We make all of our ice creams and soft serve from fresh goat milk and yogurt that we source directly from local farms. These farms use sustainable farming practices and do not use prophylactic antibiotics or hormones. Goat milk has a delicious slightly sweet flavor, as well as a lot of nutritional benefits…
• Goat milk is lower in fat than cow's milk, but with all the nutrition!
• Goat milk is rich in healthy antimicrobial fatty acids, which are burned by the body, rather than stored as is cow's milk.
• Goat milk is a great source of iron, calcium, protein and potassium.
• Goat milk is lactose friendly, making it easy for people with lactose-intolerance to digest.
• Goat milk is the most similar animal milk to that of humans and is more readily processed than cow's milk.
The fresh goat milk used in Victory Garden NYC's products is locally sourced from Side Hill Acres in Candor, New York. Their goats are raised on fresh hay and grass, without any prophylactic antibiotics or hormones. The end result is a frozen treat that reflects the taste of our beautiful landscape. Sophia Brittan is the founder and chef of Victory Garden NYC.

|Sophia Brittan is the founder and owner of Victory Garden NYC. The idea was conceived one night, long ago, while she was eating a bowl of goat milk yogurt from Beltane Farm. As she adorned the yogurt with pomegranate seeds, black walnuts, and local honey, she couldn't help but think why a healthy goat milk dessert could not exist for local food lovers like herself. Frozen yogurt seemed to be all the rage, yet there was not a local, wholesome alternative. She entertained the idea a bit, but tried to lay it to rest in the back of her mind. However, Victory Garden wanted to be born, and sooner rather than later, she found herself testing recipes and finding a home for her goat milk soft serve.|
After having graduated from Georgetown University in 2005, Sophia pursued a culinary education from both the French Culinary Institute, as well as the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Her love of cooking, passion for healthy eating, and desire to travel have all shaped Victory Garden into a place where you will always find a blend of of local and foreign culture.
