Naturally New England Ice Cream Sandwiches from The Farmer's Cow and Sweet & Simple

The hottest thing in frozen treats this summer is ice cream cookie sandwiches. One bite into the newest product from The Farmer’s Cow and you’ll understand why.

Just in time for summer, The Farmer’s Cow is excited to announce a delicious new addition to its growing line of local “Made in Connecticut” dairy treats. Introducing, Naturally New England™ Ice Cream Sandwiches from The Farmer’s Cow in collaboration with Sweet & Simple® bake shop in Fairfield.

Naturally New England Ice Cream Sandwiches are locally made with fresh all natural ingredients and come in five unique flavor combinations. And, they are now available to customers at independent grocers throughout Connecticut as well as at The Farmer’s Cow Calfé & Creamery in Mansfield and Sweet & Simple in Fairfield. Each cookie sandwich is individually wrapped with The Farmer’s Cow colorful signature brand.

The inspired flavor combinations were carefully chosen by pairing the perfect cookie with one of four different flavors of The Farmer’s Cow ice cream.

The five sandwich flavors offered are:

  •     Chocolate chip cookies & Hay! Hay! Hay! Vanilla™
  •     Chocolate sugar cookies & Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Moo™
  •     Oatmeal raisin cookies & Hay! Hay! Hay! Vanilla™
  •     Chocolate sugar cookies & Fields of Mint Chocolate Chip™
  •     Chocolate chip cookies & Up Early Coffee™

Every flavor of The Farmer’s Cow Ice Cream is locally made with all-natural ingredients including our own fresh Connecticut milk and rich cream. Sweet & Simple cookies are made from scratch with original recipes created by Sweet & Simple founder Michelle Jaffee using the best quality ingredients available including The Farmer’s Cow fresh Connecticut eggs. Together, they are a delicious portable way to enjoy The Farmer’s Cow ice cream on the go. Even frozen, Sweet & Simple cookies are flavorful and chewy.

“We sampled our ice cream cookie sandwiches this past summer at the Connecticut Farmland Trust Celebration of Farms event and they were a big hit. We’re excited that we are now able to offer them to all of our customers,” said Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmer’s Cow. “In seeking out the right cookie partner, we were looking for great cookies – and we found them! Sweet & Simple’s cookies are delicious, made with The Farmer’s Cow fresh Connecticut eggs and all-natural ingredients. They are the perfect complement to our creamy ice cream. Together, it’s just a handful of happiness!”

Michelle Jaffee, owner of Sweet & Simple, says “I am thrilled to partner with The Farmer’s Cow. It’s a perfect fit. They have such a deep commitment to supporting local businesses and producing the highest quality products. It has been a lot of fun working with the farmers to develop the cookie flavors and get each one just right.”

For the two flavors featuring chocolate sugar cookies, Sweet & Simple developed a new cookie recipe specifically for The Farmer’s Cow. “There was a lot of taste testing and I’m really proud of the final result,” says Jaffee. “I love that in a small way through this product I am able to support Connecticut farmers and that The Farmer’s Cow is supporting small businesses.”

The collaboration with Sweet & Simple is the latest partnership by The Farmer’s Cow to join with a small, family-owned business in Connecticut. The Farmer’s Cow has partnered with select growers and producers to sell Connecticut-sourced products including all natural eggs, apple cider, seasonal beverages, coffee, and now, ice cream cookie sandwiches in addition to its line of fresh Connecticut milk and dairy products.
