100 Dairy Ln, Raleigh NC 27603

Our current hours of operation are from 12pm – 7pm, seven days a week! Our full menu includes scooped ice cream, banana splits, sundaes, specialty coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, non-dairy smoothies, and milkshakes. We also have a variety of Howling Cow logo merchandise and take-home ice cream such as 4 oz. cups and pints. We are a cashless facility and accept credit cards for payment along with Apple Pay.  Due to biosecurity guidelines, our creamery does not allow pets on the property. We are located on the NC State Dairy Research and Teaching Farm and  ALL precautions are taken to protect our precious commodity  – the dairy cows.

For over half a century, generations of North Carolinians have savored our premium ice cream on NC State’s campus or at the North Carolina State Fair.  Howling Cow is made on NC State’s campus in the Department of Food, Bioprocessing, and Nutrition Science’s Feldmeier Dairy Processing Lab in Schaub Hall. Our traditional recipes start with fresh milk and cream that comes from our Raleigh farm, with top-quality ingredients added to create many delicious flavors.

Howling Cow is a tasty way to support the education of tomorrow’s dairy leaders — and our great state.
