Made Before Your Eyes

During your visit to the UConn Dairy Bar you may even have the chance to observe ice cream being made through the observation window in the Dairy Bar store. The ice cream production schedule cannot be guaranteed but is generally Monday – Friday from 11:00am-2:00pm.




The UConn Dairy Bar opened in 1953 to sell dairy products that were made by the Creamery. The Creamery was established in the early 1900s and bottled milk all the way up until 1991. Today, the Creamery makes ice cream according to its original recipe and sells this ice cream through the Dairy Bar retail establishment, along with a variety of cheeses.




The Dairy Bar still manufactures ice cream according to its original recipe from the early 1900’s. Today, over 200,000 customers visit the Dairy Bar every year to enjoy 24 different flavors of freshly prepared ice cream treats.

We welcome groups at the Dairy Bar and request that if you are bringing a large group to campus you notify us so we can be prepared for your visit.  We suggest pre-scooped orders that are ready upon your arrival so that your visit can go smoothly and quickly through the Dairy Bar. One week notice is required for arranging pre-scooped orders.  For more information please contact us at
