Rowlestone Farmhouse ice cream embraces the diversified enterprises that have evolved on a small family run dairy farm in the foothills of the Black Mountains of Herefordshire.
Whilst the handmade ice cream is at the core of the business the ‘open farm’ and the small exempted campsite are integral to the whole and complement each other. The farm opens at Easter until the end of September. Visitors can access play areas and a woodland adventure trail via a wildlife garden, walk through ancient semi-natural woodland and flower meadows taking in the wonderful views this landscape affords. Campers are provided with clean, well maintained and up to date wash and shower facilities. Grass Pitches are provided either with or without electricity. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
The ice cream parlour shows off the products made in the adjacent ‘production room’ ;a process which can be viewed most Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer. Light lunches, snacks , tea, coffee and cold drinks are also provided.
Many events are attended throughout the summer months; shows, fetes, fund raisers and food festivals with Ice cream and sorbet dispensed either from a cart or traditional serve overs.
Private functions and weddings may also be catered for.
