Wonderfully sweet ice cream cones and treats are the perfect staple of every great summer. It’s waffle cone weather, so grab a scoop of one of their unique flavors and watch as it’s made at Kelley Country Creamery!

Here’s the Scoop

Located in Fond du Lac, the family-owned shop by the Kelley family features 22 irresistible flavors of ice cream, plus creative rotating seasonal recipes. Choose from cones, or browse several cold cases lined with dipped bars, cookie sandwiches, take-home pints, and ice cream cakes galore!

Kelley’s Creamery proudly makes its sweet creations from dairy from the family’s 200-acre farm. On the farm, 65 Holsteins provide nutritious Grade A milk that is transformed into some of the creamiest ice creams around.

The secret to their delicious ice cream—a herd of happy cows! The Kelleys, who are dedicated to sustainable agriculture, keep their cows on green pastures that they believe is key to the highest milk quality and taste.

A Window to Delicious

Inside the shop, visitors are greeted with a smile-inducing aroma of fresh goodies. But a visit to Kelley’s isn’t just about the sweet smells or chilled desserts – it’s a learning experience in the making!

Families can stop by the viewing window in the parlor to watch live ice cream making. This free activity is a fun bonus for children of all ages!

Vintage churns are also on display and showcase the evolution of ice cream creation and the hall walls contain a ‘Flavor Graveyard,’ a commemorative nod to retired flavors.
