A gorgeous range of ice creams made by Bernie and John Burke using the cream-laden milk from their herd of Jersey cows near Tara

Burkes Farm Ice Cream

Is there any cow more beautiful than a Jersey? And could there be any creamier or more delicious milk for making that ultimate treat, full cream dairy ice cream.


Well Guernsey dairy farmers might have something to say about that but, since 2006, Bernie and John Burke have been proving the point with the gorgeous range of ice creams they make with the cream-laden milk from their herd of Jersey cows.


Like other artisan ice cream producers, Bernie Burke makes it in a lot of flavours, including classics like vanilla and chocolate but also unusual ones such as clotted cream & strawberry, and the very popular apple crumble. Many of them are seasonal and at Christmas you may find novelty flavours, such as plum pudding ice cream.


There’s also a sorbet range including that refreshing essence of early summer, elderflower, as well as more usual ones such as raspberry and lemon.


The Burkes Farm range is very popular and it’s sold on the farm and at local markets and shops such as SuperValu, and you’ll see it on menus in the area too - but it’s also quite widely available, with distribution in the greater Dublin area. You’ll spot their brightly coloured packaging in Avoca and other speciality stores, and in Galway (through Sheridans).


Burkes Farm Ice Cream is a founder member of the Meath Food Trail and visitors are welcome.

Available from: The farm and local markets; selected retailers in Greater Dublin area (see website for list). abbreviations
