At Farmhouse Chocolates & Ice Cream, we are a soy-free, corn syrup-free, and GMO-free facility.
We do process ingredients containing the following food allergens:
A bit about our process: We stringently adhere to best practices that limit cross contamination. For example, when making products, we do so in a particular order, tempering, dipping, and molding any ingredients recognized by the FDA to be common allergens (any nuts, dairy, or soy, for example.
We do not currently process any ingredients containing gluten, soy, or peanuts. This said, we are not a certified gluten-free, soy-free, or peanut-free facility. We may bring personal food containing gluten and/or peanuts into the facility and, though it is not consumed in the same areas as our products are crafted, utensils, plates, etc. touched by these allergens may be washed in the same sinks used to wash utensils and equipment used to create our chocolates, ice creams, and sorbets (although we wait to wash them after all utensils and equipment have been washed).
Moreover, we are chocolatiers, rather than chocolate makers. This means that we source exceptional chocolate and work with it, rather than processing from the bean. At this time, the 85% chocolate we use to make 3 different types of chocolate bars is processed in a facility that also processes gluten, peanuts, and tree nuts.
The 70% chocolate (which we use in most of our products: in the other 3 types of chocolate bars we make, in all of our truffles and caramels, however, is manufactured in a facility that handles tree nuts, but comes rated with a fantastically low gluten content of 5 parts per million or less. We consider all of our 70% chocolate products safe for the gluten intolerant. But for those diagnosed with Celiac Disease, we urge caution and due diligence. Moreover, while we have had many customers with tree nut allergies successfully enjoy our 70% chocolate products, we recognize this is a delicate issue and we do not purport to be nut-free.
If you have any other questions for us, we are very happy to answer them.
