In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Old Iron Creamery

It's a 1937 Model E John Deere engine like you've never seen it!

The concept for Old Iron Creamery started as a hobby over a decade ago. Owner Daylen Borders, along with his brother and father started restoring old antique tractors and taking them to nearby shows. When Daylen came across an antique 1937 Model E John Deere engine, he knew he had to do something different to really show it off. What came next? Homemade Old-Fashion Ice Cream.

Daylen, along with his wife, decided Old Iron Creamery. Old Iron Creamery’s mission is simple, to produce the best tasting homemade ice cream around using their old-time, 5-gallon ice cream freezer and a 1930s John Deere Hit-n-Miss engine. The engine is inside a trailer, appropriately colored to match the trademark John Deere Green, which is set up to a variety of pulleys that make the ice cream buckets churn away.

Old Iron Creamery attends as many festivals, fairs and special events as possible. And they’re also available for parties, weddings, family reunions, picnics or just about any type of event you need some ice cream for. To find an event near you check out their Facebook page.

You can get your hands on some delicious Old Iron Creamery ice cream on September 28th at the Kilgore High School football game (all proceeds benefit the Kilgore High School Band Boosters), or on October 20th at Kerens Cotton Harvest Festival in Kerens, TX just east of Corsicana on Hwy 31, or the Henderson Syrup Festival on November 10th.
