"My wife is making scones for my son and she needs cream. She's going to make butter and as a consequence of making butter she makes buttermilk. And the scones require buttermilk...[I come here] really because it's local and you cannot get much more local than this. That's the main draw. There are a number of exemplary farms out here. I am just really proud of Maple View for being such a staple in the area. You can buy Maple View in Mebane and in Pittsboro. That's a pretty nice range for a local concern." - Tim lives in Saxapahaw. He stopped by Maple View Farm Country Store on the way home from a business trip in Raleigh. When I ask what kind of scones his wife plans on baking he replies in jest: "The kind that takes buttermilk. There are two cooks in my house. One is my son, one is my wife. I'm primitive. I grill some."
Maple View Farm Country Store is located in Hillsborough, about 15 minutes from downtown Carrboro. Lollygag on a rocking chair and enjoy the countryside view while savoring the velvety ice cream. Open noon-9 p.m.
