Just when we thought the dream drive-thru didn’t exist.
Cheshire-based The Ice Cream Farm is here to kick off summer with a bang, with the ultimate drive-thru service we never knew we even needed. Serving up their award-winning ice cream, which is made on-site at the farm, The Ice Cream Farm allows fans to enjoy 30 of their tasty flavours by ordering in the safety of their own cars.
Flavours include the classics such as mint chocolate chip and raspberry ripple, with more experimental flavours also up for grabs as part of the drive-thru offering, including Creme Egg, Jammie Dodger and even a Malteser-inspired flavour. The farm’s latest service launched just last weekend, and it’s already proven incredibly popular with the locals.
Open every day of the week, customers can choose from ice creams in both tubs or by the scoop, with additional items such as milkshakes and cold drinks available to order, too.
Speaking of the decision to develop the concept last summer during the pandemic, Director of The Ice Cream Farm Jonathan Fell said: “We have seen other attractions and restaurants offering a ‘click and collect’ type offer but we wanted to explore how we could offer something a little bit different whilst still adhering to the guidelines.
“After a lot of Zoom calls, we have managed to design something that provides our visitors with almost the full range of our ice cream whilst maintaining strict health and safety practices for both our team and customers.
“A ‘Drive-Thru’ concept is something that I have always thought would be a welcome addition to the attraction.”
Fell also continued that the new concept could become a permanent service for the popular Cheshire spot, saying: “We know that it can be a little off-putting for the ‘ice cream only’ customer to visit us during peak season due to the popularity. A ‘Drive-Thru’ concept may be the solution as it will assist us in satisfying the ice cream enthusiast, as well as the families who want to come for the full ‘play’ experience.”
And it looks like that’s the case, with the popular parlour continuing to serve drive-through ice creams this spring.
Guests can currently visit for drive-thru ice cream every day between 12-4pm, and more information (including for those with dietary requirements) can be found on their website.
