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.
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.
Hudsonville is proud to be the official ice cream of the Detroit Tigers. Our Limited Edition Tiger Traxx ice cream is sold throughout the baseball season. Be sure to look for free tastings of our many flavors at Comerica Park when the Tigers are home.
From Chicago Road to Chicago, Illinois, we understand the tenacity of the Chicago Bears and embrace their winning traditions. Their storied history is not unlike ours. Who says you can’t enjoy some Bear Traxx ice cream on a bright November day?
The Grand Hotel is a third-generation family-owned establishment that is a summer tradition for families across America. Hudsonville is delighted to be a part of this family tradition and is served exclusively at Sadies Ice Cream Parlor at The Grand Hotel. You can enjoy a taste of summer with our Grand Hotel Summer Celebration ice cream.
Michigan is known for its pristine lakes, spectacular summers and winter wonderland. We partner with Pure Michigan and take advantage of the great Midwest dairy land it offers us to obtain the freshest milk for our ice cream.
STATE OF THE ART FACILITY
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.
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.
