we simply love ice cream
Spring bunny weekend postponed until 10th & 11th March
We simply love ice cream.
On the edge of Derby, our cows graze the fields at our Bluebell Dairy Farm. It’s the blend
of their creamy milk and the finest ingredients that produce our wide range of freshly made, award-winning ice cream.
Visit our farm and enjoy our Tea Rooms, Play Areas and of course, our ice cream.
In order to improve our facilities for our customers from 22nd May 2017, we will be implementing a small, affordable entry fee into the Bluebells Farm areas of £3 per person – Under 2’s free. This entry fee will enable us to continue to grow our farm and facilities so that we can continue to provide such an enjoyable place for families to visit. Why not try out our brand new Jumping Pillow, race the family on our Go Kart Track or let your little ones enjoy our Toddler tractor track? We also have a new Bluebells Farm Timetable – running hourly between 10am and 4pm!
So, come and enjoy your Half Term fun with us at Bluebell Dairy!
On The Farm
Bluebell Dairy received their 2016 Champion in Tourism Enterprise Award at the Countryside Alliance Awards held at Westminster.
Nicknamed the Rural Oscars, the honors were handed out by the Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom MP at a Parliamentary reception. Businesses from across England and Wales, who had already won their regional title, including Bluebell Dairy, attended Westminster to find out if they had taken the national title.
Oliver Brown, of Bluebell Dairy travelled to London with his wife, Ella, and their six-month old son to attend the ceremony, held at the Houses of Parliament.
Tim Bonner, Chief Executive of the Countryside Alliance, said: “The Browns have achieved what they set out to do – they are still milking their cows, and their modernising plans will ensure the business is sustainable for the years ahead.”
He added: “Around 1,500 schoolchildren visited in 2016, including many inner-city children who met farm animals for the first time in their lives. In all over 125,000 visited Bluebell Dairy in 2016, a phenomenal figure.”
The Awards are the Countryside Alliance’s annual celebration of rural produce, skills, enterprise and heritage through small hard-working businesses. They are now in their twelfth year and have become the definitive rural business award to win. In 2016 they received over 7,500 public nominations, which were whittled down and judged.
