beginning; decades-old, multi-generational, family businesses, whose standards for their own products are as demandingly high as our own. In fact, some of our partnerships run to over fifty years!
Supporting local farms, ranches and orchards is built into McConnell's Fine Ice Creams' DNA. Year-round access to ingredients such as grass-grazed milk & cream, farmer's market organic fruits and nuts, leading coffee roasters, craft brewers and distillers (the list goes on and on...) is critical to everything we do; we never take it for granted.
As a dairy, sustaining these food systems and supporting our partners' communities is key to every decision we make at McConnell's.
