August/September 2018 Newsletter

 

 It’s been a pretty good summer weatherwise and not surprisingly that has been good news for us too.

  

PRODUCT UPDATES

Our summer special Raspberry & Limoncello Ice Cream has been a great success, but sadly the summer will soon be over so thoughts now need to turn to Autumn. In the meantime we still have stocks of Raspberry & Limoncello available in most sizes.

 Our Autumn special will be Rum & Raisin Ice Cream which will be available during the first half of September. The ice cream is infused with dark rum and the raisins are also soaked in the rum. A rich and warming ice cream as the nights start to draw in which will be available in all our normal sizes.

IN THE DAIRY

 The dairy has been very busy keeping up with demand this summer. In addition to making ice cream we have received and processed lots of strawberries and raspberries. However the damsons have not arrived yet, and apparently it’s going to be a fairly poor crop this year.

Although the hot weather is generally good news for an ice cream maker the one problem we have had this summer is getting hold of cream. The dry weather meant poor grazing and therefore cows not producing enough cream. This situation was especially acute in July when we were struggling to find sufficient cream anywhere in Herefordshire (we only use Herefordshire cream). However the good news is we survived and the situation has eased now!
