Fruitcake and Jelly Kitchen, since 1934, has produced its famous fruitcakes on campus and today student workers, along with supervisors, bake more than 40,000 cakes a year. Visitors are welcome in the kitchen where a variety of jellies and the college's delicious apple butter are also made and sold.
The College of the Ozarks greenhouses, located east of Edwards Mill, are home to the Clint McDade orchid collection. Mr. McDade, one of the school's first students, donated the nucleus of the collection, which today numbers more than 7,000 plants. Individual orchids and other houseplants are for sale at the greenhouse.
