Rokko Mountain Farm

A couple of weeks ago, we went up to Rokko Mountain Farm,which is about a 40 minute drive up into the mountains (obviously).

I wasn’t too keen to be honest, having seen many farms in England, and mud and smelly cows aren’t that exciting at the best of times, however this was a little different. It was more like an “educational” farm, so you could touch the animals, feed them and even mingle with the sheep who were allowed to roam free and wild.

We wandered around a bit (after having steak for lunch 🙂 ) and then started the real fun! Making butter and ice cream!

Making Butter


Ten minutes of shaking fresh cream and you almost have butter. A bit of draining, spreading on a tray, mixing with salt and bobs yer uncle.

The ice cream making was also fairly easy, but a bit weird.

Did you know that if you add a lot of salt to ice it drops the temperature to -20degrees C??
I certainly didn’t.
And mixing it up with your hands, certainly does hurt.

It’s just some fresh cream, sugar, some magic dust that came in a bag (dunno what it was), some milk and a lot of ice and salt. Tasted fantastic!
Next time we’re gonna make the chocolate ice cream 🙂

A great day out, and beautiful view from the top of the hill. We were very lucky with the weather as it was supposed to rain that day.
