Pearl Brand Artisanal Ice Cream

SEASONAL FLAVORS: Tipsy Eggnog, Molasses Walnut-Praline, Bittersweet Chocolate Peppermint, & Sweet Potato Marshmallow

Pearl Brand ice cream is handmade by Penelope Ryholt.  In all her ice cream, Penelope uses local, organic, non-homogenized, low-pasteurized Texas Daily Harvest milk.  The ice cream is made in small batches with fresh ingredients and never uses artificial colors, flavors or fillers.

Locally-Roasted Coffee

For the coffee connoisseur your life, we have a few great options…

Oak Cliff Coffee began by delivering their coffee “milkman style” to their neighbors in Oak Cliff, TX.  Every other week, their customers would wake up to fresh-roasted coffee in a burlap sack hanging on their doorknob.  Since then, their story has been about relationships and steady growth.  They now supply their coffee to some of the best coffeehouses, restaurants, and retailers in Dallas.  We at Urban Acres are glad to be one of them!

Dallas-based Cultivar Coffee & Tea was pioneered by Jonathan Meadows and Nathan Shelton who appreciate every coffee for what it truly is and are committed to taking whatever steps necessary to highlight the amazing, unique character in every coffee. They are committed to both quality and sustainability, bringing both ideals hand-in-hand; bringing a new level of care, attention to detail and socio-economic responsibility to the world of coffee.  Cultivar roasts and cups every coffee in celebration of the the hard work that coffee producers have put into their crop year round, respecting the processes that have gone before them and the preparation and consumption of the coffee that will take place once it is in your hands.
