New in April of 2013, Nettie Marie's Homemade Ice Cream at the College Creamery in The Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks.
Featuring 12 flavors, including Bobcat Crunch, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Vanilla Bean Custard – plus house-made waffle cones!
The college has been making its own ice cream for several years and now they feature the student-made sweetness in their new ice cream parlor, the College Creamery. It's located in the lobby of The Keeter Center. The area has been renovated to invoke the nostalgia of the ice cream parlors of yesteryear.
The new ice cream parlor is serving up ice cream classics chocolate and old-fashioned vanilla, as well as specialty flavors such as Bobcat Crunch, which features oatmeal cookies, toasted almonds, pecans, and white chocolate chips. Sorbets, like Blueberry Basil, are also served as part of the Creamery's 12 featured flavors. If you're feeling a little adventurous, try the Black Cow flavor. Black Cow is a swirl of root beer sorbet and vanilla bean ice cream. Imagine a new kind of root beer float!
The delicious desserts are made from fresh cream and all-natural ingredients. The process of making the special ice cream begins before the sun rises, when College of the Ozarks students milk 60 Holstein, Guernsey, and Jersey cows at the W. Alton Jones Campus Dairy. Once the milk is collected, students pasteurize, bottle, and deliver it to The Keeter Center. There, another group of hard-working students turn the farm-fresh cream into Nettie Marie's Homemade Ice Cream, named in honor W. Alton Jones' daughter Nettie Marie. Farming and the use of farm-raised products has always been a part of the College's 106-year heritage that allows students to work, instead of pay, for their education.
A perfectly sweet adventure for you and your entire family!
Hours: Students serve Nettie Marie's Homemade Ice Cream 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
