The Cornell Ice Cream Story

Made of the highest-quality milk from Cornell’s own dairy cows, our rich and creamy premium ice creams are handcrafted in small batches by student apprentices and their professional mentors. Discover for yourself why generations of Cornellians have adored our sweet selection of favorite flavors and one-of-a-kind creations. Your enjoyment of this product supports essential education and outreach programs in the Department of Food Science.
