It is not easy to find pasteurized (non-homogenized) real milk these days....I've tried. Then I had the opportunity to find Hartzlers! I mainly wanted to make my own paneer (whole milk cheese of India), and mozzerella cheese. You canNOT do it with any other milk bought in a regular store - I have tried. NOW, I stop at Hartzler's weekly... More

This place is one of the best Ice Cream places that I have ever tasted. I know they do a lot more than just ice cream but that was by far my favorite part.

I go to college in Wooster and this is one of the best places to get ice cream anywhere. They use their own ingredients and you can taste a difference. Their ice cream is delicious and fairly priced, I don't know that there is anywhere better.

My husband and I come here occasionally for a sundae. I absolutely love their soft serve ice cream...it is so fresh tasting and actually has a unique, whipped texture. Amazing. My husband has a slight dairy sensitivity, but somehow is never bothered by this ice cream! I think its because it's so pure. Prices are reasonable and the staff are... More

This dairy has it right. They have the best egg nog I've ever pooped down my throat. Their custard is good too, but on this visit we stopped only for the egg nog. It's only available two months of the year and I always count down to it.

We discovered this place 2 months ago and now make a weekly trip there. Their frozen custard is awesome and the homemade ice cream rocks. Large vanilla custard sundae with peanut butter sauce and hot fudge rocks. Great stuff.

If you love hand-dipped ice cream, then Hartzler's is the place to go. They have several flavors to choose from and you can even take some home with you. Hartzler's also sells milk from their dairy and sandwiches. They try to provide a natural product without chemicals and additives.

What a treat! This is not for the faint of heart. Outstanding ice cream and not soft serve. A small cup was plenty and I loved their Strawberry cheesecake. Highly recommended 😊

We live in Orrville and drive over to Hartzler Dairy for ice cream often. The creamy ice cream never disappoints although some flavors do. Don't believe some of those negative comments that compare Hartzler with Dairy Queen. There is no comparison. This is the real thing.
