A lucky customer is in ice cream heaven after being picked to create her very own flavour thanks to The Cowhouse Dairy.

Hannah Sterling, from Tamworth, saw off competition from more than 1,000 other people across Derbyshire to win a competition to come up with a brand new recipe for locally sourced dairy ice cream called ‘Udder Stuff’.

Her winning flavour was rhubarb and custard and she stopped off at The Cowhouse Dairy, in Belper, to see her creation come to life and to try it for the first time.

Hannah also won a hamper of products, £25 worth of co-operative gift vouchers and three litres of her very own ice cream.

The new flavour will join a varied choice of ice cream to suit all taste buds, from delicious mandarin & ginger to the classic vanilla, available in selected Central England Co-operative.

Malcolm Sutton, Owner of The Cowhouse Dairy, said:We are very happy that Hannah and her rhubarb and custard suggestion won the competition and that the flavour is now part of the Udder Stuff family.

“As a local farmer and producer I am proud to offer free range dairy ice cream from cows that enjoy the freedom to graze on our 600 acre farm.

“Our ice creams are made in small batches by dedicated staff, have no additives and are made with all natural ingredients: whole milk, cream, eggs, sugar and natural flavourings. An additional attribute of the ice cream is it is also naturally high in Omega 3.

“Remember to look out for the cow logo in the freezer and why not nip into one of the Central England Co-operative stores in Derbyshire and try our latest creation?”

The Cowhouse Dairy is run by the Sutton Family who have lived on the Chatsworth Estate, in Derbyshire, for over 100 years. Udder Stuff ice cream is made from milk and cream from the Sutton’s own herd of award winning Holstein-Friesian cows that graze on the rolling green pastures of the Chatsworth Estate at Shottle, near Belper.

The link-up with Cowhouse Dairy reinforces Central England Co-operative’s aim of supporting local producers and communities by offering a wide range of great quality foods.
