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.

Whenever we visit Door County, we go to the Dairy View. Great ice cream, playground for kids and educational opportunities. It is a good venue for kids to learn about the origins of milk. They like watching the animals.

Visitors can watch cows being milked by machines, with the help of someone trained for this. Ice cream is available for purchase, and when we were there, there was also a corn maze for visitors to navigate.

Really neat self-guided tour of an operating dairy farm; learned quite a bit! They sell homemade ice cream in the store that is really good; none of that soft serve from DQ they call ice cream!

This is a mandatory stop for us every time we're in door county. It's free to play on their playground and $1 to fee the animals. You can watch cows get milked and enjoy some ice cream!

Great viewing of cows being milked the modern way and informative videos and printed media which point out facts and figures about the large dairy operation. Don't miss if you like dairy products and agriculture.

We take our teaching opportunities quite seriously here at Schopf's Hilltop Dairy, often hosting school field trips in our dedicated Dairy View classroom. Thanks very much for your appreciation. Life on the farm has dramatically changed, but we are still a family-owned and operated dairy. More

This is a great pitstop in door County. Bring the kids to pet the animals and relax outdoors. Go inside for an ice cream cone and certainly watch the cows being milked. Been here several times with friends and family

Pet the animals. See a milking operation, have a rich homemade ice cream in a cone or a cup. In fall they have homegrown squash at a very good price. A good experience. Don't forget the corn maze.
