St Joan’s is a family-run farm situated in the lovely countryside of Leigh, Surrey. St Joan’s oh-so-fresh dairy ice cream (their motto is “from cow to freezer in under an hour”) is available at good food shops and restaurants throughout Surrey and beyond, and can be bought directly from the farm (please ring ahead).
They are available in more flavours than you can shake a cow’s tail at, and all are truly scrumptious.

What is great about your business?
We are a long-established family farm, and farming is very much a family affair. Everyone has a role, from looking after the cows and calves to making the ice cream, marketing it and meeting our lovely customers at country shows and food festivals throughout Surrey and the surrounding areas. We take great care to create delicious, artisan dairy ice creams, using the freshest milk. With our own herd of 15 milking British Frisian, Dairy Shorthorn and Guernsey cows, which produce milk all year round, we are never short of milk! St Joan’s Farm consists of 150 acres that is farmed under low-intensity methods; free of growth promoters, artificial hormones and stimulants. This way is natural for the cows, better for the environment and healthier for humans.
How do you contribute to the local Surrey food scene?
We bring the Surrey’s food lovers truly local dairy ice cream that they can enjoy knowing that it has been made right here on their doorstep. We also put smiles on people’s faces by coming up with seasonal favourites such as Christmas Pudding Ice Cream, which always goes down a treat. It makes a refreshing change from traditional Christmas pudding.
We believe our dairy ice cream is truly fabulous because of what we are told by our customers. This is not because of what we put into it; rather what we don't put into it.. namely: vegetable oil, artificial flavours and sweeteners. Remember it's called "dairy ice cream" for a reason – not all ice cream can be called that.
