American Folk Festival features Maine-based ice cream

MONROE, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The American Folk Festival kicks off in Bangor on Friday and will feature 31 food vendors, many of which are based locally in Maine.

One vendor is Stone Fox Farm Creamery based out of Monroe. Owners Bruce and Kathy Chamberlain started the ice creamery in 2009 as a post retirement project. The couple made ice cream in their garage and sold at farmers markets, they said they never expected that six years later, they'd employ four people, grow 25% each year, and have their 35 flavors of ice cream sold in about 70 stores statewide. 

Bruce and Kathy said they love what they do, and Bruce added that his favorite part of the business and watching people enjoy their ice cream.

"It just blows me away every time I see people eat it, and then they come back and tell us it's the best ice cream they have ever eaten. And I never get tired of that," said Bruce.

Stone Fox Farm Creamery will be at the American Folk Festival all weekend with 20 of their best flavors available.
