Our farm was featured on the hit family programme “Eat Well For Less” on BBC One last night. While Mackie’s ice cream is made with fresh milk and cream from the farm, Chris Bavin from “Eat Well for Less?” discovered that some products substitute these fresh dairy ingredients, with vegetable oil – meaning that many top ice cream brands don’t actually contain any cream.
Kirstin (Mackie, our Development Director) was delighted to take the opportunity to show how we make ice-cream here on the farm, using ingredients fresh from the cows. We want to encourage people to take the time and taste the difference between real dairy and oil based ice creams. Have you tried it? See what happened when Chris tried the taste test on the show
