Turkey Hill Experience

June 6, 2011

Lancaster County has a new attraction which celebrates one of our biggest industries, Dairy!  The "Turkey Hill Experience" is an interactive, Disney-style attraction that's fantastic addition to your vacation itinerary.  Just a few of the exhibits include milking a mechanical cow, walking through a freezer and taking an 'ice tea personality test'!

Here's an overview from the Grand Opening press coverage:

Quick-Facts about the attraction include:

  • 26,000 square feet of exhibits, dining areas and retail space.
  • Nine interactive exhibit areas will allow visitors to learn more about dairy culture, the story of Turkey Hill Dairy, and how the company's top-selling ice cream and iced tea flavors are selected and created.
  • Exhibits will also feature Lancaster County cultural highlights, including some history of the lower Susquehanna River Valley and the rural farming area surrounding Turkey Hill Dairy.
  • Visitors will truly experience what it's like to be a Turkey Hill Dairy ice cream maker for a day, including the opportunity to create his or her own ice cream flavor.
  • An entrance fee will be charged to visit the main interactive exhibit area, but a portion of the exhibits will be open to the public at no charge.
  • The first floor of the Turkey Hill Experience will feature a large creamery, which will serve the general community.
