Schopf's Hilltop Dairy is a Door County family fun stop that's both educational and entertaining. You are invited to learn all about the Wisconsin dairy industry at Door County's largest dairy farm by experiencing it first-hand. Take everyone on a free, working dairy tour. Watch the ongoing milking operations, milk "Cookie" the cow and then taste the end result - 30 flavors of homemade ice cream in the Dairy View Country Store Ice Cream Parlor.

Enjoy the Dairy View Corn Maze each year, usually open from late summer through the end of October! Each year a new corn maze is designed around a theme. You can expect to be in the maze for approximately 2 hours of engaging fun. There is a small admission fee for the corn maze.

You must get their home-made ice cream cookies

Super fun stop for kids especially. You learn a lot about dairy farming. The store is always very clean looking and the maze is different every year.

Not impressive to me. I expected more. More ice cream flavors. More dairy products. Kids would love watching the milking though.

We stopped in to check out Dairy View. What a fun place for kids! They have a well maintained play area, kids can pet/feed goats, horses, calves, and pigs. For fall there was a huge corn maze and cheap pumpkins for sale. They offer excellent homemade fudge, ice cream, pizzas, sandwiches to eat on site, as well as fun little... More

The store itself was disappointing. The milking parlor demonstration was very interesting, almost totally automated. The ice cream was terrific. The outside animal displays were ok,

Over and above all, we are so pleased that you find our homemade ice cream to be "terrific!" ...since that is probably one of the most important reasons why we are here on the farm, tending our cows, to produce the finest dairy products we can. Thanks for taking the time to post your review. More

This is a place to bring the kids...outdoor petting area with animals and nice places to sit, also - they have a working dairy parlor behind glass where you can watch cows being milked...close to downtown Sturgeon Bay, just north of town..

Probably not for couples, seemed much more geared towards young children. Petting zoo area was fun though.

We stopped in to see if the dairy was like ours was in Texas. It was. So that didn't take long, but if you've never seen a dairy in operation, this is a great place to get to watch cows being milked. They have a nice, clean viewing room that looks right into the milking parlor. We thought it was... More

Reasonably priced. If you have kids this is an awesome place to spend some time. Old tractors, play area and live animals. We as adults had a blast and the ice cream was really good.

Whenever were in Door County we always stop here at least once for ice cream. It is a working dairy farm and guest can watch as they ready the cows for milking, but it's the ice cream that draws many. We especially like the Butter Pecan ice cream, and this time I tried the Strawberry. Strawberry was wonderful, it actually... More
