The good life is family, friends, a community like Murphys, and a place like JoMa’s, where all are welcome to take a moment to relax and enjoy a special time in the day. It is our goal to make our guests feel like family, and to serve them the most uniquely handcrafted and delicious ice cream they have ever tasted.
JoMa is the name that Jo Ann’s grandchildren call her. She comes from Portuguese and Swiss heritage, her grandparents having immigrated to America to start a dairy business. Memories of drawing a sweet strawberry through cream-topped ice cold milk, are still fresh in JoMa’s mind:
“The whole family would take turns cranking the handle of the White Mountain ice cream maker. Even though I was the youngest, I always wanted to be the one that could turn it the longest.”
Don and JoAnn hand craft the ice cream fresh as needed in small batches, with love and care. All ingredients used are as close to natural as possible. Their state certified factory is located nearby in Hathaway Pines.
