In the summer of 2017, Middle Tennessee State University made its milk available for retail sale for the first time in nearly 50 years.

The MTSU Creamery, which operates in conjunction with the School of Agribusiness and Agriscience, produces delicious milk and allows students to take part in the university’s Experiential Learning and Research Center.

Students work in the center seven days a week, which is based in Lascassas, to ensure quality product reaches MTSU’s milk-processing plant inside Stark Agribusiness Center on campus.

Formerly known as the MTSU Milk Plant, the MTSU Creamery produces high-quality whole white and chocolate milk varieties.

New equipment allows staff and students to fill 10 gallons of milk per minute into bottles, which are then distributed to Phillips Bookstore, Dwight’s Mini Mart in Keathley University Center and Aramark Provisions on Demand stores across campus.

Eventually, MTSU hopes to be able to produce enough milk that the dairy products can be sold in smaller, local stores across the state.

      Hi Cheryl,

      Please contact the MTSU School of Agriculture directly at (615) 898-2523. They should be able to help. Thanks!
