Westby, WI 54667
Suzanne (Sibby) Sebion-Huber was raised on a western Wisconsin homestead purchased by her grandfather in 1856. Today, she and her husband, Tom, raise their own sons Ross (11) and Joe (9) on the same 100-acres where they play in the same organic pastures and still name every cow!
Sue Huber spent some years at other ventures before undertaking entrepreneurial training at the Small Business Development Center at UW-La Crosse with an eye toward making her own old world ice cream. However, having little experience with the product, Sue collaborated with Professor Emeritus Robert Bradley in food science at UW-Madison, who imparted a recipe for the highest quality ice cream. He encouraged her to never cut corners with ingredients, advice she took to heart. Sibbys Premium Organic Ice Cream contains only five ingredients (the chocolate has six), all certified organic and three produced locally. Even better, Sibbys is also healthier because of its low butterfat content, but that doesnt mean its any less delicious.
Sue, of course, is the head ice cream maker and also works on marketing her product. Ross and Joe help out with the ice cream making as well as making hay, hauling hay bales, picking berries, and other farm work. Sibbys Premium Organic Ice Cream is certified organic by Midwest Organic Services Association (MOSA) and to date is the only organic ice cream in Wisconsin.
