C of O Attraction Guidebook: W. Alton Jones Dairy

I’ve come to the conclusion that the College of the Ozarks has just about everything on campus, including a college dairy!

The W. Alton Jones Dairy has produced milk from a Holstein Herd since the early 1940s and students regularly milk the 60 cows that call the college dairy home.

Both students enrolled at C of O and visitors benefit from this onsite dairy. The fresh milk is used in several different areas on campus including the student dining center and Dobyns Dining Room at the Keeter Center. The milk is also sold to faculty, staff, students and at the campus Farmers Market.

Students working at Nettie Marie’s Homemade Ice Cream at the Keeter Center also use the farm fresh cream from the college dairy to create delicious ice cream that visitors can enjoy. The ice cream parlor is located in the lobby of the Keeter Center and boasts at least a dozen different flavors of ice cream including mint chocolate chip, vanilla bean custard, bobcat crunch and more. The waffle cones are homemade too!

As it seems, all good things come from the W. Alton Jones Dairy, so definitely check it out!
