Located in the heart of Galloway just a stone’s throw from the coast, Cream o’ Galloway is a popular place to visit for soup and snacks, food and farm events, wildlife spotting and, of course, lots and lots of ice cream, ice cream sundaes and ice cream milkshakes!!! New for 2021 are some great fun, hands-on activities. You can design and make your very own flavour of ice cream, learn the art of cheese making or take part in a farm tour and see the cows with their calves.
The home of luxurious Cream o' Galloway ice cream where you'll find an enormous ice cream scooping counter, plus a cosy cafe serving soup, snacks and refreshments. Events and activities run regularly, please book in advance on the website.
Ice Cream Making Workshops run regularly in a specially designed, socially distanced new workshop area. Suitable for adults and children (aged 5+), you’ll create your very own dream ice cream from scratch, selecting the flavours you most enjoy, or inventing new flavour combinations. Adult groups will be able to incorporate alcohol flavours. Ice Cream Making Workshops costs £25 per workstation, suitable for up to three people working together. Pre-booking strongly recommended.
The all-day Cheese Making Course runs on Thursdays. You’ll learn to make two types of cheese at socially distanced workstations; a soft cheese which can be easily replicated at home and a pressed cheese, which you will then mature at home. Cheese making involves periods of time when you pause and let nature take its course. During these times you’ll go on a quick tour of the farm and you’ll enjoy a cheese tasting experience. The cost of the workshop is £95 per workstation, or £130 for two people sharing a workstation. Pre-booking essential.
The Ethical Dairy Farm Tour is an in-depth farmer-led event designed for adults. Unlike almost every other dairy farm in the world, we have stopped taking calves away from their mothers shortly after birth. You'll have the opportunity to meet the cows and their calves and hear an explanation of their net zero farming system. You'll hear an explanation of what regenerative farming means, and discuss the environmental impacts of different farming approaches. This event costs £15 per person and pre-booking is essential.
Cream o' Galloway ice cream is made with organic milk from their award winning cow with calf dairy farm, and for an ice cream treat there is simply nowhere better! Choose from more than 20 flavours of ice creams and sorbets, or leave it to the ice cream experts to create a spectacular sundae just for you from the tempting sundae menu! Dairy-free sorbet is also available. Alternatively you can pop in for a takehome tub to enjoy at home.
Fancy something more relaxed? There are nature trails to explore, a dog walk, regular farm tours, a café and crazy golf too.
Please note: the adventure playground at Cream o’ Galloway is now closed.
