From cow to cone to cool customers at the Grand Pier


Something very cool is happening at the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare after it named a West Country firm as its new sole supplier of scoop ice cream.

Marshfield Farm Ice Cream is bringing its distinctive brand of tasty treats to the seafront attraction, including some of its very latest – and quirkiest – flavours.

Based at a family-run farm near Bath, Marshfield Farm celebrated 30 years of ice cream making in 2018.

Marshfield will be supplying nine flavours of ice cream and two flavours of sorbet to Pier visitors.

Flavours on offer range from traditional favourites to Marshfield’s very latest creation, Birthday Cake flavour ice cream, which features sponge pieces, a strawberry shimmer ripple and handfuls of star-shaped sugar strands.

Marshfield Farm is proud of its ‘cow to cone’ production process, which means that you can enjoy a scoop of their ice cream within 24 hours of one of their own cows being milked, providing fresh organic milk for the ice cream all on the same site.

There are 250 cows on the 1,100-acre farm, the owners of which aim to be as sustainable and self-sufficient as possible.

Liz Kallias, Food and Beverage Manager, at the Grand Pier, said:

“As a company, Marshfield’s Farm is very green and carbon neutral, which is important to us.

“They use organic milk, only use sustainable palm oil, and produce all the milk that they use for their ice cream on-site at the farm. All their packaging is recyclable, too.

“Using them as our sole supplier for scoop ice cream means we significantly reduce our food miles, which is good for environment.

“And, of course, on top of all that, they produce some absolutely incredible ice cream, so it’s really nice to be working with them.”

Will Hawking, owner of Marshfield Farm Ice Cream, said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to solidify our relationship with the Grand Pier. It’s a site our family have always enjoyed visiting and supplying over the years and we’re looking forward to visiting again very soon to grab a cone with a view!”
