With the recent announcement that Carbis Bay in Cornwall will be hosting the G7 Summit in June 2021, we thought we would bring you some interesting bits of information connecting it to the 10 nations attending.
Cornwall is lucky enough to be home to at least 58 different species of mammal ranging from the tiny pygmy shrew weighing in at 5g, to the fin whale which can tip the scales at 80 tonnes. Cornwall is unusual in that many of our native mammals are found around the coasts where whales, dolphins and seals feed in the rich, shallow waters.
Narrow streets and steep valley sides lead you down to the centre of the old Mevagissey, where the distinctive twin harbour provides a safe haven for the fishing boats that land their daily catch of skate, lobster, plaice and sole. Mevagissey was built on fish, in the 1800s and early 1900s it prospered on the back of the abundant source of pilchards (sardines) caught in local waters.
Nestled in a beautiful valley, just moments away from the dramatic North Cornish coastline sits Callestick Farm lovingly farmed by us, the Parker family since 1953. It’s where we have created champion Cornish ice cream for generations to our original family recipe.
