Graeter’s Ice Cream

In the mid 1800s, the Graeter family emigrated from Bavaria eventually settling in Cincinnati, Ohio. While just a teenager, Louis Charles Graeter began making ice cream in a market at the base of Sycamore Hill. In the age before mechanized freezers, ice cream was a rare treat and had to be made in very small batches using rock salt and ice to freeze the cream.

Today, the fourth generation of the Graeter family runs the company and they still make French Pot ice cream just the way the founder did in 1870, two gallons at a time. With retail stores in Ohio and Kentucky and grocery store distribution around the country, Graeter’s fans can find lots of ways to enjoy the world’s best ice cream!
