Callestick Dairy Farm Icecream
At Callestick Farm, they take their own pure, wholesome milk, local cream and the finest fruits and confectionery. Then they add a touch of Callestick magic to create flavour upon flavour of dreamy, ice creamy indulgence. The farm is located in the heart of Cornwall, only minutes from the North coast where the air is clean and the grass is green. Their cows roam the pastures during the summer months and shelter inside when the weather is gloomy. The farm has been run by the Parker family for many generations and they have been making their award-winning ice cream for 20 years. Their ice cream is completely natural; none of the rich dairy goodness is removed and nothing artificial is added. (Stand E10),
David and Tracy, along with a team of specially-trained fudge makers, make their Buttermilk fudge by hand, using traditional recipes and old-fashioned open copper pans.

They make fudge to be sold all over the UK, as well as from their shops in Cornwall, which stock every conceivable flavour of fudge from clotted cream right through to lemon meringue. (Stand A23).

There are no added colourings or preservatives in their Fruit Liqueurs, Gins or Brandy.
