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.

Great ice cream and a great view as it is set on a hill overlooking the bay side of Door County. The adults love the food and the kids love the animals & playground equipment outside and watching the cows get miked inside. We did not have time to do the maze, but will go earlier next time. A lot... More

This place is small, but so are kids. They have a small park for the kids to play in, you can feed a few of the goats for a dollar, and there a few animals you can go and observe. Inside, they have a live viewing of cows being milked and a little dairy store where you can buy some... More

Hard to pick a favorite, but the Butter Pecan edges out the Vanilla most days for us! Great for a warm afternoon stop or to pick up a half gallon for later!!!

Stopped here based on reviews, and we were not disappointed! The ice cream was so good; you could taste the freshness! My son loved the animals; especially the baby goats! What a great spot to relax and enjoy a sunny day!

Fully functioning farm to dairy operation. Great for families to see how a dairy operation works and then follow that up with great ice cream treats. Just off Highway 42, east from Carlsville (turn by the winery). They have corn mazes in the fall as well.

This place ROCKS!!! My kids, ages 8,11,12 really enjoyed it! They got to watch the cows getting milked, then eat ice cream. Then, they enjoyed petting the animals for FREE, and you can also feed them for a small fee. They also have an area with small houses for little kids to play in along with slides and swings!!! **We... More

We were really looking forward to the visit to the dairy. The tour was a little disappointed because you are pretty much a self-guided walk through hall with a view of one of the milking rooms. Not much personal experience. The gift shop was nice and OMG...the ice cream was the best I had ever tasted. The outside area is... More

You have a window wall on our entire milking operation... no secrets here. We also provide a classroom experience for registered groups, but it is hard to provide a personal guide for our thousands of individual guests. We're so happy you enjoyed the petting zoo and we do put a great deal of effort into providing fresh, homemade ice cream... More

A must stop for anyone who enjoys ice cream. It's creamy and delicious and a great place to bring the kids. A room shows how the cows are milked and the milk is packaged. The store is well run and very informative.

We have been to Dairy View before, and always end up coming here when we get up to Door County! The ice cream is tasty and the staff is friendly! There are seats inside, or you can eat outside.
