Babcock Hall Dairy Store

Most know Babcock Hall for its ice cream, but the plant also produces award-winning cheeses and bottles locally produced milk. Please stop by the Dairy Store in Madison, WI, to enjoy our dairy specialties as well as breakfast and lunch items. The Babcock Hall Dairy Store offers short, guided tours from the second-story observation deck that overlooks the plant. One of our student workers, will lead small groups and describe the general processes at the plant, from the receiving the milk to the finished product. Visitors will be able to view production lines for milk bottling, ice cream and cheese making. Each tour usually lasts 15-20 minutes.
