Fernie’s Happy Cow Ice Cream Inc. has opened a second shop in Cranbrook. Co-owner Wendy Lyn said the ice cream is handcrafted by her husband and co-owner Dan Worth. “We make all the mix-ins,” she said, and ingredients are locally sourced and organic whenever possible.

This premium ice cream is a French custard recipe with no artificial colours or flavours. Mints and raspberries are from their garden, for example. Cowboy Coffee is made with coffee from Kootenay Roasting Company. “I love it when companies come together,” Lyn said. The best seller is Honeycomb made with local honey and homemade sponge toffee. Vegans can enjoy the sorbets.
