Family-owned and operated, Oak Barrel was founded in 2015 by artisan ice cream maker Greg Raynes. His vision is for his ice cream parlor is to create a welcoming place serving gourmet small batch ice cream. We invite our guests to sample our Specialty Flavors – and discover our unique Limited Edition monthly flavors.
Greg has been making ice cream as a hobby since childhood, and has fond memories of churning fresh cream, fruit and ice to create yummy confections that all his family clamored for. In 2015, he decided to retire from teaching and pursue his passion of making gourmet ice cream to share with people who love old-fashioned taste made with superior ingredients. Oak Barrel opened April 11, 2015 in the Scandia Village in Turlock.
You can see Greg behind the counter inviting guests to taste his newest creation, or talking about new ice cream ideas. Greg’s philosophy is simple – he’s committed to creating fresh delicious flavors that people will love to eat and share with friends and family.
