The school is rightfully proud. Former Vice President, Joe Bidden, a self-discribed ice cream mavin came specifically to Cornell to taste the ice cream, and said it was "very good". So, it must be so. We tasted several varieties and agree. They also have other...More

The best ice cream made right where they teach and specialize in agriculture and food science. Delicious flavors and beautiful campus spots to see and enjoy the treat! We had no idea they produced so many dairy products.
