The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

Self-guided fac­tory tours are now be­ing of­fered free of charge at the Cows Cream­ery.

Cows Cream­ery, which is lo­cated on the North River Cause­way, of­fers Is­lan­ders and visi­tors alike the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the pro­duc­tion process be­hind this Is­land-owned com­pany.

“We hand mix all of our ice cream here at the cream­ery, us­ing top-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents,” said Al­lis­ter Mac­Don­ald, Cows ice cream pro­duc­tion, in a news re­lease. “It’s great be­cause visi­tors can see us mix­ing the in­gre­di­ents here, ei­ther in per­son or on videos when we’re not pro­duc­ing, and then head out to the store to try some.”

In ad­di­tion to Cows ice cream, visi­tors can also ob­serve the ag­ing process for the Avon­lea Cloth­bound Ched­dar, re­cent cham­pion at the Cana­dian Cheese Grand Prix. All Cows cloth­ing is printed at the fac­tory as well.

“Most peo­ple are sur­prised to see that we print all of our Tshirts right here in Char­lot­te­town,” said pro­duc­tion man­ager Dave Arse­nault. “All of the in­ven­tory for our stores across the coun­try is printed here and then shipped out ac­cord­ingly.”

The free, self-guided tour is avail­able daily from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. at the Cows Cream­ery. Visit www.cowscream­ery.ca for more de­tails.
