Dedicated employees and community friends gathered on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day at Maple View Farm Ice Cream to celebrate the sweet shop’s 15 years in operation. To commemorate the occasion, pints of milk, ice cream scoops and banana splits were offered at special low prices as a throwback to what customers paid in 2001. In spite of the afternoon’s dreary weather, a steady stream of attendees stopped by for chilly treats, some taking their scoops to go while others relaxed in rocking chairs on the big front porch overlooking the farm.
