We are proud to be working with amazing local Sussex suppliers and we are excited to now be stocking Latchetts Farm ice cream in our onsite vineyard shop. We caught up with them just in time for #NationalIceCreamMonth to find out the story behind cow to cone.
Tell us about Latchetts Farm
Latchetts is a family run business nestled inside Heaven Farms grounds. They are retailers of the finest gelato, handmade chocolates and freshly pasteurised milk.
How did you start Latchetts Farm Ice Cream? And why?
Latchetts Farm was set up in 2019 by Grant Butler with a simple phrase cow to cone! Grant is a fourth generation of dairy farmers and following on the family tradition of farming with cows grazing on grass to produce quality milk. Grant saw a new way of using milk supplied by his herd of cows; GELATO.
We believe that our ice cream is so incredible because the "girls" are so happy. Out on fresh grass for over 200 days a year like they should be, producing milk in their carefree way.
What’s your favourite thing about what you do?
We love getting creative with the selection of flavours we offer, and watching our products transform from ideas into ice-cream cones for our customers to enjoy.
There are over a hundred flavours that Grant and the team have come up with and there isn't much we won’t try at Latchetts.
Why do you like working with Bolney?
We love working with local Sussex businesses like ourselves who value good quality produce. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and people enjoying our Gelato is why we do what we do.
Bolney offer a great selection of produce and we’re so pleased to accompany so many other amazing local brands. We are pleased to be working with Bolney in the knowledge that their customers can enjoy a pot nestled amongst their beautiful vines.
Can you give us a quote on why you enjoy supporting local Sussex Businesses?
