RETAIL

Along with selling the products in their store, Mt. Crawford also delivers to 75 other retailers in the Valley, as well as other parts of the state.

The Friendly City Co-op

Located at the corner of Wolf Street and N Mason Street, the Friendly City Co-op provides Harrisonburg residents with organic and locally produced products. The store has an extensive milk selection, ranging from soy to non-homogenized. Mt. Crawford Creamery is one of the three local creameries that sell their milk in the Co-op. The other two are Homestead Creamery from Wirtz, VA, near Roanoke, and Trickling Springs Creamery from Chambersburg, PA. While Homestead is the top-selling of the three, Mt. Crawford is by far the closest of the three, and delivers to Friendly City twice a week. General Manager Steve Cooke thinks that their milk has fresher taste due to the proximity.

Bella Gelato

Wade Luhn opened Bella Gelato, right across the street from his first restaurant, Bella Luna Wood-Fired Pizza in March 2015. Bella Gelato relies on the milk and cream from Mt. Crawford Creamery to produce frozen treats or cups of latte for Harrisonburg residents. Mt. Crawford also produces a special gelato mix just for Bella Gelato to use. Thia Shank, Bella Gelato’s head baker, believes the locally produced mix gives their gelato a distinctive taste that is hard to find elsewhere. With a rotating list of flavors like brown butter cookie dough and green tea lemongrass , the unique taste Mt. Crawford helps provide comes in many different forms.
