In January 2001, Maple View Ice Cream opened its doors on New Year’s Day. To this day, those doors remain open! The idea for making delicious homemade ice cream came from Robert Nutter, the founder of Maple View Farm, and his daughter, Muffin Nutter Brosig. With the success of bottling fresh Maple View Farm milk, Muffin and her father decided that the community would appreciate and enjoy fresh local ice cream. After going to ice cream school at Penn State, their dream became a reality. Muffin and her father believed that premium ice cream must be hand-crafted in smaller batches and made with the freshest cream and highest quality ingredients available. They decided to use as many local ingredients as possible, local berries, North Carolina pecans, Orange County honey and cream from the cows grazing in the pastures of Maple View Farm. Their delicious Maple View Ice Cream is true cow to cone. Their love for Maine, where the Nutter’s originated from, also played a role in the development of their custom flavor, by paying homage to the south and north, they created flavors that are appealing to everyone. Muffin used only the best Maple Syrup from her beloved Maine to make the best bases for classic favorites such as Butter Pecan, and her special Maple Walnut recipe.

Maple View Ice Cream not only offers an exceptional award winning product, but a place to relax and take in the breathtaking views overlooking the farm from the front porch! Maple View Ice Cream is inspired by tradition, heritage and a reverend respect for farming. At the Country Store you will find not only quality Maple View Farm ice cream and milk, but local cheeses, eggs, local soap, North Carolina Pecans, local handcrafted crafts, delicious fudge and old fashioned candies.

Today, Robert Nutter, Allison Nichols-Clapper and Ross Poore proudly carry on the tradition of Maple View Ice Cream.
