With the dramatic turn around in day time temperatures has seen a rapid increase in visitor numbers to the East Coast. So this evening as l attempt to write a coherent blog, l must confess to being absolutely knackered. We have been inundated by happy customers which is excellent. It is a wonderfully satisfying feeling watching small children peering into the ice cream cabinet trying to decided which flavour to choose and then what sort of cone, or visitors, taking photos of themselves with their voluptuous ice cream sundaes.
A few years ago we were dairy farmers running a commercial herd of fresian Holsteins, trying to make a go of it on the back of unsustainable low milk prices, now, we have diversified and produce a high value product that people actually want to buy together with our on-farm ice cream parlour & cafe which welcomes locals & tourists alike with a smile.
From now until the schools go back in September, providing the weather holds, we are going to be extremely busy, and that is an understatement. The production team are busy making ice cream to ensure that we & our wholesale customers do not run out of our delicious, creamy ice cream made, of course, with the milk from mr moo's dairy cows!
