Twenty minutes outside the city of Indianapolis is a family-owned dairy farm by the name of Traders Point Creamery.
In 2003, owners Fritz Kunz and Jane Elder Kunz began a dairy farm on their family’s land in Zionsville, Indiana, with the intent of producing 100 percent organic, grass-fed dairy products.
Today, the farm includes an organic restaurant and a homemade ice cream shop.
Along with the usual favorites like Dutch Chocolate and Vanilla, seasonal flavors include Blackberry, Caramel, and Mango.
Keeping in the vein of sustainability, the ice cream is both sold and served in recyclable glass jars.
Quality isn’t the only draw for locals and visitors; the farm also has a great atmosphere.
Weddings and events are often held on the picturesque property—often in one of the historic barns that has been salvaged and converted into venues—and the farm’s owners also host a year-round farmer’s market, summer camps, and farm tours.
Clearly, the family has remained dedicated to their mission to “nourish the land that nourishes us all,” and patrons have remained dedicated to Traders Point.
