Hudsonville Ice Cream

Here’s a bit of background on Hudsonville:

Hudsonville Ice cream was founded in 1926 in Hudsonville, Mich. and started out producing six flavors of ice cream.  The company moved into their current location in Holland , Mich. in 2004.

Hudsonville is a small, family-owned business that is committed to supporting Michigan and investing in the state. When the company was sold to its current owner in 2003, the most important details were to continue producing ice cream using the same recipe that began the company’s success and to stay local to Michigan – both traditions have held.  In fact, one of the sons of the original owners of Hudsonville continues to share his knowledge and participates actively at Hudsonville.

Currently, Hudsonville makes more than 30 flavors in 1.75-quart containers and sells them in grocery stores. Additionally, more than 50 flavors are available in 3-gallon tubs, which are scooped in local ice cream shops. Hudsonville is now sold throughout Michigan along with selected areas of Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana.

The company also has a commitment to using farm-fresh and local ingredients whenever possible – and milk even goes from cow to carton in under 36 hours, which makes a great impact on the flavor and quality of the ice cream. Other locally sourced ingredients include cherries from Grand Traverse County and flavorings from Jogue in Northville.
