Our Story
Michigan Cream & Sugar Ice Cream Company

is a collaboration of HORIZONS Conference Center, Michigan Sugar Company and the Michigan Milk Producers Association (MMPA). Our scoop shop in Uptown Bay City serves up hand-crafted ice cream featuring the freshest and highest-quality locally sourced ingredients we can find. We stand firmly behind our goal of serving the finest ice cream products Michigan has to offer and bringing together farms and families. As a business of HORIZONS, we are committed to delivering exceptional service, superior presentation and outstanding quality.

The Cream

At Michigan Cream & Sugar, our ice cream is made creamy and decadent with milk from the dairy farmer owners of the Michigan Milk Producers Association. From family-owned farms in the Great Lakes region, each cow produces almost 3,000 gallons of some of the highest-quality milk in the U.S. MMPA farmers are passionate about caring for their cows and leaving the land better than they inherited it, which means a fresher, better product for you.

The Sugar

Everything we make includes all-natural Pioneer® Sugar made by Michigan Sugar Company, a grower-owned cooperative that’s been making Michigan life sweeter since 1906. Throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region and part of Ontario, 160,000 acres of sugarbeets are grown each year, which Michigan Sugar Company processes into more than 1.3 billion pounds of sugar. Many of Michigan Sugar Company’s farm families are fourth- and fifth-generation sugarbeet farmers, and are true stewards of their land. They are committed to growing the highest-quality, most sustainable crops possible, and keeping sweet Pioneer® Sugar the way it’s been for more than 100 years. Locally Grown, Locally Owned.
