Howling Cow Dairy Education Center & Creamery

  • Address: 100 Dairy Ln., Raleigh, NC 27603
  • Area: South Raleigh

About

For decades, NC State’s dairy processing plant, the Feldmeier Dairy Processing Lab, has been primarily known for their delicious ice cream, a State Fair favorite. The most recent renovations in 2005 added the ability to provide cutting-edge food science innovations and research on popular locavore foods such as farmstead cheeses. 100% — yes, ALL — of the plants current operating costs are generated by revenues from the sale of dairy products, research grants, and fees from educational seminars. The addition of a full-service Creamery Café and Dairy Education Center at our farm will help increase our ability to both educate and enhance teaching and outreach capabilities. A true destination learning center, visitors to the Lake Wheeler farm Howling Cow Dairy Education Center and Creamery, can enjoy an ice cream sundae while watching video feeds of the plant in operation, or discovering the many facets of North Carolina’s dairy industry on interactive video exhibits. State-of-the-art Distance Learning technology will bring expanded dairy support to participants nationwide.
