UW-River Falls Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery Investment

Rest assured cheese curds will be on the production line when the University of Wisconsin-River Falls re-opens its Dairy Pilot Plant in 2023.

Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery, a lead partner in the project and renowned for its popular cheese curds product, has demonstrated its ongoing financial commitment this month with an additional $30K investment in the UWRF Dairy Pilot Plant’s renovation.

The company has donated a total of $150K to the project, earning a naming opportunity in the Dairy Pilot Plant.

In addition to financial support, Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery supports students by providing scholarships, internships and employment opportunities.

UWRF embarked on its $8 million renovation project ten years ago. When it opens next spring, the 6,500 square foot facility will be considered one of the most sophisticated in the country.
