British Farm House Ice Cream

Hand crafted in Leicestershire by the Thorp Family, using the wholesome milk from our own herd of dairy cows.

Our Story

Handcrafted in Leicestershire
Our story started over three generations ago when the Thorp family moved down to Leicestershire to continue farming their beloved herd of dairy cows. The farm is currently run by brothers Norman and Tony, along with Tony’s wife, Alison.

As a result of falling milk prices, we realised that a change of direction was needed to keep the farm going for future generations. With our love of all things sweet, ice cream was an obvious option for the family to explore and hence our business was born in 2007.

Not only do we use our own milk, but also source great tasting ingredients locally, wherever possible, to ensure a creamy and indulgent gelato style ice cream. The egg yolks for our Vanilla and Whisky and Ginger flavours come from the neighbour’s farm and the fresh strawberries used in Strawberries and Cream come from Manor Farm Fruits, Tamworth, just to name a few.

Our Ethos

We take our responsibility to the environment very seriously, both on our farm and in the wider community around us. To keep our carbon footprint to a minimum we use water from our own borehole around the farm and electricity from our solar panels. We also aim to source ingredients locally, reduce excessive packaging and used recyclable products wherever possible.

Not only do we use our own milk, but also source great tasting ingredients locally, wherever possible, to ensure a creamy and indulgent gelato style ice cream.
