A New London Tradition

Michael's will reopen for the season April 15th.

Michael's Dairy has been in operation for over sixty years and has been located adjacent to Mitchell College since the founding of the institution in 1938. The Buscetto family acquired the dairy and the property from the Mitchell family in 1943 and renamed the Mitchell Dairy to the present name. Michael's Dairy was the last milk processing dairy in New London and continued that tradition into the 1970s.

In May 2006, Mitchell College acquired Michael's Dairy which has been managed by the Department of Hospitality & Tourism and operated by Mitchell College students.

What people say about Michael's Dairy:

"Michael's Dairy provides unmatched onsite service and fantastic ice cream for a nice price.
The sugar free options are terrific too. Best of all, our staff is always very, very happy."

"I wanted to surprise our employees last year with an unexpected treat, and Michael's Dairy ice-cream totally delivered.
I like the fact that the event promoted localism, and our employees are still talking about it months later."
