Maple View Farm was founded by Bob Nutter and it is a family-owned dairy farm which was established in November 1963 in Orange County. In November 1996 the dairy farm began providing bottled milk. It was the first in a series of steps that led to the production of ice cream. On New Year’s Day in 2001, the Maple View Farm country store opened. Bob Nutter and his daughter Muffin Nutter Brosig came up with the idea to make homemade ice cream using their farm fresh milk. The community was thrilled at their ice cream endeavor.
