Auntie Moo’s Golden Guernsey Ice-Cream is having a busy year. Based at the award winning Fairfield Farm in Denbury, Newton Abbot. Devon’s newest farmhouse ice-cream producers are going from strength to strength.
Husband and wife team Chris and Louise Carpenter are life-long farmers and started dairy farming at Fairfield four years ago. The Farm has a 150 strong herd of award winning, pedigree Guernsey cows and around 18 months ago, Chris and Louise had an idea to make their own ice-cream and Auntie Moo’s was born. Chris looks after the herd, the day to day milking and farm management whilst Louise makes the ice-cream and runs the ice-cream side of the business.
So far this year, Fairfield Farm have been nominated and shortlisted by the Devon Farm Business Awards for the CAAV John Neason Diversification Award, whilst Auntie Moo’s Ice-Cream has recently won a silver ‘Taste of the West’ Award for their delicious ‘Creamy Guernsey’ flavour.
Auntie Moo’s has its own ice creamery room attached to the farm which means everything from ‘cow to cone’ or ‘pasture to pot’ is made and created deep in the heart of beautiful South Devon. Louise says when she makes the ice-cream, she is in her element. Their phrase ‘udderly delicious and lovingly made’ couldn’t be more true.
Louise is creative and loves to perfect new winning flavours. Auntie Moo’s have just launched two new flavours; temptingly named ‘Coconut Paradise’ and ‘Café Supreme’. Louise gets lost in the creation of her ice-cream and can sometimes be found working in the ice creamery room in the early hours. These two new additions bring Auntie Moo’s full repertoire of flavours to twenty, including old traditional family favourites and some new and innovative flavours. Best sellers include their Fabulous Ferero and the luscious Irish Cream Cheesecake.
You can find Auntie Moo’s ice cream at many local restaurants, cafes, farm shops and ice-cream outlets. Louise explained “Our customers say they are pleased to have found a premium, locally made ice cream that is a small farmhouse business and which they can also show support to local farmers”.
Louise is modest when asked about Auntie Moo’s success so far and puts it all down to the delicious whole milk and double cream from their award winning Guernsey herd. It is clear, however, that the combination of Louise’s dedication to creating the ice cream and her friendly, personal service makes Auntie’s Moos a winning recipe for success.
