The Best Ice Cream In Wisconsin Is Found In The Most Unusual Place And You’ll Love It

If you’ve never spent time in Madison, you might not know that the University of Wisconsin in Madison has its very own dairy. And that dairy produces the very best ice cream you’ve ever tasted, along with milk, cheese and tea. Maybe it’s that it feels like a rare treat. Maybe it’s that the ice cream is as fresh as can be from milk that’s just as fresh. I don’t know why Babcock Dairy ice cream just tastes so much better than all the others – I just know that it does.

There’s something so nostalgic and also a bit silly about getting ice cream from a university dairy – especially since UW-Madison’s Dairy dates back to the 1800s. It’s certainly unique. And helps us live up to our Dairy State moniker.

The Babcock Hall Dairy store first opened in 1951 and ever since, those in the know in Madison have been partaking in the delicious treats they put out. Aside from the Babcock Hall store, you can nab the sweet treats from the stand in Memorial Union or even at the Kohl Center.
