Eat Local Ice Cream, support British Farming

The hot weather is also a great excuse to eat more ice cream to stay cool!

Do you prefer a cone or tub, single or double scoop, sauce or no sauce? Whichever way you choose to eat your cool treat this summer, be sure to back British farming. Supporting the industry has never been more important, so what better way than to treat yourself than with a scoop of British dairy ice cream on a warm summer’s day!

Here are some local producers, many encourage site visits, so why not go explore them.

Langage Farm near Plymouth, the largest producer of Devonshire clotted cream, also supplies yogurts, soft cheese, and over 40 flavours of luxury Ice cream. As an innovative way to secure fertility of the farm soils and provide a reliable source of electrical and thermal energy to the dairy products factory, Langage Farm invested in an anaerobic digestion plant and produces electricity and heat for use in the dairy products factory, and a residual biofertiliser is applied to the farmland to grow forage for the Jersey Herd, ANYONE interested in a visit, I’m sure we can get SHARE to arrange this. !!
