Sunshine, splashing and London’s Ice Cream Farm

10th April 2017
Lewis of London Ice-Cream Farm

 

I feel like we’ve well and truly started summer over the last few days! Picnics, building sandcastles, BBQs, paddling pool, suncream, sunhats and sandals on! Which all feels a bit strange given we haven’t even had Easter yet.

Yesterday, we popped to the Ice Cream Farm in nearby Barnet for an ice cream (not surprisingly). As well as coffee, play and an Easter hunt.

The Ice Cream Farm is a little offshoot of the 300 acre Fold Farm run by the Lewis brothers. The farm has been in their family for 3 generations. They sell ice cream under the Lewis of London brand with milk from their dairy herd.

You can buy delicious ice cream to eat at tables outside, drinks and ice cream and some other bits to take home. There’s a sandpit play area, vintage tractor to clamber on, hay bales to climb. Some small animals are there too (guinea pigs, chickens and rabbits) as well as Wafer, the calf. At the moment they are doing an Easter Egg Hunt for a Β£1, this was fun and the girls loved their Kinder egg prize.

The ice-cream is absolutely delicious and it was lovely to sit in the sun with a coffee whilst the girls played. There was enough to keep them amused for an hour or so before we headed home to get the paddling pool out!

    Spring really has hit this week hasn’t it, it’s been so easy to get my lot out enjoying the fresh air this week it’s refreshing. Those ice creams look so tasty and the perfect treat for such a sunny spring day, I bet the girls are desperate to go back for another cone soon! I can see why you headed over to this fab place for the afternoon, plenty to keep the girls entertained with yummy ice cream, play areas and Easter Egg Hunts

    This looks like such a lovely day out – I had no idea Barnet had a farm let alone an Ice Cream farm!! I have obviously been missing out. The Easter Egg hunt looks fab, and great value for just Β£1! x

      I think it’s pretty new! And not as big as some of the other ones, I think it’s got potential though!

    I like the sound of the Ice Cream Farm – can’t beat a nice ice-cream on a warm sunny day. Those hay bales look like they’re fun to climb on too and sounds like the girls enjoyed the Easter egg hunt πŸ™‚ #countrykids

    It’s lovely to read that the farm ran through the generations and they made their own ice cream. #CountryKids
