The owner of Cowhaus Creamery is Joe Bomback and he is an Oberlin College Alumni from Lorain County. He and his wife Debbie (who is from Shaker Heights) love Oberlin and it was their goal to be involved in the community and so they decided to open up Cowhaus Creamery. 

Tracy Calabro, General Manager, explained that Cowhaus Creamery is local artisan ice cream.  Unlike store bought ice cream, their products are mostly handmade except for the machine used to create the variety of  ice cream flavors. While store bought ice cream is anywhere from 2 months to a year old by the time it reaches the shelves, Cowhaus always serves fresh ice cream, with some made within a few days of being served to customers.  In addition, Cowhaus ice cream contains only 7 ??? 12 ingredients, while grocery store ice cream has as many as 18 ??? 50 ingredients of which many are very difficult to pronounce.  Prices at Cowhaus Creamery range from $3.50 a scoop in a cone or cup to $8.50 for a pint of ice cream.  The pints are all hand packed as well.

All of the employees in the store have contributed to the ice cream served at Cowhaus Creamery.  The employees assist by either helping make the ice cream or suggesting a new flavor.  In fact, Joe and Debbie will consider new flavor suggestions from customers as well.  Isn???t that cool?

All new flavors are introduced on their Facebook page so stay tuned. Cowhaus Creamery is one of the finalists for the ???Best of Lorain County.??? The winners of this countywide competition will be announced in the Fall Edition of Pulse Magazine. Everyone should visit Cowhaus Creamery on a regular basis because there are always new flavors, especially with the changing of the seasons. So stop by and say ???hello??? to Tracy and ask for a free tasting sample of flavors so you can decide on which flavor that week is your favorite!  And if you don???t see it, perhaps suggest something and maybe you???ll walk in and see your suggested flavor featured that week!
