There’s An Ice Cream Shop On This Beautiful Farm In North Carolina And You Have To Visit
When I discovered Maple View Farms in Hillsborough my first thought was, “How did I not know about this place?” A quaint ice cream shop on a beautiful farm? Yes, that exists in North Carolina and this summer you’ll want to visit as soon as possible.
Father/daughter duo Robert Nutter and Muffin Nutter Brosig wanted to bring fresh, local ice cream to the Hillsborough community while also putting the skills they learned at Penn State ice cream school to good use. They opened on New Year's Day in 2011.
From the start, Maple View was founded on the fact that small batches produce the highest quality ice cream while using local ingredients forges ties in the community and improves flavor. Summer sees the delicious butter pecan made with locally-sourced North Carolina pecans. There's also a wide assortment of fresh berry flavors come spring and summer as well as cream from cows grazing the pasture on the farm.
Referred to as 'cow to cone,' you get the freshest, highest quality, and may we say creamiest ice cream here. This award-winning ice cream is crafted not just in quality but also in the inventiveness of flavors offered.
Classics and new favorites include southern butter pecan, honey toasted almond, double chocolate, coffee, cookies & cream, cookie dough, banana, mint chocolate chip and Tobacco Road Ice Cream Rival with Carolina Crunch and Devil’s Delight.
Seasonal flavors also get inventive like sweet tea in summer, fruit cake and eggnog in winter, and spring brings the famous banana puddin' flavor.
Maple View also offers hand-dipped frozen yogurt, homemade waffle cones, sorbet, banana splits, and a country store with fresh eggs, milk, and local cheeses.
Located in the rolling hillsides of southern Hillsborough, it's more than just a place for award-winning ice cream or a great place to catch spectacular views and relax on the front porch. Mixing southern charm with their northern roots (the Nutters hail from Maine) Maple View is a perfect mix of the two.
More than an ice cream shop but a unique, one-of-a-kind experience, you'll want to check out Maple View Ice Cream ASAP this summer.
