Description:

During your self-guided visit, students will participate in numerous interactive exhibits. Three of those will allow them to use their imagination to develop, package, and market a virtual ice cream flavor. Additionally, they will learn about the ice cream making process from raw ingredients to finished goods and how we market our top-selling ice cream and iced tea.
Students will also learn what it was like in the early days of Turkey Hill Dairy and how we grew from a small family-owned dairy farm into the national production facility we are today. While here, learn what it was like to be a milk delivery driver, milk our mechanical cows, and sample our products.
In our Turkey Hill Taste Lab, each student will bring their virtual flavor to life as our instructor walks them through the process step by step. Beginning with a basic white ice cream mix, students will add the proper amount of flavoring, variegate and other inclusions to develop their perfect recipe during a Turkey Hill Ice Cream Production 101 course. When complete, students will enjoy a pint of their own.
NEW: Turkey Hill Tea Discovery Class, where your students can discover, taste and experience tea from around the world in a way they have never before. Learn about tea origins, aromas and unique flavors from one of our tea experts.
The Turkey Hill Experience is group friendly, offers special pricing for student groups and is very flexible with our operating hours.
