About Us

Paul - Pazzo Marco Creamery - Artisan Gelato and Artisan CheeseMarco - Pazzo Marco Creamery - Artisan Gelato and Artisan Cheese

We make gelato the old fashioned way. We pick up farm fresh Jersey Cows milk from a local organic dairy during the morning milking. The milk is still warm when it arrives at our creamery. To the milk, fresh in-season ingredients are added such as farm fresh free range eggs and cream. Our vanilla gelato is made with pure vanilla bean and fresh Mascarpone cheese. 80% dark chocolate is used in our Chocolate Gelato. We source only the best Pistacchios and Hazelnuts from a selected Italian purveyor.  Our batches are small – No more than five liters at a time is made in our small batch freezer. This affords us to give a lot of love and attention to our product which we feel you deserve.  We then pack it by hand and deliver it in an all-electric vehicle to our customers.

Our passion is making the best Artisan Gelato and Artisan Cheese.  We believe that our journey is to keep making it better. We hope you notice the difference.
