Made in Michigan - Hudsonville Ice Cream

Hudsonville Ice Cream started when a group of local farmers who were looking for a better way to sell their dairy products banded together to form a new co-op. They chose a location on Chicago Drive in Hudsonville, Michigan, for this new venture, and in 1895 the Hudsonville Creamery was born.

In the beginning, Hudsonville Ice Cream was sold through local grocery and convenience stores, and individual dip shops located primarily in West Michigan. Over time, independent grocery stores gave way to regional clients, allowing Hudsonville Ice Cream to be sold in larger markets. Today, Hudsonville Ice Cream is available throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.

Cool Monica! We love ice cream here at my house! I almost always have some in my freezer. Too bad they don't bring it down here in West Virginia or I would try some!

I'm sitting here on the couch shivering, and now, for some inexplicable reason, I want ice cream...

Thanks a lot!

This flavor looks delish! Don't you adore local products that make it? I just saw Keetha's comment, and Marion Indiana, where she is from, is less than 30 miles from me. When I go to Walmart now, I specifically look for made in USA items. Yesterday I was looking for socks...and they ALL came from China! Grrr.
