About SoCo

Founded in 2004 as a scoop shop in downtown Great Barrington, SoCo makes super-premium ice cream and sorbet for you. Treat yourself to the delicious joys of SoCo!  

We source all our dairy from a fourth-generation family farm in Vermont, make our own inclusions (cookie dough, brownies, caramel) from scratch in our own kitchen, and use great ingredients, whether it is local blueberries or real vanilla plucked from orchids halfway around the world.


When you eat SoCo you enjoy an old-fashioned treat made with traditional New England values.


Our store is wildly popular in the summer and consistently wins awards as best ice cream scoop shop in western and central Massachusetts, and is often included in Top Ten lists for the state.


You will find SoCo pints, cups and boxes distributed from Maryland to Maine and in locations such as Whole Foods stores in eastern New England, King’s supermarkets in northern New Jersey, and Morton Williams in New York City.


We are pleased to be a part of the food and cultural traditions of the Berkshires, forging partnerships with local food makers and longstanding, internationally known cultural institutions such as Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company and the Berkshire International Film Festival.
