On the family farm near Knockanore village in beautiful West Waterford, Thomas Baldwin uses the milk and cream from their Holstein/British Friesian cross cows to produce superb dairy ice cream
Baldwins Farmhouse Ice Cream
Inspired by a farms tour in Holland some years ago, innovative young dairy farmer Thomas Baldwin established an alternative enterprise on the family farm near Knockanore village in beautiful West Waterford,
Together with his parents John and Maria, he uses the milk and cream from their herd of 70 Holstein/British Friesian cross cows to produce a very high quality ice cream range on the farm.
Unlike many modern ice creams, it is made on a traditional crème anglaise base and in small batches, and uses a special pasteurising technique which protects the natural flavours. The retail range includes classic vanilla, strawberry and half a dozen other popular flavours, and a much wider range is available for hotels and restaurants throughout the region, many of whom take pride in showcasing these excellent products.
Look for their ice cream in speciality shops in the Waterford/Cork area, and in local restaurants including Richmond House, Cappoquin, and The Old Convent, at Clogheen, Co Tipperary.
