Cedar Crest Ice Cream is a strong, local company and their ice cream is certain to be a popular stop for visitors. Their family’s story and the company’s history is another shining example of how agriculture is woven into our state’s culture.”
“This extraordinary gift from Cedar Crest Ice Cream brings us over $12 million raised-to-date towards our $13 million capital campaign goal. I can see it now – next year at this time, visitors will be lining up for their favorite ice cream and enjoying it on the patio.” exclaimed Kim Kowieski, Farm Wisconsin Director of Operations. “It is another important step in making our vision for the center a reality.”
