Bi-Rite Creamery (San Francisco)

A family-owned organic creamery in Marin County just north of San Francisco has supplied Bi-Rite Creamery since it opened in 2006 with organic dairy and eggs. Five yolks go into the rich Bi-Rite base and then other local, handmade, and organic ingredients are used to make luscious flavors like Honey Lavender with Sonoma Honey, Malted Vanilla with Peanut Brittle and Milk Chocolate Pieces, and Balsamic Strawberry. In the adjacent Bi-Rite Bakeshop, the two owners, who started as bakers, make whatever tidbits goes into their ice cream, whether it's brownies, marshmallows, or snickerdoodles for cinnamon-flavored Ricanelas ice cream.
