Locally owned dairy farm offers made-on-premises ice cream and Mexi-Hots (chili dogs) at bargain prices. I grew up 1 mile from this place and visit every time I return to my hometown. Much better than the over-marketed Penn State University Creamery ... Strawberry is wonderful, and Mint Chocolate Chip is a long-time favorite.

The ice cream is how I remember it; plentiful and delicious. Folks were outside the door waiting for a scoop of heaven on a hot summer afternoon; mine was chocolate marshmallow. My single scoop cup was so full I shared with a friend. I'd been away 30+ years and they didn't disappoint me; thanks!

We loved Meyer Dairy! It's on the opposite side of State College from Penn State so you never get the football weekend crowds, so that's a massive plus (if you want to stand in line for ice cream, you may as well go to The Creamery with all the alumni). Their ice cream is fantastic, but we really liked their... More

Meyers is a throwback to the old ice cream parlor days. Family owned for generations, they have their own farm and make most of their fare. People in the area have been coming for their milk, cheese and ice cream forever. Ah, the ice cream! It's some of the best out there. The range of flavors is amazing; and the... More

I.ve been going to Meyer Dairy since about 1970. We stopped after the PSU hockey game last night. I had a small black raspberry ice cream cone; it was huge and delicious. It would be nice if they would give you two flavors on a small cone; Still, it was a great value and excellent ice cream.

The ice cream is the best in the area. Not made with a bunch of fillers, hormones, and additives. I'm really tired of the Creamery. Best to support local businesses not state run dairies.

I get my milk at Meyer Dairy and love knowing that my milk comes from cows who live just a mile from my home! I also was a whole milk only devotee. I had to switch to skim after an illness and couldn't drink it -- it looked and tasted like white water -- till I tasted Meyer Dairy's skim... More
