Learning about the link between farming and food is as important as ever, and even CBeebies “Something Special” have been along to learn about the link between cows, milk and ice cream. Justin and his friends spent a day on the farm after finding Mr Tumbles bag on the farm. Justin got to meet the cows, watch Farmer Pye at work, tasted some delicious milk, helped Angela make ice cream, and had a well deserved ice cream at the end of the day.
We’re very lucky to be still be a working dairy farm, and our organic milk is used by Tootsies to make their delicious Ice cream here on the farm, and is used in both our Cafe’s, kitchen and is available for you to take home. Our milk is also used in all our drinks, plus we offer a free glass of milk with every child’s meal.
As an Arla farm we are also very pleased to be involved in UK Coffee Week, with Arla Organic Milk being one of the events partners. You can watch a bit about our involvement here>>. Or watch Ian try his hand at being a barista in the short video – When Farmer Meets Barista.
Plus our very free range chickens are also doing their bit laying delicious eggs.
See how many Chickens you can spot when you come to visit.
All our own produce is available in our Farm Shop, subject to availability.
