Ice Cream Bars Boost Income At Dairy Farm
“We have vanilla, chocolate, chocolate mint and cherry ice cream sandwiches available all the time because the demand is so high,” says Pete Tetzner, who along with his dad Greg, brother Matt, uncle Kevin, and aunt Jackie operate the business. Tetzner’s 100-cow, 600-acre dairy overlooks Lake Superior, not far from Bayfield and the popular Apostle Islands.
Like many family operations the Tetzner’s don’t spend a lot of money advertising their products. “We have many regular customers, and new ones hear about us by word-of-mouth and just stop in,” Pete Tetzner says. “They’re amazed that we have a nice store with products sold entirely on the honor system. We also sell locally to many stores and restaurants. People have come to recognize our name as quality products made right by a family operation.”
