Stewart and Nita Taylor purchased the Ice Cream business from the Italian Ricci family in 1968, and during the next 46 years, they have built a formidable reputation for their Original Italian Vanilla Ice Cream. Although many changes have been made since those early days, the Taylors were determined to continue using the recipes and traditional high standards of their predecessors, and this is still true today. Milk is delivered daily to the production unit from local farms, and great care is taken always to source only the purest natural ingredients.
