With cornflake maple and black sesame coconut ice cream or blood orange raspberry baked custard and strawberry Mississippi mud pie, they are plenty of memorable flavors to try.
"The flavors are amazing," Adriana states.
According to Sullberg, part of Noble Folks recipe for success is quite simple.
"We focus on seasonality, local produce, on high quality ingredients. We don't chock our products full of preservatives," Sullberg explains.
"I'm a mom of two little ones and for me, it's important for me to know that I giving them something that doesn't have preservatives," Adriana shares, "You can tell, it's like grandma made it."
"My favorite part about Noble Folk is the people, Ozzy and Christian, that have created a culture of humbleness, community involvement," customer Carol Beattie adds.

But with their ice cream and pie, Sullberg and Jimenez just enjoy making everyones day a little sweeter.
"The fun thing about having a dessert and ice cream business is that you are able to see the instant gratification from customers," Sullberg says, "they'll come in and, they'll, you know, get a scoop of Dutch cookie ice cream and you immediately see a big grin on their face."
"You need to come to Noble Folk. The ice cream is so good," customer Sophia announces.
"And I always have to get more than one scoop," Marta adds with a smile.
