Good food Ireland

Ireland - Thomas spotted an advert for ice cream making equipment from a Dutch company in the newspaper. As he was on his way to Holland on a scholarship for winning the Young Farmer of the Year award, he decided to make the company a port of call. He saw the equipment and the production, and returned to Waterford full of enthusiasm. Here Baldwin's Ice Cream was born.

Since 2006, Thomas has produced ice creams on site from the milk of his herd. He takes full part in farming, production, distribution and recipe development. Flavours include his own favourite Vanilla Madagascar, made with Madagascan vanilla pods, boozy Bailey's, Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Honeycomb and Caramel Fudge. The best quality ingredients are sought out for flavouring, and local soft fruits which he uses for the strawberry ice cream and five different fruit sorbets. Chefs love Baldwin's Ice Cream, and often ask him to make specific flavours, which he can do because production happens in small batches.

You will find these lovely ice creams in restaurants and as scooped ice cream in cafes, and in 500mls tubs in retail outlets in the Cork and Waterford area. Larger quantities available for the catering industry.
