Ice cream in Beaverton, Ontario
Cool Cow was established in 2015 as a crazy idea to create youth employment, develop employability skills and teach youth about entrepreneurship through the sales of ice cream products. What came to be is a social enterprise that serves the renowned and incredibly tasty Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream. If ice cream didn’t make you feel good enough, supporting a worthy cause in the community should, since every dollar made supports our charitable youth programs.
Cool Cow Ice Cream Shop is a social enterprise that provides youth with the opportunity to grow their understanding of entrepreneurship and build the business skills needed to run their own enterprise without the financial risk. Brock Youth Centre Staff and Board Members oversee the operations and mentor staff as they learn. Youth will see the impact of their business initiatives and decisions on sales targets and the store’s bottom line.

Proudly Serving Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream
“2012 marked the proud 75th anniversary of the Kawartha Dairy Company, a 100% Canadian, 100% family owned company.
For over 75 years, Kawartha Dairy has been proud to be a 100% Canadian-owned company, still operated by the same family that started it back in the beginning. Although it has grown tremendously from its early days, it remains headquartered in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, where it was founded. In 1937 Jack and Ila Crowe took a leap of faith and bought a small dairy in Bobcaygeon. Jack had learned the trade while working for Oshawa Dairy but the newly renamed Kawartha Dairy didn’t bear much resemblance to that larger big city firm. At that time it consisted of a small, simple three room building, where the cold storage area was cooled with ice cut from the lake.
Situated in a bountiful farming region, the dairy receives deliveries of fresh milk daily, most of which is from the local area and all of which is from Ontario farms. The members of the Crowe family would like to take the opportunity to thank both their loyal customers and the farmers who supply them. Without their support over the years, the company simply could not have grown and prospered the way it has.”
