Pazzo Marco Creamery Logo


Our gelato is made from scratch in small batches in our micro creamery. We begin with farm fresh, local, organic milk to which the best ingredients are added such as free range organic eggs, 80% dark Valrhona chocolate, hazelnuts from the Piedmonte region of Italy, California toasted almonds and pistacchio’s from Sicily. Our goal is that you will enjoy eating our gelato as much as we enjoy making it.

Cheese is milk’s leap toward immortality

Clifton Fadiman

Great cheese is made with great milk of happy cows eating a healthy diet of grass and local flora. There is something so fascinating how one ingredient, local fresh milk, can be transformed into something so varied, complex, unique and delicious.

We are excited to introduce Madrone Grove – our vision of an Alpine style cheese – capturing the natural flora of the south Mendocino Coast with buttery, nutty, and grassy flavors. Made with local organic milk. Aged 90 -120 days. Currently available at Surf Market in Gualala

Madrone Grove

Meet the newest edition to our family – L’Amitié (Friendship). This cousin of Camembert is made with local organic grass fed Jersey Cow’s milk. These delicious little rounds, when served at room temperature, project a complex array of grassy flora of our Mendocino Coast. Flavor: grass, mushroom and butter, slightly tangy. Great served with hard cider, Pommeau or a fruity sparkling wine.


Marco - Pazzo Marco Creamery
Pazzo Marco Creamery was created out of our passion for artisanal Italian gelato and traditional handcrafted artisanal cheese. The result is lovingly handcrafted gelato and cheese made in our micro creamery infused with natural local goodness. Our gelato is made from scratch in an old Italian tradition – from local farm fresh organic milk, cream and free range eggs.

We live, love and work in Gualala on the beautiful Mendocino Coast.
