Our Story

Third Bowl Homemade Ice Cream is the creation of ice cream lovers Kendall and Matt, who wanted to bring fresh, natural, superb homemade ice cream to the Gunnison Valley, where we live.  We started making ice cream at home, started sharing our creations with friends and family, and were overwhelmed with the response we got.  With the tremendous support of our top notch product development team Dayla and Harper (Matt's children) we were able to open our shop on June 26th of 2012.

Third Bowl's vision is to create the best ice cream we can, using wholesome ingredients, from local farms and businesses whenever we can.  We have been through some huge changes since May of 2020 - We have moved our production to Hotchkiss, Colorado, in the the North Fork Valley, where we have long sourced dairy, eggs, honey and a lot of the fruit that we use in our ice cream.  We are also now just a producer and wholesaler of ice cream - selling to retail partners around Western Colorado.  We realized, through a very crazy time for everyone, that the best way to grow our business and support our family was to make this move, and get our product into more stores and shops around the state.  We will forever be grateful to the Crested Butte Community for giving us so much support and the belief in our product to make this big change!  If you'd like to carry Third Bowl in your shop or grocery store, please contact us at info@thirdbowl.com!
