Taharka Brothers makes handmade ice cream with a mission. Creating change and connecting with the community is at the heart of the company’s soul as Taharka Brothers was one of the companies to file for Benefit Corporation status in Maryland.
Switching to wind power was a natural choice. As Darius Wilmore with Taharka Bros. explained to us, “Sustainability is important to our business because it’s important to the overall health of our economy, society and planet – it’s the responsible thing to do.” The company uses their purchasing power to create change. Taharka Brothers has built personal relationships with the farmers in Haiti where they source ingredients and uses Facebook to educate consumers about the lives of those behind the ingredients. You will also find local ingredients in their ice cream as they are strong believers in supporting the local economy. On a recent visit, we discovered a large bag of Michele’s Granola waiting to be combined into the next magical creation.
Nothing that Taharka Brothers does is by chance or without a desire to impact the community in a positive way. The company actively supports the Baltimore Urban Debate League and other youth organizations.
You can get your Taharka Bros. fix at wind powered Golden West Café in Baltimore and Busboys and Poets in DC. And, join us for Not Your Mom’s Ice Cream Social October 20. The Grand Finale to Wind Powered Baltimore Week, this party and freestyle jam features MC Fan-C and the Baltimore Mixtape Project All-Stars, free ice cream, and a raffle to support the Baltimore Urban Debate League.
