Dani slatter set up her own ice cream business using the organic milk from her dairy

A Cotswolds farmer's wife has put her husband's dairy herd to good use and set up her own ice cream business.

Dani Slatter had been keen to set up her own business and decided to use the organic produce right on her doorstep. "It makes sense to use the milk from the farm," she said. "We will be initially launching with three varieties, but developing seasonal flavours and can fulfil bespoke ice cream flavour requests for celebrations and events."

The Cotswold Ice Cream Company, based at Farmington, launched in May since when Dani has been flat out making and delivering to local delicatessens, hotels and clubs to meet demand, as well as selling directly from Hill House Farm.

The Cotswold Ice Cream Company is the only Ice Cream manufacturer in the UK producing exclusively fair-trade ice cream. Dani spent months researching the market, becoming qualified in food production and sourcing her fair trade products. She will be using the finest Vanilla in the world (according to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Delia Smith) imported especially for her from Uganda. She will also be using dark Fairtrade chocolate and cocoa to achieve a chocolate ice cream that is hard to put down.
