On the 6th April we are going to be opening our gates for a farm open day…
We are aiming to give visitors a glimpse behind the scenes at the workings of our dairy farm where the magic happens and gallons of fresh milk are produced each day, the basis of our traditional Cornish ice cream recipe. We run a small herd of around 100 cows that produce the daily fresh milk that we use to make scores of delicious flavours of our ultra-creamy Cornish ice cream. The open day will be a fabulous chance to have some fun but also for visitors to learn a bit about how the farm is run.
There will be lots to do:
– Meet some of the animals on a guided tour of the farmyard
– See the farm machinery and learn what it does
– Watch a video about how our ice cream is made and see the factory from the viewing gallery
– Craft fun for the children
– Visit the shop and tearoom with its local crafts, foods and ice creams!
– Arts and crafts stalls
The open day will be a great opportunity to increase children’s awareness of the countryside and how food is produced. With greater access to the animals and also the factory’s viewing gallery, we hope it will give children an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the process from cow to cone whilst having lots of fun at the same time, a really interactive day for all.
The entry is free and there is plenty of parking. The Open day starts at 10am and doors close at 4pm. There will be 4 guided tours of the farmyard at set times: 11am, 12am, 2pm, 3pm. The other activities will take place throughout the day. Be sure to bring your wellies!
