UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Falcon Foods are produced by the UWRF students in the university plants. The plants have been in operation since 1983. Students work under the direction of a full-time plant manager and produce a variety of products including cheese, ice cream and meats, which are available for purchase at Freddy's Dairy Bar.
The primary goal of the plant is to provide valuable learning experiences for students to take with them and put to use in their future careers. They are involved in all aspects of production, sanitation and quality control. Students have the unique opportunity to work in a commercial plant setting.
The dairy plant uses raw milk from the UWRF Mann Valley Farm and is primarily self-supporting. The meat plant receives raw product from the UWRF laboratory farms and local farmers.
