All about ice cream workshop

All About Ice Cream

Our 2020 season has now ended, but events will return to Cream o' Galloway in early 2021. Follow us on facebook for all the latest news and updates.

This event lasts approximately 2 hours.

In this two hour event you’ll experience every aspect of the ice cream journey – a tour of the farm to see where the cows are milked, tasting four of our most popular ice cream flavours and creating your very own ice cream from scratch in a hands-on workshop. 

You’ll start with our easy ice cream recipe which uses use pasteurised milk from our organic cow with calf dairy farm, sugar and cream.  You’ll then select flavours from a variety of delicious ingredients. Adult-only parties can include alcohol in their ice cream.

Our ice cream recipe is suitable for domestic ice cream makers, so if you have access to one you can put your new ice cream making skills to use when you get home.

As your chosen base flavour churns and starts the freezing process you will take part in an ice cream tasting where you’ll try four of our most popular flavours and hear why we make and flavour ice cream in the way we do. You’ll then have the opportunity, if you wish, to fold in any other ingredients to complete your creation.

While your creation freezes, we’ll head down to the farm on a walking farm tour. At certain times of the year you’ll be able to see our milking herd in the parlour for afternoon milking. We’ll then head back to the Visitor Centre where you will collect your ice cream.

Covid Safety Measures: Your group will be allocated a 2m x 2m workstation that is at least 2m from other stations.  There will be a maximum of 15 participants in the barn that would normally hold up to 150 people. All equipment is sanitised prior to the start of the session and great attention is paid to hygiene and safety throughout.
