Droitwich ice cream firm scoops two awards

DROITWICH’S Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream has scooped two prestigious awards at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel last week.

The Salwarpe-based firm won the dairy category with its Worcestershire Plum ice-cream which uses locally sourced plums.

It then walked away with the overall Taste Award which was open to all the winners of each category.

Fiona Roberts, from Churchfields, said to win the dairy category was exciting enough, but to win the overall Taste Award was completely unexpected, given the quality of products the company was up against.

Her sister and business owner, Gillian Kerton, added “We have an exceptionally hard-working group of people at the farm, and it is thanks to them that we have won this award – whether they have been milking the cows, producing the ice cream or selling the final product.”

Churchfields, a family-run business, celebrated 100 years of farming in 2013.

It began producing ice-cream nine years ago when the aftermath of foot and mouth disease saw plummeting milk prices and the business needed another avenue for income.

Since then it has gone from strength-to-strength, with the company’s ice cream being sold in pubs and restaurants throughout the region.
