Dairy Bar History & Awards

The UConn Dairy Bar opened in 1953 to sell dairy products that were made by the UConn 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 cheese. The Dairy Bar also sells UConn eggs, artisnal cheese, and other frozen treats such as ice cream cookie sandwiches. Check out these videos and articles to learn more about the UConn Creamery: Brief History and Tour,  The Evolution of UConn’s Creamery – From Ice Cream to Award-Winning Artisanal Cheeses, Inside UConn's creamery where students churn ice cream and education (CT Insider).

Dairy Bar ice cream is consistently voted a favorite in local readers' choice polls and our cheese is also award-winning!! Check out some of our awards here.
