During the summer, a cool scoop of ice cream becomes a declaration of independence from the heat. And, PJ Madison's Organic Ice Cream extends that sense of empowerment, by providing a gelato-style ice cream, completely free of bovine growth hormone and pesticide residues. Inspired and named after the founders' children, the line is completely organic and sweetened with organic unrefined cane sugar.

With signature flavors like Julep Mint Chip and Bourbon Vanilla, this all-natural treat employs both American and European processing techniques to make one sophisticated scoop with a lot of heart. Each product is stamped to promote Donate Life America.
