Yesterday, for our most recent date, my boyfriend and I decided to visit the famous Daisy Made Farm (famous if you live in Lincolnshire at least). All of my friends would go on about how great it is and that the ice cream is to die for, but I had never gotten around to going. Finally, we made the decision last week that our Sunday morning would be spent checking it out and we weren’t disappointed.
The last time I played Crazy Golf was when I visited Orlando, Florida when I was 12 years old (which seems a life time ago now). It’s safe to say that we had a blast and didn’t stop laughing the whole time. Unfortunately, Matt beat me…twice! I’m normally a sore loser but I feel that I took it well and was relatively pleased with the amount of hole-in-ones that I got (I had 3 on our first round and 3 on the second as well). A couple holes were a little difficult as I kept chipping it so it would bounce off of things (I’m not even going to tell you how many shots I took on one hole as it’s too embarrassing).
As it is a farm there are a few animals that you are able to see. The obvious being the dairy cows that are kept in the fields surrounding the farm, but there were also two calves kept separate that were too cute! They kept mooing at us (as you can see from the picture above) and eyeing us up. You could also catch glimpses of rabbits and guinea pigs in their hutches and llamas too! As well as this, there were a few pygmy goats nearby and one in particular would not leave us alone, probably because he was hungry!
And speaking of hunger, we stopped to grab a bite to eat in the cafe on to stop our stomachs from rumbling. I’m a sucker for anything that has bacon and brie, so when I saw a bacon, brie and cranberry panini I snapped it up right away. It went so well with our delicious, fresh milkshakes in tiramisu and chocolate flavours (you can choose any of the ice cream flavours to use so the possibilities are endless).
The trip to Daisy Made would not have been complete without buying a litre of ice cream, which they packet themselves, and out of all the flavours we chose mint choc chip (because you can never go wrong with that). Although, if chocolate had been available I would have chosen that as I am a self-confessed chocoholic.
Have you ever been to a dairy farm and had fresh ice cream? I would love to know and I hope you enjoyed reading about my great day out!
