Our Story

Locally Sourced, Crafted with care

We use much more cream and we never add air to our ice cream, so you get thick and rich ice cream with a taffy-like texture. We use only fresh, local, hormone-free milk. We scratch-bake the brownies for our Fudge Brownie, melt and swirl the dark chocolate for our chocolate chip and freshly roast the nuts for our Butter Pecan. We partner with local berry farmers and coffee roasters for the tastiest, freshest ingredients around.

Who We Are

When it comes to ingredients, we believe the label should be short and sweet. At ACME Ice Cream, that’s an easy ask. We source our cream locally from happy neighborhood cows and juicy berries grown within arm’s reach of our verdant hometown in Whatcom County. Exotic ingredients like our coffee, chocolate, and vanilla come from fair trade, single-origin, and premium growing locations around the world. Sweetened naturally with cane sugar and never pumped up with air, ACME Ice Cream is pure, unadulterated goodness. It all adds up to the thickest, richest experience possible proving once again that less really is more – in life and ice cream!



Born and raised in Seattle along the shores of Lake Washington, Erin Fray splashed, rowed, sailed and hiked her way through childhood developing a sharp appreciation for all things Pacific Northwest. In her formative years, Fray began to explore the world by studying abroad in Paris and London earning degrees in art history, a post-graduate diploma in appraisal of fine and decorative art, and an MBA in marketing from UC Berkeley. After one trip to Europe experiencing food grown with best practices - it was all over for Fray on the food front. She had found her true love in what she calls the “temple of daily life.”

During her professional career, Erin has worked in multiple business sectors finding the greatest satisfaction in helping small food companies reach the pinnacle of their potential. A self-proclaimed “West Coast outdoor animal” – she has returned to her PNW roots to nourish the green shoots of ACME Ice Cream. As the quality of ingredients grown in the terroir of Bellingham and Whatcom County connect deeply with her inner-outdoor girl - Fray wakes up every morning excited to have a hand in cultivating the food culture of her native Wild Northwest.
