Over the past few weeks I've been visiting my grandparents in Devon, I visit them at most half terms and during the summer holidays as I love to be in the country. They live in a little village outside Honiton and I don't think I could go anywhere better, it's so isolated and quiet but you're never far away from anything.
As I'd been doing a few little jobs for people around the village, I was recommended to Otter Valley Dairy and they were looking for someone to employ! I was literally over the moon, working with ice cream, could life get any better?
Doesn't it all look amazing? Everyone buys with their eyes nowadays so presentation is key!
If you've never tried Otter Valley Ice Cream and you're going down that way anytime you definitely need to check it out, it is literally the best ice cream I've ever tasted. It is all made up at the farm which is above the summerhouse where they serve the ice cream. During my time I worked in both the dairy and the summerhouse, so I got a real variety of experience and it was such a great job.
How amazing is the summerhouse? It's such a cute little serving place, the views of fields from it are beautiful but unfortunately I didn't get a photo!
The range of flavours is absolutely incredible, they try to make a new special every week, we made Brown Bread, White Chocolate and Raspberry Ripple, Lavender and Honey to name a few of the specials!
My favourite flavours have to be Lemon and Lime Meringue and Salted Caramel with Chocolate Brownie.
Perks of working there include lots of ice cream eating!
I can not wait to go back and work there next summer, it's an incredible place to work and the people are amazing.
