Our story starts with a pursuit of fun and a love for our city. Golden Cow Creamery was founded by North Carolina natives Alex and Liz Hannah as a way to share their love of real homemade ice cream with friends and help the community at the same time.
After growing up outside Raleigh and attending college at Appalachian State University, Alex and Liz moved to Colorado and traveled the country for both fun and work, sampling delicious homemade ice cream along the way. After moving back to Charlotte it was immediately apparent what was missing; delicious, homemade ice cream. So after a lot of learning and help from friends, family, and the community we are proud to bring our passion for ice cream to you.
Our flavors are inspired by North Carolina's diverse food culture as well as other fun and unique flavor’s sourced from around the country and the world. We make all our ice cream by hand in small batches from scratch with real milk, cream, and sugar or coconut for our monthly rotating vegan option. You will not find any artificial syrups, bagged ice cream mix, stabilizers, filler, or food coloring here. We strive to use local ingredients wherever possible and support our local farmers when choosing flavors for our seasonal selections.
For us it’s not just about making delicious ice cream. Golden Cow Creamery is a socially conscious organization with a mission to support the growth and prosperity of our community. We are committed to supporting our community and to do so we created a charitable giving program we call The Queens Share. Through this program we give a portion of our monthly profits to various local charities monthly. Further, we are dedicated to building strength in our community by providing a positive and inclusive location for community members to gather while give back to those less fortunate.
Our ultimate goal is to create a business the community loves to support that in turn supports the community. We hope you really love our ice cream too.
