National Milk Producers Federation Farmer Focus: Family's Ice Cream Thrives Through Pandemic

Wed, 18 Aug 2021 10:05:50 CDT

National Milk Producers Federation Farmer Focus: Family's Ice Cream Thrives Through Pandemic From a press release by the National Milk Producers Foundation, a small, family farm found a way to not only survive the COVID-19 pandemic but thrive.

The Rucks family not only took care of their herd of 1,500 on Milking R dairy in Okeechobee, Flordia, they were up until 2 or 3 a.m. each night making ice cream.

Sutton Rucks, his wife, Kris, and their two children, Lindsey and Garrett, started making ice cream before the pandemic to share during farm tours.

“People were just raving about the ice cream,” Sutton says. “We had a bunch of tours in the early spring of 2020, and it felt like we made more ice cream than we could give away in six months. Then COVID hit.”

According to the NMPF website, the family began posting their ice cream online for pick up. In 24 hours their ice cream supply was completely sold out.
