Brief History Of Youngs Dairy
The history of Young's Jersey Dairy Farm begins way back in 1869. It was back at this time when the red barn was built.

Food And Drink At Youngs Dairy
Youngs Jersey Dairy Farm has specialist Ice Cream and Cheese!
Youngs Dairy Ice Cream
Delicious Ice Cream made fresh on the Farm using the Farm's own ingredients. The Ice Cream that is made here is really smooth and is made similarly to Cornish Ice Cream that can be found in the United Kingdom. The Ice Cream that is made here is made slowly and as it is made more slowly, it tastes a lot richer.
It should also be noted that the flavors of Ice Cream that are sold on the farm change on a regular basis. So for example, in one week it might be a Strawberry flavor and the next week it might be Pecan.
Youngs Dairy Cheese
Cheese is also a big staple of the farm. The farm doesn't just produce one flavor of cheese. Some of the flavors of cheese that are produced include the likes of Cheddar, Italian, Garlic, Dill, and Basil Cheddar. The cheese can also be hand-breaded and this can be served in restaurants.
