• MIDWEST CRAFTED
    CREAMERY

    FROM THE HEART OF AMERICA

A strong work ethic, a passion for creating the best ice cream, and a humble family-centered culture are the tenets of our Midwest Crafted Creamery. This isn’t a job; it’s how we live. Waking early to greet the milk truck coming in from the farm down the road. Getting the mix just right. Tinkering with flavors. Partnering with other like-minded Midwest artisans. Crafting a variety of unique tastes that can’t be replicated. Our creamery was founded right here in the pasturelands of Western Michigan, and we’ve been perfecting the art of ice cream since 1926.

  • TIME TESTED

    RECIPES

    It’s an ongoing challenge here at Hudsonville: how can we make it better? Many of our ice creams use a base recipe that was created back in 1926, and despite our best efforts, it hasn’t changed for 90 years. We honor this integrity, and will never change a recipe unless it makes our ice cream better. We’ll keep you posted if that day ever comes.

  • OUR NEIGHBORS ARE

At Hudsonville, we are located within an hour’s drive of our farms. Some are a mere 15 minutes away. That’s why when you taste our ice cream, you’ll enjoy the freshness.

  • INGREDIENTS

    FROM THE FINEST PEOPLE

STATE OF THE ART FACILITY

PRECISE COMBINATIONS

  • NEGATIVE PRESSURE

    We like to keep our plant clean, and having negative air pressure in our Mix room keeps any and all bacteria from getting past our pasteurization process.

  • PRECISE COMBINATIONS

    Balancing lactose levels in cream is just one way we ensure consistency in our ice cream. We use the latest technology to get all our mixes just right.

  • 40° BELOW ZERO

    When our ice cream is packaged, it is immediately frozen as it passes through our Spiral Freezer which is set at -40º degrees.
