LEWIS OF LONDON ICE CREAM FARM
Fold farm has been home to our family for three generations.
Our grandfather was originally from a small rural village in Wales but made the brave decision to move to London and eventually started farming the 100 hectares here in 1968. Throughout the years to follow our Grandfather grew his dairy herd and focused on producing milk and delivering it to the local community in his milk van and was eventually joined by our father in the running of the farm.
However in more recent years as milk prices began to fall we had to look at how we could diversify. We have always had a sweet tooth for a great creamy ice cream so in 2014 we decided that we should build on our passion and start making our own ice cream. Now in the hands of my two brothers and I it remains very much a family business.
Made in small batches here on the farm, we use all-natural ingredients, sourced from British producers wherever possible. With zero milk miles in the production of our ice cream it quite literally comes straight from the farm to our customers which are something that we are really passionate about.
Initially we just began supplying our ice cream to wholesale customers such as pubs, cafes, restaurants and museums. However, our love of ice cream meant that we always had a desire to open up our own ice cream farm where we could share it with our customers directly.
So in 2016 myself and my wife Fiona decided to make the leap and open our own ice cream farm here at Fold Farm. Our visitors can enjoy sampling all our amazing flavours of ice cream whilst also relaxing in our idyllic surroundings. Meanwhile the kids are kept happy as they get to let off some steam in our play area.
Since then our ice cream farm has grown in many ways from the number of people we have coming through the gate to the number of ice cream flavours we have on offer to the variety of events we now have on throughout the year.
We are now extremely excited to share our new and shiny shop which will now offer over 25 flavours of ice cream as well as dessert, sundaes, milkshakes and much more. And we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
Remember, you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream!
