About the campaign
Over the past year, our farm-to-cone organic ice cream shop has become a cornerstone of the Ballard neighborhood for foodies, families, and environmental enthusiasts. Now, we are growing to take on wholesale accounts, which means that soon, with your help, you will be able to get Parfait's amazing ice cream in your local grocery stores and favorite cafés! Help us raise funds to purchase the equipment needed to take this next step!
This funding will help take Parfait to the next level and transform our ice cream shop into a full-fledged, veritable ice creamery!
The funding from this campaign will enable us to purchase a vat pasteurizer and complete the WSDA's rigorous licensing programs for becoming a certified organic food processor. Our ice cream is already made from scratch using organic ingredients, but in order to offer it through wholesale, we need to purchase a vat pasteurizer. Additionally, getting our organic certification will make Parfait the one-and-only certified organic ice cream shop in the entire Pacific Northwest! As always, customers will be able to watch Parfait’s ice cream magic in the making through the wall of windows behind the counter of our beautiful, light-filled shop. It will all still be made right here in Ballard!
Parfait’s mission is to make organic ice cream that goes from the farm to the freezer, without a factory in between. We refuse to compromise in our commitment to organic and artisan food, despite the constant pressure to conform to the conventional, industrial standards embraced by most ice cream businesses. We think consumers deserve to have an option for true, unadulterated ice cream, made the old-fashioned way by people who care about taste, integrity, and craft. By expanding our scope to a larger audience, we can challenge the industrial ice cream norm with something more human and wholesome, one delicious hand-packed pint at a time. Will you help us get there?
