“How is it that a humble ice cream cone vies for icon status with JoePa and the Nittany Lion Shrine? What is so unique about Penn State’s Berkey Creamery . . . that causes it to grow when other college creameries have been shrinking or disappearing altogether? What draws business professionals from all over the world to Penn State to learn the secrets of ice cream making in our famous Ice Cream Short Course? How did [Penn State] become ‘Ice Cream U’? . . . Penn State is famous for many accomplishments, beautiful campuses, outstanding faculty and students, successful alumni, and much more. This book concentrates on one of its most popular achievements—the Creamery—and how it has become one of Penn State’s great success stories.” —From the Introduction

From a modest start, the Creamery gradually developed into an internationally respected center for dairy education and research. Professional respect for the Creamery across the globe is matched by the enthusiasm of Penn State fans and alumni who consider the Creamery to be home to some of their happiest memories. Local author and historian Lee Stout weaves together stories of the Creamery and Pennsylvania’s agricultural past with a lighthearted and enlightening look at our enduring love affair with ice cream.
