Needwood Ice Cream

Made on the Thompstone family farm in the National Forest, Anslow. We produce traditional wholesome dairy ice cream in small hand finished batches.

Coronavirus Update

Despite the further restrictions you can still enjoy Needwood Ice Cream. Violet the vending machine is open 24/7 as always and the farm shops are doing a fantastic job of keeping everyone supplied. Take care and very best wishes.
