We wish you a year filled with happiness, success, health and lots of ice cream. Hope you are still sticking to the new year resolutions! This year we are looking forward to making chocolate on the farm, to hearing if you like our two new indulgent ice cream flavours and to our “year of the cow” – celebrating our lovely cows who provide us with Mackie’s crucial ingredients - fresh milk and cream.
We hope that you all have a lovely Christmas - our ice cream team are now on holiday and the ice cream dairy has closed for a Christmas break. But don't worry we have made lots of stock for you! For example, on their last day this team managed to make over 50,000 litres of Traditional, Raspberry Ripple and Organic flavours. In total we made about 9 million litres of Mackie's ice cream this year. Check out our advert calendar on our facebook page
