Olympia, Washington – At Humble Cow Ice Cream, just ordering a cone can add some bounce to someone’s day.

“I feel like if you’re going to give yourself a treat, it has to be good, and the ice cream definitely spreads joy,” said Megan Kronk, the owner. It came in the name of a humble cow.

“I think that’s the opposite of recklessness,” she laughed.

A former high school counselor, she dreamed of her own small batch made of the artisanal ice cream business at the start of the pandemic.

“This wasn’t a great time to start a business, but it was a great time to plan a project,” she said.

The plan included a place for the community to gather where each family member could get an ice cream treat. From vegetarian daughter to family dog.

“We have puppy cups which are a frozen treat for dogs and they are made from something that is harmless to dogs,” Kronk said. “For example, it doesn’t have dairy, it doesn’t have chocolate, so it’s made with peanut butter and apple juice and bananas and things that are healthy for dogs but also give them a fun treat.”

Handing someone an ice cream cone is like spreading a little joy.

“The type of ice cream runs on both ends of the spectrum,” Kronk said. “If you’re celebrating with ice cream it’s okay. If you need some comfort ice cream it’s okay too.”

Every day Humble Cow makes new batches of waffle cones and they will always serve up some type of coffee ice cream.

“We’re in the Northwest and people want their coffee, whether it’s a drink or an ice cream,” she said.

So how good is ice cream? We met two lifelong friends and ice cream lovers who ordered a tasting ride of six scoops.

“I’d give it a 10 out of 10,” said Carolyn Shipley-Peters. “Good flavour, it’s really creamy, and the salted caramel is very good.”

Her friend Anna Krause agreed that “salted caramel definitely wins in our book.” “But I think I could have any of these any day and I’d be totally happy.”

“It’s really cool to see people here love ice cream,” Kronk said. “That’s exactly why this business was created and delivers great ice cream.”

Humble Cow is located in southern Olympia on the corner of Henderson Street and the Yelm Highway. They are open from 2 to 9 pm daily.
