Smiley's Ice Cream

Bringing happiness to you one scoop at a time!

Upcoming Flavors


Our 2016 ice cream season has come to a close, but we'll continue to produce ice cream for our wholesale customers and private events.   We're very excited for our 2017 season, as we are in the beginning stages of having a shop built at Mt. Crawford Creamery that's due to open in the spring.  Stay tuned as we share the progress...

What's Happening with Us?

In less than a month, we will be officially entering into our 16th year of business and embarking on a new voyage for Smiley's Ice Cream.  In late spring/early summer Smiley's Ice Cream will be opening our first ice cream shop on the grounds of Mt. Crawford Creamery!  
We're excited about this symbiotic relationship as we'll be making and selling ice cream (which the creamery does not offer) while using the creameries excellent milk and ice cream mix that our customers have come to love.  We will also be offering the creameries products for sale in our shop so customers can buy them during extended hours when the creamery is closed.   
No longer will our dedicated customer base have to question or follow our weekly setup location/times, but will be able to find our quality ice cream flavors at a consistent location, with reliable hours.  
While starting a brick and mortar location is both exciting and scary, as this is very new territory for us, our customer base has been asking us to venture down this path for years now, and it's finally going to happen in 2017.  
In regards to our mobile ice cream trailer it's still going to be an important aspect of our business.  We've already started adding weddings, business, and public events to our 2017 traveling schedule.  Our businesses, venues, and communities up and down the Shenandoah valley that have relied on our ice cream in the past will still be able to have us bring them our quality ice cream.  
Stay tuned as we will do our best to keep you informed of these exciting changes.
Keep checking back for further updates!

                                  Our History

Smiley's Ice Cream began in 2001 to bring the freshest ice cream you can eat, made at your location, to your next event.   We started out at our local Farmer's Market, but due to requests from customers and businesses to bring ice cream to their events, we became too busy to continue the market on a regular basis.  We currently travel throughout Virginia and surrounding areas to bring our freshly made ice cream to weddings, businesses, street festivals, and private events.  In late spring/early summer of 2017 we will be opening our first ice cream shop on the grounds of Mt. Crawford Creamery.  

                       Our Traditional Process

Traditional ice cream, or "porch ice cream" as we like to refer to it, is at the heart of what we do. It's the ice cream many people grew up making on their porches at home with lots of ice and salt and their own homemade recipes.  Ice cream that focuses on quality ingredients and flavor, and is not as concerned with how much overrun (air) is in the ice cream.  After all, air has no flavor the last time I checked.  

We began with the simple idea that we would make our ice cream the same way I grew up making it as a kid on my parent's back porch.  So we did, putting flavor and quality ingredients at the forefront, and it became a popular hit that developed into a mobile business.  We could make the flavors of ice cream that customers wanted, the old fashioned way, with original wooden bucket ice cream freezers and only the freshest ingredients right at their event in a 12' enclosed trailer that's regulated and inspected by the health department.  

In the winter of 2015, we added a new 20' trailer to our business that allows us to make our great recipes in commercial modern batch freezers.  This allows us to use the same great recipes that our customers have come to love, make any quantity of ice cream that our customers want, make bulk quantities of ice cream at an affordable cost, and allows us to operate our business in a more environmentally friendly way as the new batch freezers don't create the salt water waste that is created in making the ice cream the traditional way.

Our newest trailer allows us to bring the services of an ice cream shop right to the customers location.  It was designed with the customer in mind, as we have learned a lot since 2001 about what customers want.  We can serve from the trailer, or lay down the back of the trailer to bring the equipment into the event that we're serving at.  We can serve 800 people down to 50 people from the same trailer.  

The year of 2017 will open the doors to our first ice cream shop.  This shop will provide us with a retail and wholesale store, a stable environment to produce our great ice cream, indoor and outdoor seating for customers, and adequate freezer and refrigerator storage for our products and supplies.  It'll have office space and meeting space for potential clients and allow us to better meet our customers needs.

Our business will now offer both the reliability of a storefront and the services that only a mobile ice cream trailer can offer.  It's this flexibility, and love of making great quality ice cream, that backs our motto of "Bringing happiness to you one scoop at a time!"
