Cream o' Galloway

A delicious day out in the beautiful Galloway countryside with a whole host of foodie experiences, activities and delicious produce to enjoy

Cream o' Galloway is well known for its award winning luxury dairy ice cream, made with rich, creamy milk from their own herd, reputed to be some of the happiest cows in the country! Farmhouse cheeses are a more recent addition to the foods produced at this inspirational farm and visitor centre, and daily behind the scenes tours give you a fascinating insight into farm based artisan food production.

The menu is full of food produced on-site, including burgers made from their own beef, a range of cheeses, home baking and around 30 flavours of delicious ice creams. These are complemented by locally made preserves, local wild venison, local real ales and locally produced chocolate treats.

As well as the foodie treats, there are miles of nature trails to explore, a spectacular woodland adventure playground, pedal karting, an innovative arial bounce adventure called Go Boing and indoor play zones for children.
