Members club for artisanal ice cream in Manhattan

Food & Drink

Manhattan Milk Company reacquainted downtown New Yorkers with doorstep deliveries of bottled milk. Now, another local startup is hoping to, um, milk the same market. Soon to officially launch, Milk Made is offering New Yorkers the chance to have a pint of freshly-made ice cream delivered to their doorstep every month. The service will be by subscription only, and will give members the chance to submit flavour ideas and see how their ice cream is made, as well as attend Milk Made ice cream parties. Pricing for the service is still being finalised, and Milk Made expects to be able to accommodate about 50 members. So what kind of ice cream are we talking here? You’ve guessed it: local and organic. The ingredients are sourced from local farmers’ markets, so flavours vary with the seasons. There will generally be five to choose from per month, to be detailed on a menu sent to all members. Examples of flavours on offer include Maple Pancake, Berry-Berry Cobbler and Peanut Butter Brown Sugar, all handmade by the company’s founders in their East Village flat. Which is about as (still) made here as it gets. (Related: Used cooking oil for ultra-local candlemaking in TokyoHandmade greeting cards by monthly subscription.) Spotted by: Cecilia Biemann
