Once again, our ice cream vendor will be Ullery’s Homemade Ice-Cream located in Richmond, Indiana. Last year when our regular supplier when out of business, a search was started and we came very close to not having honey ice cream at the booth. Jerry Toschlog, one of our members from Centerville, hooked us up with Ullery’s and we’ve been very pleased with our relationship with them.
Tammy Ullery is a co-owner and was the primary contact for us. “We make different flavors all the time, but never one with honey. We were very excited to try one and without a recipe, we had to go by trial and error to get it right,” Tammy said. “Many or our local beekeepers became the testers.”
Last year we sold over 200 gallons and it wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donation of honey by Dave and Patti Barrickman, Gordon Fetters, Mike and Debbie Seib, and Brad and Judy Truax.
