Maple View Farm is located in Hillsborough, North Carolina and is owned by Mike Strowd and Bob Nutter. Originally, the farm originated in Corinna, Maine, by the Nutter family of which Bob is the fifth generation. Their decision to relocate was due to the better climate that North Carolina offered for a successful milk market and the ease of double cropping. With 400 acres of land that make up their location, Maple View Farm has reworked their purpose in innovative ways that have kept their business thriving, which include its dairy and ice cream.
The dairy was put into full swing when Nutter and Strowd established Maple View Farm Milk Company, LLC. This facility allowed the Maple View to process and bottle their own milk. Maple View breeds Maview cows that produce approximately 2 million pounds of milk per year. Maple View has made sure to ensure that their milk company is eco-friendly. All of their milk are available in glass returnable bottles, as well as plastic recyclable pints. Maple View's milk products include:
- Whole Milk
- Low-Fat Milk
- Skim Milk
- Chocolate Milk
