Utah’s Own Ice Cream
The average American will consume more than six gallons of ice cream this year (that’s nearly 44 pints). In fact, food statistics show that 90 percent of American households consume ice cream.
Utah has a rich history of providing the state with premium, amazingly creamy ice cream and ice cream treats. “Utah’s love affair with high-quality ice cream began when Gustav Wilster, a dairy professor at Utah State University, had the idea of making his Aggie ice cream famous by teaching his skills to students and then sending them out into the world. The achievements of his students and their contributions to ice cream manufacturing far exceeded his visions of success. His influence led to the founding of such landmark Utah companies as Casper’s Ice Cream and Farr Better Ice Cream.” (History of Aggie Ice Cream)
A valuable part of Utah’s Ice Cream production is the hard working dairy farmers located around the state. For example, Aggie Ice Cream is made from the milk produced on the student dairy farms at Utah State University. Casper’s Ice Cream is located in Richmond, a rural community with a rich dairy farm history. So naturally investing in Utah made ice cream also secures the future of many dairy farms across the state.
