Tea Celebrates National Peach Month

thumb_65b9acc38815abfThe Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks is hosting an afternoon tea celebrating National Peach Month today, Saturday, August 23, from 1-3 p.m.

Specialty tea sandwiches, sweet breads and decadent desserts will be served. Guests attending the tea also will enjoy a student demonstration of how farm-fresh ice cream is made at Nettie Marie’s College Creamery, which is located inside The Keeter Center.

The process of making the special ice cream begins before the sun rises, when College of the Ozarks students milk 60 Holstein, Guernsey and Jersey cows at the W. Alton Jones Campus Dairy.

Once the milk is collected, students pasteurize, bottle and deliver it to The Keeter Center, where another group of hard-working students turn the farm-fresh cream into Nettie Marie’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Tickets for the tea are $25 (plus service charge and tax) for adults; children 12 and under are $13 (plus service charge and tax). Visit www.keetercenter.edu or call 417-690-2122.
