Here at The Milking Parlour we make all of our artisan ice cream using fresh milk from our family farm in Burrow, less than three miles from our parlour in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Our family have been farming at Mill Farm for over sixty years with three generations of Crackles' now farming together.
Twice a day, three hundred and sixty five days a year, David, Mike and Richard Crackles can be found in 'The Milking Parlour' at Mill Farm tending to the herd of 150 Holstein Friesian cows - the phrase 'Cow to Cone' couldn't be truer - as quickly as each morning's milk is cooled, we're using it to produce all the delicious ice cream Kirkby Lonsdale needs.
We're passionate about using seasonal produce and hope you enjoy the ever changing flavours we have on offer.

We make all of our Artisan Ice Cream here at our parlour to a traditional Italian Gelato recipe, giving you an authentic taste of Italy in beautiful Kirkby Lonsdale. Whilst we can't promise the Italian climate, we can promise you'll be spoilt for choice with over twenty delicious flavours to choose from, including dairy and gluten free options. With an ever changing offering there's always something new to try - tasters are encouraged!
Our ice cream milkshakes are deliciously thick and made purely with our artisan ice cream and fresh milk. Simply choose the flavour and we'll add the ice cold milk and whipped cream - the hardest part could be deciding your favourite!
We always have dairy free sorbets available as well as multiple gluten free options, including gluten free warm waffles (available during the cooler months) and gluten free waffle cones. Our gluten free waffle cones are also available to purchase in individual packs.
