How Central Smith Ice Cream Saved The Day For McLean Berry Farm At Maplefest

Kind gestures speak volumes about the power of collaboration and community, and there is no better recent example of that then how Central Smith came to the rescue of McLean Berry Farm over the weekend during their popular Maplefest weekend at the farm.

The family-owned business McLean Berry Farm wrote this in a Facebook post about how Central Smith—owned by the Scates family—stepped up bigtime for them…

“Thanks to the amazing folks at Central Smith Creamery - toffee on snow at maplefest was and is saved!

Our regular go to for food grade popsicle sticks discountinued selling them and we were in a panic last week trying to figure out what to do! Luckily our friends at Central Smith went above and beyond and sold us a giant case of popsicle sticks that they use!

We love this family so much already - they've done countless things to help our farm and family over the years (and even let us borrow daughters of theirs to work on the farm at various times!) - whether it was creating family memories as kids for a pit stop for ice cream, Spanish translations, raising hard workers or saving toffee on snow demonstrations - we're so grateful for them and their kind, loving, community focused, supportive business ❤️”
