The process of making our special ice cream begins before the sun rises, when College of the Ozarks® agriculture students milk Holstein, Jersey, and Guernsey cows at the W. Alton Jones Campus Dairy. Once the milk is collected, students pasteurize and bottle the milk. Another group of hard-working students turn the farm-fresh milk into Nettie Marie’s Homemade Ice Cream, named to honor W. Alton Jones’ wife, Nettie Marie. Farming and the use of campus-raised products has always been a part of the College’s 110-year heritage that allows students to work, instead of paying for their education. Enjoy the fresh dairy ice cream made daily by our Hard Work U.® students. You won’t find better ice cream in Branson, MO.
