About Us:

Beginning in 1975, The Button Family built a dairy set-up using timber grown on the land, and an old sawmill to mill the lumber. Since that time, the farm has been used to produce feed for cattle and milk for the wholesale market as well as merchandising cattle.

As the family has grown, the farm has become more diverse. Hay and silage are grown for sale. Dairy and beef cattle are raised and marketed. Along the way, a new sawmill has replaced the old one.

In October 1997, we began yet another chapter in our farm history with the construction of a new ice cream stand. This too, began by felling trees for logs, milling logs for lumber, and finally building the structure. Buttonwood Farm Ice Cream opened on May 14, 1998.

With our history of making things from scratch, it seemed only natural that our ice cream would follow suit. We researched old recipes, purchased equipment, and began with only premium ingredients. Through practice, we have learned to make the best ice cream available anywhere.
