Dairy farm Our Cow Molly, based at Dungworth, near Bradfield, is known for its ice cream made with milk produced on site and is a popular attraction all year round.

At peak times there are often long queues of fans waiting to sample one of their 16 famous flavours.

Now the farm – which launched a vending machine to sell its products safely during lockdown - has also opened up a special table service section so people can ‘skip the queue.’

Launched at the weekend, it means people can now sit at on of their 13 bright pink tables and use the Sheffield City Grab app to order tubs of ice cream direct to their table.

Table service runs between 11am and 4.30pm at weekends, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Eddie Andrew, farm owner, said: “When the sun comes out we get really busy and to keep visiting us the sweet treat it should be we are treating our visitors to table service and no queue, simply arrive sit at a pink table or bench order your ice cream and we will bring it to you.

“We know a visit to us for ice cream is exciting for young children but waiting in a queue not so much, so to save the adults getting their arms pulled and toes stood on by fizzing kids we now offer table service and no queue.”

The farm is also now selling ice cream from a prototype vending machine.
