A few customers have mentioned that the icecream tastes 'just a little different' at the moment, the pure daisy in particular.
This is because the cows have changed from their winter diet of grass silage and maize to fresh spring grass out in the fields.
This change of diet does have a slight affect on the taste of the milk and the icecream, this being more noticeable in the less flavoured ice creams, especially pure daisy with no added flavour.
The other affect the new lush grass has is to boost daisy's milk yield and with a lot of recently calved cows the result is this....
This is the farm bulk milk tank this morning. Full to overflowing.
We take milk from this tank to make the ice cream each day but still the tank is near to overflowing. Daisy would be very disappointed to know any of her fantastic milk was going to waste !
How can you help ? Well we have to make 'even' more ice cream to keep Daisy and her chums happy so if you could all stop by this week and have a cornet or two Daisy would be very grateful . ;) (and of course so would we ! )
Bye for now Farmer Dave :)
