A few miles from Beeston, down the country lanes is a popular kids attraction. Drumlan Hall Farm on Newton Lane, Tattenhall has this scrummy ice-cream farm. The ice cream is made with the milk from the herd of over 300 cows present on the farm, you can even watch them being milked before you sample some of their tasty ice-cream - hence the "cow to cone" experience.
Open 7 days a week (excluding Xmas and New Year) 10am - 5.30pm (April - October) 10.30am - 5pm (1st November - March)
Tel: 01829 770995
There are so many delicious varieties to taste -some 30 different ice-creams and sorbets are made. Flavours include raspberry and meringue, ferro rocher, choc cookie, aple pie and cream, christmas puding and even ne to keep Richie happy here - Boddington's (the cream of Manchester beer).!
Of course I was caught in the act sampling some...my choice was rhubarb and custard and a cranberry and Grand Mariner double cone. If Dave takes any more pics of this then I'll have to eat his choc cookie and white choc ice-cream!
They really are delicious and creamy - no artificial flavourings or colourings are used, just fresh home produced ingredients.
Th farm has a visitors's centre mainly aimed at younger children, providing educational and interactive information on milk production. The milking of the cows can also be viewed through a large window at 3.30pm.
When we were there a new cow had literally just been born!
The farm has several other animals, such as goats and rabbits and alpacas (type of llama) - which the children enjoy seeing.
A recent addition has been to provide rescue homes for several neglected owls.
don't take your ice-creams near the animals, especially the greedy goats. This little boy went to stroke the goat, who then licked his ice-cream, well his mum insisted that the goat could now finish it off!
In just a short time, mum had cleaned her youngster up and the newborn had struggled up on its wobbly legs - the farmer soon tagged the new arrival too!
