PRLog - Apr. 21, 2013 - DROITWICH SPA, U.K. -- Exactly one hundred years ago, Churchfields Farm in Salwarpe was bought by Thomas Davies, as part of the High Park and Salwarpe Court Estate auction held in Worcester on April 16th 1913.

The farm is still owned and run by the fourth and fifth generation of the Davies family – Michael and his daughter Gillian.

They are still milking cows, but in recent years they have also diversified into the production of luxury farmhouse ice cream.

“We are really excited to be celebrating our centenary year” said Gillian, founder of Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream.

“I think my Great Grandfather, who bought the farm for £1460 in 1913, would be proud to see how we are doing today.

“It hasn’t always been easy, particularly in recent years, but I believe that hard work and a willingness to change, will keep Churchfields alive for another hundred years!”

Churchfields Farm are planning a series of celebrations during 2013 to mark their centenary year, including the launch of a new 500ml ice cream tub, and new ice cream flavours.

Back in 1913 the farm was 45 acres and was home to a herd of 15 dairy shorthorns. All the milk was delivered by horse and trap to the local town of Droitwich.

Churchfields Farm has now grown to nearly 400 acres and increased the herd to 130 Holstein Friesians. With a constant supply of fresh milk and a need to diversify the family established Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream in 2004.

Now well known for their ice cream and unique ‘cow to cornet’ success story, the brand Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream continues to gain market presence.

Churchfields are keen to support local growers and other food producers and     strongly committed to the concept of economic sustainability.
