Yew Tree Farm is set in the rolling Herefordshire countryside on the edge of Garway common. A small number of the cows graze daily on the common throughout the summer, and the remainder of the herd graze the lush pastures adjacent to Trolway Brook.
We use an integrated system of farming in which wheat, barley, peas, oats and grass are grown in rotation across almost the whole of the farm with only a small proportion kept in permanent pasture. With the exception of most of the wheat, which goes for milling, the arable crops are used as part of the animal feed. The straw is used as bedding for the cows during the winter and is spread back on the fields in the Spring.
Our ice creams are made with fresh Guernsey milk and cream taken from our dairy. The unique flavour of the Guernsey milk enables us to produce Kelsmor Gold, a rich and creamy ice cream with no added vanilla. This is lovely on its own or as a compliment to a dessert. Our fruit ice creams are made using the best quality fruit purées or fresh fruit sourced locally when possible.
We have a wide variety of flavours, including a selection of seasonal specials which change according to the season and the availability of local ingredients.
We also have more luxurious flavours such as Blackcurrant with British cassis , and Apricot with Amaretti.
Throughout the year we attend a wide variety of events and functions. We can offer a wide range of flavours served from the display freezers in our victorian style barrow or our distinctive vans. We also have smaller freezers to use in smaller venues.
The barrow can be used at both indoor and outdoor events giving complete flexibility, whether it be a village fete, show, fun day, sporting event, lunch party or wedding.
We are now pasteurising and bottling whole milk which can be purchased from the markets that we attend. It is available in 1 and 2 litre bottles. Guernsey milk is rich in A2 Beta-Casein and was featured in a recent Channel 5 news programme.
We can also make fresh milk shakes when out in our vans. We use our milk and Ice cream to make delicious creamy shakes.
