Maitland Mackie

We are deeply saddened, as a family and as a business, by the death of our dad and chairman Maitland Mackie. Maitland (76) died peacefully at home after a short illness. We will miss his wonderful enthusiasm, intellect, humour and energy.

 

Maitland was born here at Westertown farm and worked here all his life, overseeing the development from milk retail into ice cream.

 

A service of thanksgiving for his life will he held here at westertown on Friday at 1.30 pm.

Fire on the Farm

We confirm that a straw chopper went on fire this afternoon. David Hay, our farm manager was on the scene and able to ensure that the chopper was in an isolated, safe area before the fire took hold. The machine, known as “big bertha” chops straw bales for mixing into the silage food mix for the cows. We thank the local fire services for their speedy attendance and getting the fire under control within a very short time. We confirm that no one has been injured, all staff and the cows are safe and further that no ice cream has melted during the incident!

Mackie's ice cream - in the mix

Mix it with Mackie's

We encourage you to have fun with your ice cream. You can allow your Traditional (or any of our flavour range) to soften and then stir in your own desired flavour ingredients – that might be fruit sauces or jams for your own sweet ripples, sweeties for your children (or your own inner child), chocolate, biscuits, liqueurs...or whatever else might take your fancy!
