Dairy Bar History & Awards
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. Check out these videos to learn more about the UConn Creamery. Brief History and Tour and The Evolution of UConn’s Creamery – From Ice Cream to Award-Winning Artisanal Cheeses.
