Pazzo Marco Creamery Logo


Pazzo Marco gelato is made from scratch in small batches beginning with farm fresh, local, organic milk from grass-fed Jersey cows. The milk is picked up fresh from the farm just after milking time. We then add hand selected premium ingredients: free range cage-free organic eggs, 80% dark Valrhona chocolate, hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Italy, California toasted almonds and pistachio’s from Sicily, Suisun Valley peaches and apricots, Lake County Bartlett pears, Meyer lemons fresh from our garden, Sebastopol strawberries, and local huckleberry. Our goal is that you will enjoy eating our gelato as much as we enjoy making it.

Pazzo Marco Creamery Founder Marco Moramarco

We created Pazzo Marco Creamery out of our passion for local, natural and delicious wholesome food. Our small batch artisan gelato and cheese are crafted with local organic milk in our micro creamery on the ridge of the Mendocino Coast near the town of Gualala. We create all of our recipes to bring out the best in flavor and texture. We believe artisan food is truly handmade with scrupulous attention given to every detail. Our goal is to achieve a lovingly handcrafted product that delights the pallet – infused with love and natural local goodness.

Our Philosophy

  • Create premium products that delight the senses and that are nutritious and delicious.

  • Choose purveyors and merchants that share our values by supporting sustainable farming methods, fair trade, and care for our precious, natural resources, and the environment in which we live.
