Our big news this month is that we have decided it is time to make plans to open our own ice cream parlour, and to do so in our home town of Ledbury.

We have identifed suitable premises, a lovely grade 2* listed building on the Top Cross, right in the town centre, pictured. The financial arrangements are all agreed, we just now need to get  the legals finalised and obtain planning approval from the County Council.


There wil still be a lot of planning and fitting out work to be done once we take possession of the building, so realsitically we probably won’t be opening until 2018. However once we do you will be able to enjoy the full range of our award winning ice creams in comfortable and slightly quirky surroundings. We also plan on serving high quality coffee, milk shakes, smoothies and cakes, and we anticipate being open 7 days a week. In addition you will be able to buy tubs of ice cream to take home.

We  have had lots of really positive comments from local people about our plans. We can’t wait to get started on this major new development for the business, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming lots of you in person at the parlour.



Our summer specials are selling well, as a reminder they are:

St Clements Ice Cream. Made from freshly squeezed orange and lemon juices, this is a wonderfully light, fresh and tangy ice cream for those warm summer days which are hopefully just round the corner!

Coconut & Dark Chocolate Ice Cream. A richer and more exotic ice cream, in flavour not unlike a “Bounty” bar, and with a bit of texture from the blending in of some dessicated coconut. An indulgent treat.



We had a great day at the Ledbury Fair on 9th July (our stand is pictured in front of the Feathers Hotel). We had sold all of our stock after lunch, sent for more, and sold out all of that by 4pm! We also had a good event at Milton Keynes last weekend.


Sadly we have had to cancel our attendance at Banbury in August, so our next event will be the 2 day Thame Fair on Sept 30th/ Oct 1st.



We are very sad to let you know that Handley Organics in Ledbury will no longer be stocking our 500ml take home tubs of ice cream. You can still buy the 100ml tubs in Cameron & Swan and The Homend Bakery. However we understand many people will be disappointed that we now do not have an outlet in the town for our 500ml take home tubs, as we are.

So in the meantime, until we hopefully open the Ice Cream Parlour at the Top Cross, we would be happy to personally deliver two tubs or more to any address in Ledbury town at a special promotional price of £5.50 per tub (for a limited period only). Deliveries are normally on a Thursday and obviously someone has to be in as we cannot leave ice cream on the doorstep! Alternatively you can collect from The Dairy, Churches Farm, Bromsberrow HR8 1SA. To take advantage of this offer please contact the office on the number below or email Alison on
