Forming relationships with our growers, farmers and producers is a huge part of the Sweet Magnolia approach to gelato. We find the best ingredients in the South—whether that’s cream from grass-fed cows, honey harvested by hand, or the very ripest fruits and herbs—so we can deliver the best ice cream to you. Check out where we get what ends up in your gelato bowl.
Espresso Beans • Jackson, MS
Beanfruit Coffee Co. is the only Fair Trade Certified coffee roaster in Mississippi. They support farms that focus on sustainability, which makes us proud to support them.
Organic Milk and Cream • Oxford, MS
Brown Family Dairy still farms for the joy of it. They show their cows the same love you’d show your momma, which is why their milk and cream becomes the base of most of our gelatos and ice creams.
Pecans • Indianola, MS
Not everyone can call themselves “home of the original praline pecan.” But Indianola Pecan House can, and that’s why they are the nuthouse for us (well, that and their bourbon praline pecans are to die for).
Blueberries • Senatobia, MS
Peggy has been running her farm in Senatobia for a decade, where she grows seven varieties of blueberries so flavorful, we barely have to do a thing to turn them into delicious gelato.
Local Honey • Clarksdale, MS
Powell and Sons has been producing honey for 35 years, extracting and processing the golden goodness in an old school building from the 1940s.
Handmade Caramels • Memphis, TN
With a finely-tuned secret recipe (the experimentation phase featured 12 different butters alone), Shotwell makes the best caramels and Tennessee toffees around—which makes the best ooey-gooey caramel swirls in Sweet Magnolia gelatos.
Pastured Egg • Oxford, MS
The chickens that live at The Peeples Farm get to see some of the most stunning sunsets in the area while roaming their picturesque and holistic farm. We think it makes their eggs taste even better, but you can be your own judge.
Specialty Produce • Oxford, MS
Woodson Ridge Farms provides fresh local vegetables to cooking enthusiasts and James Beard-nominated chefs alike. We are proud to join the ranks of culinarians using their seasonal produce.
Small Craft Brew • Water Valley, MS
From the Mississippi Blues Trail Ale to the One & Done Imperial IPA, Yalobusha Brewing ferments up some of the best beer in the region. We like drinking it as much as putting it in our gelato!
