Old school milk delivery gets a sweet face lift with the launch of MILKMADE: homemade, hand-delivered, small-batch ice cream with a focus on local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients.

Meet the founders, or shall we say, “milk maids” Diana Hardeman and Michelle Truong as they meticulously create and prepare their two December flavors, in their newly rented commercial kitchen space, for the launch of their ice cream enthusiasts club in New York City.

As they say, this may not be the most efficient way to run a business – by hand making ice cream and delivering it on foot to homes of eager ice cream lovers in Manhattan. But, they wouldn’t want it any other way. To them, it’s more than just churning ice cream, it’s all about making new friends, inventing unheard-of-flavors and creating a product with lots of “TLC”…

And you gotta admit, we all do scream a little bit for ice cream, no?
