Mini Explorers Adopt Brymore’s Guernsey Calves

Our Mini Explorers have been very excited to welcome some rather adorable new youngsters to the farm recently, in the shape of two Guernsey calves from Yorkshire’s own Brymore Ice Cream herd. Our children have loved feeding the calves and helping them settle into their new home, and have been excited to learn all about milk production and the hard work that goes into ice cream making!
