Our ice cream company has roots in the past, based on time-honored traditions and strong family values. We are held to a high standard of quality by the hundreds of customers who've known us for over 60 years. That's a tradition not many ice cream companies can claim! Our heritage goes back to a time when handmade ice cream blended with all natural ingredients packed a happy kid's cone for only five cents a scoop. It was 1947 when Jim Strickland opened the Old Meeting House restaurant just 2 blocks north of the world famous Bern's Steak House. Inside, he made delicious, handmade all-natural ice cream in carefully controlled batches in a five-gallon Emery Thompson batch freezer. Local folks made special trips to Old Meeting House just to have ice cream.
