Maple View Ice Cream Continues Farm Fresh Tradition
Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Just wanted to keep you in the loop on the progress at Maple View Ice Cream as Maple View Milk Company & Farm prepare to close their doors.

First a recap: Maple View Ice Cream is here to stay. Twenty years and counting. We’re keeping our name and the proprietary ice cream formulations that you all love. Most of all, the view from our country store porch will remain in agriculture.

We have finalized arrangements with Simply Natural Creamery, a family farm from Ayden NC. Simply Natural will begin supplying milk and other dairy products to our country store beginning on September 16th. That includes farm fresh milk (skim, low-fat and whole), buttermilk, chocolate milk, heavy cream, and butter. Simply Natural will provide eggnog during the holidays and add half and half year-round.

The milk packaging will change. We will shift from deposit glass bottles to recyclable containers. Sizes range from pints to half gallons. Simply Natural’s very creative labels include QR codes so you can link directly to their farm to learn about their values and products.

Our ice cream will begin to transition to Simply Natural bases later in the year. Their bases are like Maple View’s (we have worked with them in the past) so our recipes and ice cream production aren’t changing a bit. Simply Natural ice cream base has the same butterfat content as Maple View’s base. We are looking for new flavor ideas and welcome your suggestions.

Our country store will continue to offer your favorite local farm products such as Chapel Hill Creamery cheeses, Latta Farm Eggs, local honey, Carolina Nut Cracker Pecans and more. If there are additional local farm items, you’d like us to carry, please let us know. We love showcasing delights from our local community

We will be getting our last shipments from Maple View Milk Company during the week of September 6th. Maple View Milk company has asked that all bottles be returned for deposit to the store by September 20th

This is a bittersweet moment for us, as we say goodbye to long-time friends and colleagues. At the same time, we are thrilled to expand our partnership with Simply Natural.

As promised. Maple View Ice Cream is here to stay. We are proud to be part of this amazing community and committed to continue our tradition of providing farm fresh ice cream, dairy products and a view to you and your family.

Thank you for your support. We are appreciative and grateful for you!

With Gratitude,
Maple View Ice Cream
