Located in Truro, Cornwall, Callestick Farm has, for over 20 years, been a pioneer in making artisan ice creams using only its own pure, wholesome milk, local cream and the finest fruits and confectionery.

Moreover, all of the ice cream is completely natural; none of the rich dairy goodness is removed and nothing artificial is added.

Focused on the foodservice industry, although supplying delicatessens, farm shops and other independents throughout the UK, Callestick Farm currently produces around 30 flavours of ice cream (plus eight refreshing sorbets), all packed with the tastiest top quality ingredients.

The company is constantly creating exciting new flavours too; many of them bespoke for major clients. It provided a range of unique flavours (pre-scooped) for Ascot Racecourse, for instance, whilst currently it is developing new flavours to coincide with the 2012 Olympics, including Black Butter and Orange & Coconut Sorbet. All sorbets at Callestick are made using their sparkling fresh spring water and naturally, fine whole fruits.

This is ‘real’ Cornish ice cream, with Callestick Farm being located in the heart of Cornwall, only minutes from the north coast where the air is clean and the grass is green. Its small herd of Friesians roam the pastures during the summer months and shelter inside when the weather is gloomy.

The farm has been run by the Parker family for many generations, and has been making its award-winning ice cream since the beginning of the 1990s. This is not a company that sits back and rests on its laurels though, having one eye constantly on the future; it is currently in the process of expanding its production facility which, in response to ever-growing demand, will more than double capacity. This investment of around £200,000 in the midst of what seems like a never-ending recession underlines Callestick Farm’s belief and commitment in both its product portfolio and the people who produce it.

It’s a company that is also very much tuned in to the environment, not only the running of the farm itself, but in the acquisition of important aspects of the business such as packaging. In 2011, for example, Callestick Farm replaced its plastic litre tub with a new cardboard option.

Okay, this is something of a halfway house, as when packaging ice cream cardboard still needs to be treated with a plastic coating, but it’s certainly the direction that the company wishes to take. Indeed, it has been consistently ‘nagging’ tub manufacturers to create something that is fully bio-degradable – nothing yet, but it will keep pressing them!

The quality of the ice cream is one thing that never changes, although you will see a lot of ‘movement’ when it comes to flavours, with the company constantly developing fresh concepts and ideas; two of the most recently launched being Lemon Curd and Apple Pie, both available in the new 500ml and foodservice tubs 4ltr and the napoli 5ltr for front of house scooping.

Callestick Farm’s reputation for excellence is based upon a genuine commitment to supply the very finest in fresh, tasty ice creams and sorbets right across the range.
