If you are on campus, particularly in the summer, you MUST stop here. There is a very convenient location in the MSU Union and another that we didn't get to visit. The ice cream is amazing. Simply the best. Great flavors!

Fresh made and a must stop when at MSU. Favorite of all. Plan on a bit of a wait time but its much better now in the summer with the addition of the dairy trailer.

The MSU Dairy is a true delight. Offering tours during limited hours, and great ice cream and cheeses the rest of the time. The service is great, product is wonderful. A great way to imprint the MSU campus on young children!!!
