Farm Life

Milk bottle

At Manor Farm we produce about 1.5 to 2m. Litres of high quality milk per year from 250 plus pedigree jersey cows. this milk and cream is used for the production of our Cow Shack Ice Cream and also sold in the milk vending machine next door, but the majority of this milk is sold to Longley Farm Dairy nearby at Holmfirth for the production of their superb dairy products.

Through the winter months the cows live indoors and eat a diet weighed mixed and produced on the farm from food conserved from the summertime, when grass starts to grow in the spring the cows go out to graze, all the organic manure from the cattle is recycled back on the land so to regenerate and fertilize the next crops and keep the soil alive and healthy, because organic rich soil collects and hold far more carbon.

The herd are all pedigree Jerseys and live a long and happy life under the care of our Herd Manager Ruby Felton. She looks after the health, well fair, breeding and day to day management of all the cows and young stock.

The cows are milked Twice a day every day of the year at 5am and 3pm and all the replacement stock are reared in house to prevent bringing in infections. Our mission is to give all the livestock under our control a happy long and pleasant lifeso to produce the best possible milk product for all our customers to enjoy.

Fantastic little village (... If it is a village?!) With a tremendous pub and ice cream parlour.Would budget on the expensive side but it's a treat never the less.Surrounded by great scenery.Car park is located in a field with an entrance wide enough for one car in/ out. Be very cautious. Short walk to the ice cream parlour.Great menu, loads to choose from. Portions (scoops) are huge. Prices start from £3. Kids loved it... and I enjoyed a relaxing beer whilst they scoffed their faces!

The ice cream was very tasty with a wider range of flavours to choose from. Having the option of a fudge stick or a flake was also a really nice option. The only thing is that the quantity was a little on the small side, but overall it was very good

I was so happy when they made this ice cream place, right where it is my forever favourite place. There are so many different flavours to choose from and so so delicious 😋 I never thought I'll buy a bucket of ice cream but is never enough when it's soooo delicious. 😍

My favourite place..come rain or shine. Delicious jersey ice cream, butter and milk. Such lovely staff. Amazing choices of flavours. Butter is delicious. Seating down my river is lovely. Car parking is in the field only 5 minute walk if that.
