Join us on the weekends in the farm’s Palette and Pasture Barn. Gelato, milkshakes, hot drinks and cakes will be available for you to enjoy. You can relax inside the barn or outside in the beautiful country garden. Here you can choose from a huge range of traditional to the more unusual and exciting gelato and sorbet flavours. Our menu includes Warm Waffles, Gelato Freak Shakes and our amazing Sundaes. We have a choice of hot and cold drinks, light snacks and picnic lunches all made with homegrown/farm-reared or local produce.
We pick fruit growing in hedgerows and fields on our farm to make many of our ice cream syrups. These are handmade in the farmhouse kitchen and poured into the ice cream base to produce a host of delicious seasonal flavours. The ice cream factory is located next to the milking parlour. Whilst the cows are being milked their raw milk is poured into traditional churns and carried just a few metres to the factory where it is poured into the ice cream pasteuriser. It’s as fresh as it can possibly be, and like the majority of our flavours has 0 food miles.
Our cows graze outside on lush pasture as much of the year as possible. We have a relatively small herd in today’s dairy industry. It is our belief to look after our animals to the highest standards, let them graze outdoors, and most importantly have a happy healthy life. Because of this our cows are super friendly! We are red tractor assured.
Lots of Space
There is indoor and outdoor seating available. Animals to meet, pigmy Goats you can feed, rare breed pigs in the summer months, chickens, guinea fowl and of course the families beloved pets: Our 3 dogs, Mabel, Dolly and Tuppence, and Saffy and Ruby the cats, all of whom enjoy visitors and lots of attention! Rachel has a habit of surprising the family with new family editions – so don’t be surprised if when you visit there are more animals than mentioned!
The outdoor children’s play area has a pedal tractor race track and digger pit. There is a small indoor play area.
