Owner description: 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.

Watch the cows being milked. Wonderful homemade ice cream. Kids can feed the goats. Enjoyable gift shop.

This is a nice place but there are some fairly simple things they could do to make it a lot more user friendly. First they need another bathroom as one bathroom is not enough, we all stood in line several times. Also if you children are feeding the animals, they need to wash their hands before eating the food and there are non working hand cleaning stations outside and inside you have to stand in line to use the sink in the bathroom!! so should fix the outdoor hand sanitizers and put a couple inside outside of bathroom area that could be used. then some simple signs above the counter telling you which line is for what. one for ice cream, one for maze tickets. otherwise there is a huge group of people and you get to the front and are told you are in the wrong line for ice cream. These changes would help your customers a lot and other than another bathroom are very cheap to institute. Thanks. We had a good time there and ice cream and mazes were good.

This active dairy farm has animals to pet and feed, a play area and best of all a viewing room where the public can watch the milking process. There are lots of goodies -- especially ice cream. It's a short distance from all other attractions, so check it out -- especially if you have little ones and/or you just like cows!!!

We made a short stop here on our way back to Sturgeon Bay. Unfortunately we didn't get to view the cows in the parlor. (Not that we were crushed, as our BIL milked cows for 20 years so it wasn't anything new.) However, that is kind of the main attraction. There is a very cute little gift shop and our one-year-old loved the animals outside. The little goats were so cute and he got to pet them. They also had a baby pony. Had some nice photo ops as well. We were glad we stopped.
