Established in the early 1990s, Cream O' Galloway has been producing fair trade ice-cream for over a decade. Using only the finest organically grown ingredients, they are serious about their commitment to reduce their impact on the environment and trade ethically. Recent developments make them unique in keeping calves with their mothers for a whole year (an unheard of practice) and they are moving towards milking once a day rather than twice, which takes a huge strain off the cows and lengthens their lives significantly. They are also investing hugely in an experimental sustainable energy and waste system. The kids probably don't come for that, however: keep them entertained on a day out at the visitor centre where they can spot wildlife and let off steam in the adventure playground, on zip wires and slides, pedal carts and indoor play areas. Afterwards, enjoy a treat in the tearoom or ice-cream parlour where there are 30 different flavours to choose from before buying more to take home from the shop. The farm has also now rekindled a cheese-making tradition, with various style of their own farmhouse cheeses available in the café and shop.
