From Our Dairy to Your Table

From Our Dairy to Your Table

Developed locally on MTSU's campus by students in the Agribusiness program, MTSU milk (especially chocolate) is notorious in the local community for its rich flavor. Facilities and production has grown enough over the last decade that, in June 2017, the College of Basic and Applied Sciences and the School of Agriculture partnered with state and local businesses to launch the official MTSU Creamery. Outside of providing milk for our on-campus facilities (Phillip's Bookstore, Aramark PODs, Dwight's Mini-Mart (KUC 200), MTSU Pharmacy), the product is also being sold at the following Middle Tennessee retailers: Hattie Jane's Creamery, City Café Restaurant, Rutherford Farmers Co-op, Lascassas Feed Store, and Two Fat Men Catering.

Agriculture feeds the world. We take you there.

Agriculture feeds the world. We take you there.

The importing and exporting of food products is a multi-billion dollar business. Agribusiness students have the opportunity to travel abroad and study this business firsthand. In addition to yearly trips to Canada and Argentina, students can learn about the international wine industry in a course taught entirely outside of the United States. And more opportunities are being developed yearly!
