    Maple View Farms

    Join us on a trip to Hillsborough, where we will learn about the history and operation of this wonderful dairy farm. We will take a tour, go on a hayride and, of course, eat some delicious ice cream!

    Originating in Corinna, Maine, the farm existed at the same location from the time the first settlers homesteaded central Maine in the early 1800s. Bob Nutter is the fifth generation of his family to farm land, first in Maine and now in North Carolina. At the turn of the century, Bob’s grandfather purchased his first registered Holstein dairy cow. Holsteins are black and white, and produce vast quantities of milk with a moderate fat content.

    In July 1963, the Maview milking herd and bred heifers were sold. A better milk market and climate for double cropping was found in North Carolina. Within two months the calves, farm families and equipment moved 1,000 miles to the present location. Maple View Farm was back in business milking cows in Orange County, NC.
