One of the things that makes Sweet Bumpas Seattle Ice Cream so unique is our dedication to utilizing the freshest local ingredients. Have a lick of one of our farm fresh summer flavors, and you’ll taste the difference that using berries from Hayton Farms or peaches from Collins Family Orchards makes in your overall enjoyment.
Given our passion for working with local farms, we’re thrilled to be invited to participate in this year’s Taste Washington on the Farm event at Oxbow Farm on Friday March 24th. After guests enjoy a meal by chef Josh Henderson, they’ll be treated to two of our most popular summer flavors…Peach Dreamsicle featuring Collins Family Orchards peaches and Blackberry Vanilla featuring berries from Hayton Farms.
