This is a great place especially if you have kids. there is a mock factory that you can tour, gift shop, and make your own ice cream. There is also a huge cow outside. Enjoy

Took my 2 kids here and we were all pretty underwhelmed. Not too much to do, you could do everything in about a 1/2 hour. It's cute but just nothing we would ever go to again.

This visit was far beyond expectations; in fact, it was such a great visit and tour, I am still impressed. Whatever your family does, you do need to reserve a spot at the Taste Lab, in advance, because the experience of making your own Ice Cream was a great deal of fun - and I'm 62. Turkey Hill as the...

We were recommended by friends to go on this tour; however, it was not worth the cost. We went with family. The youngest in our group was 25. The facilities are wonderful. You learned the process of taking the raw milk and creating delicious treats. You get to milk a fake cow, see an antique milk truck, and create your... More

Turkey Hill Experience is great for all ages. You learn how the milk gets from the cow to your refrigerator. You can even milk a (fake) cow. Using a computer, you can create your own flavor of ice cream, design the carton and then make a commercial for it. There are free samples of ice cream and ice tea. Gift... More

We had a wonderful and fun time at this attraction. It was for the ice cream lover in all of us! The best part was making our own flavor of ice cream. The interactive displays were informative and a fun experience.

This is very good for young children with interactive experiences and just plain fun things to do. It takes about 1 hour to explore the interactive stuff and we bought the extra "Taste Lab" experience where you make your own ice cream flavour. This was the last activity on our day of touring and we had one very happy and... More

We visited with two kids, 6 and 8. They loved it! We also did the ice cream lab which I highly recommend. We learned a lot of cool things about our favorite dessert and got to make our own concoction in the lab. We also got to taste current ice creams and drinks. Come ready to eat some icecream, especially... More
