Simply Natural Creamery celebrates 1st annual ice cream festival

AYDEN, N.C. (WNCT) — I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! And to celebrate National Ice Cream month, Simply Natural Creamery in Ayden decided to throw a festival.

There were just over 7,000 people at Simply Natural’s first annual ice cream festival.

“We had chocolate, fudge, butter pecan, and vanilla,” said one festival attendee.

The festival also had food vendors, hay rides, local produce and shopping tents. “It’s a local business supporting the local community,” said Michael Fulcher, marketing director for Simply Natural.

And some of the customers’ favorite part about the ice cream is that it comes from the cows right here on the farm.

“Everybody loves the flavor, that’s what really brings people back – the high quality,” said Fulcher. “People like that we are a local, natural dairy, we do everything here ourselves. We’re the only dairy east of Chapel Hill that does this.”
