Back by popular demand! YPF is excited to host a company tour that will showcase a local business. This is a program you do not want to miss!
Join YPF as we head to Kelley Country Creamery. Take a tour, sample delicious ice cream and hear from owner Karen Kelley as she discusses ‘How to succeed in starting your own business’.
Karen and Tim Kelley, and their five children – Amie, Betsy, Heidi, Molly and Clark – operate this 200-acre farmstead dairy and tend the 65 Holsteins that provide the GradeA milk for their new Creamery. The farm is located on Kelly Road, a country road near Fond du Lac that has been the location for 39 Kelley families who have lived in this Irish community during the past 150 years.
The Kelleys are committed to sustainable agriculture, recognized for their farming practices, and keep their cows on green pastures, weather permitting which is important for milk quality and taste.
Kelley Country Creamery is a special place, with a viewing window in the ice cream parlor so visitors can watch the ice cream being made, while enjoying their favorite flavors at the same time. And the Creamery’s old-fashioned sun porch is a perfect spot to experience Wisconsin’s countryside while viewing a working dairy from the hillside that over looks the Kelley’s farm.
