Ice cream made of buffalo milk? I was certainly intrigued to find out more after West Dorset Foodie had been lucky to try some this summer. So I crossed over to Somerset to visit West Country Water Buffalo farm to learn more about their recently launched Buffalicious range of ice creams.
Shopping online for locally produced food, sounds great doesn’t it? That’s what the Food Assemblies are all about and last week Shaftesbury Food Assembly was launched. I attended the launch night at the Half Moon pub in Shaftesbury and met ladies behind the Shaftesbury Food Assembly, Maggie & Fiona, along with the producers who sell via the Food Assembly.
In a village of Charlton Horethorne is a lovely pub called Kings Arms. It’s near enough to Sherborne and not too far from the A303 if you are travelling and fancy a pub lunch or dinner (they do have rooms too!) in the Dorset – Somerset borders.

Located in the North Dorset countryside is a hidden gem of apple orchards, home to Copse House Cider. I first visited the farm in late April and returned there again this week to meet Bob Chaplin, founder of Copse House Cider. I was taken for a tour around the apple orchards on a beautiful sunny day.
