Meet the family ...

Fresh milk from our own cows, the "Inspiration" herd, of Holstein Fresians form the basis of our delicious, hand made Devon ice cream.

Ice Creams & Sorbets

Ice creams hand made in our dairy with milk from our own herd - what could be more natural?

Furzeleigh Down dairy is part of a fourth generation dairy farm called Furzeleigh Down.

It is situated in East Devon, between Axminster and Lyme Regis. It overlooks Axminster and has a magnificent panoramic view stretching to the far distance from the North to the North West.  Visit our Farm Shop and Cafe in Cooks Lane to sample some of our delicious ice cream made with our own cows milk and cream, lovingly made by hand in a new dairy which is part of our farmhouse.
