Gourmet Vegan Ice Cream in the Lakes Region - Edit

As a long-time part-time vegan to Meredith, NH, I have to admit that there are moments when I have wished that the various soft-serve ice cream shoppes or creameries of my childhood were outmatched by vegan counterparts beyond commercial supermarket pints or the one flavor at the Ben & Jerry's in the Mills Falls Marketplace. Looking online this visit, I was surprised to see Rock Salt Creamery doing cashew-based ice cream in style in Sanbornton and took the family for a short country drive to visit. Apparently, the days before we arrived there had just been some significant local TV press and the shop had been cleared out of some flavors and mix-in ingredients--not ideal, but understandable. But three chocolate-dipped bars later, and a mix-in dish of chocolate with walnuts and almonds (pecans were out), the family couldn't have been more pleased. Ingredients are fresh and organic. There are waffle cones. Also, it is not cash only as described. They have a square system for credit cards. A family operation and it lacked some of the tight business practice that you might find in the big city, but a wonderful addition to the lakes region of a family that is trying to walk its talk, live healthy, and teach people in the area about healthy food.

Pros: Many flavors of fresh cashew ice cream, Chocolate Dipping Sauce (Kids will love it), Country farm trip

Cons: Service slightly disorganized, Set your GPS for Heritage Farm, you could pass it

strange experience - Edit

I had a weird experience here. It's on a farm, and it was pretty dead. The place itself is really cute from the outside and has that farm feel. However, when I walked in there was one woman working there and she seemed confused that I was there. I asked if they were open and she said yes. I looked around and it looked like it was just ice cream bars so I asked her if there were other options and she said just bars and cups. So I went over to the freezer to get a cup and I chose peanut butter cup. When I went to pay for it I asked for a spoon and she didn't have one. No spoons?? At an ice cream place?? It was so weird. She called to her colleague asking if he had any spoons and he went in the back room to check and the lady said they usual just use the small wooden spoons and i said that was fine so I took that and left. As I was pulling out of the parking lot the man who went looking for spoons ran out with a handful of plastic spoons and gave me one. The ice cream was delicious, but very expensive for a small amount, and similar to something I could get at the grocery store

Pros: delicious product

Cons: poor service

Great people, great place. - Edit

Really good vegan cashew ice cream located on a farm in Sanbornton NH. You heard that right. People at Hertidge Farm are always incredibly helpful and friendly. Playground on site and farm animals for feeding and petting. Only down side is they mostly have homemade ice cream bars not scoops and cones. The bars come in a variety of different flavors though, usually more then 10! Plus they will dip them in chocolate, if you like! It would be nice if they had sundaes and cones, but I'll take vegan ice cream anyway you want to deliver it.

Pros: Playground, Friendly staff, vegan ice cream

Cons: no cones, or sundaes
