Each week, Oat & Mill Ltd produces up to 300 litres of tasty frozen oat-based ice cream alternative in a variety of flavours like Peanut Butter Jelly Chocolate Chunk, Butter Pecan Cheesecake and Creamy Pumpkin Spice. Not surprisingly, they sell out every batch at farmers' markets, local events and online. While many other alternatives to dairy-based ice cream rely on tropical ingredients like coconut, Oat & Mill uses Canadian-milled oats. In doing so, they're creating a market for local growers and a healthier alternative for lactose-intolerant consumers.
