the Turkey Hill Experience

The Turkey Hill Experience features interactive exhibits allowing you to learn about dairy culture, the story of Turkey Hill Dairy, and how the company's ice cream and iced tea flavors are selected and created. You will truly experience what it's like to be a Turkey Hill Dairy ice cream maker for a day, including the opportunity to create your own virtual ice cream flavor. In addition, you can sit in our vintage milk truck, milk our mechanical cows, star in your very own Turkey Hill commercial, and enjoy plenty of free samples of iced tea and ice cream! Visit the Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, PA - right here in Lancaster County.

Travel the world of tea

Travel the world of tea.

Because there are so many things to do at our attraction, how much time you spend at the Turkey Hill Experience will depend on your group or family. But we suggest allowing approximately 60-90 minutes for only the Experience. If you plan on visiting both the Experience and the Taste Lab, we suggest allowing 90-120 minutes.

Cool off from the hard work with a stop in our blast freezer. Then, learn how we test our ice cream with a sample taste test of your own.
