We set the bar for Craft Ice Cream by using natural ingredients to churn unique ice cream flavours.

Meet The Owner

Since childhood, Adam Brackbill has had an entrepreneurial spirit. On the road to find a calling, from web development to landscaping, he eventually landed on churning ice cream. Reminiscing on the Summer days his family would churn ice cream, he wanted to bring that tradition to Harrisburg.  Inspired by his family's recipes, recipes from other cultures and the importance of real/local ingredients, Adam now churns unique ice cream flavours that one may not find elsewhere.

We use quality, natural, simple and flavourful ingredients, always. 

Do you know what's in your ice cream? We do.  We set the bar of churning premium ice cream by using natural ingredients with NO artificial food colouring or flavours.  That means no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavours and no artificial colouring like Yellow No 6. or Red 40.  We start with our local Pennsylvania 16% butterfat grass-fed dairy and blend in real fruit or other natural flavours that we prepare ourselves.   This is what homemade ice cream was all about and we're excited to continue that tradition and share it with you.

Sundaes and Desserts Inspired By Cultures From Around The World.

Urban Churn is not your typical ice cream shop.  We pride ourselves in offering unique, craft desserts inspired by cultures from around the world.   Instead of your typical hot fudge sundae or banana split, we offer desserts such as Lemon Bar Sundaes, Bourbon Banana Split, Baklava Ice Cream Sandwiches,  Tiramisu Sundaes and more.  Our menu will changed depending on the season to keep things fresh and delicious.

From concept to creation, Urban Churn carries family tradition & shares it with others.

During my childhood, family members would gather at my Great Grandmother's cottage to celebrate special events. My Great Uncle would bring his old wood churn, ice, salt and a dairy mix from his farm to make homemade ice cream. This was a staple dessert after cooking pit BBQ Chicken. With this fond memory in mind, I decided to carry my family's tradition of making ice cream, bring it to Central PA and open an ice cream shop.
