Grab a delicious specialty coffee from one of the many coffee shops in the Stevens Point Area, such as Ruby Roasters, a hometown and national favorite with locations in Nelsonville and downtown Stevens Point. Also downtown is Emy J's, a coffeehouse and cafe that offers premium coffee drinks made with house-roasted coffee beans. Be sure to stop by Mission Coffee in Plover or The Landmark in Amherst for more yummy coffee and milk combos!
Hold the espresso
If coffee isn't your thing, have no fear- there are plenty of other ways to get your dairy fix! Stop by the Stevens Point Area Co-op and grab a delicious bottle of local, organic milk to add to your cereal or granola from Main Grain Bakery.
Adventures until the cows come home
Interested in something more hands-on for the whole family? Visit Feltz's Dairy Store for a farm tour and get a live demonstration of their robotic milking facility. Tours are available every Saturday at 1 pm or can be set up by email or by calling. While visiting ask to taste some of their delicious crafts cheeses or their very own King Cone ice cream flavor!
For more fun, join the Stevens Point Area in celebrating June Dairy Month at the Portage County June Dairy Breakfast on Gary and Patty Edelburgs' farm in Amherst Junction. Indulge everything from cheese curds to pancakes from 8 am to 12 pm, and be sure to bring the family!
If you need a cool down or a late night treat, ice cream is always the answer! Grab a foot high cone at Belt's Soft Serve (beware the large cone!), a delectable flurry or sundae at Carl D's, or try out one of the 100+ flavors of award-winning homemade ice cream at King Cone at their Plover or Amherst locations.

June Dairy Month wouldn't be complete without fresh cheese curds! The Stevens Point Area has a large assortment of cheese curd dispensaries to satisfy your cheese curd craving.
