Welcome back to our Best of the West!
Every couple of weeks we highlight exciting news from some great local businesses. This time we’re looking at smoothies, ice cream and a museum!
Marshfield Farm are an organic farm that make and sell ice creams near Bath. Like many family companies they built themselves up from scratch, but now they’re celebrating a successful 30th Birthday!
To celebrate in style they’ve created a new gin and tonic flavour sorbet, just in time for summer. The gin is sourced from local distillery Bramley and Gage and gives an alcoholic kick to the refreshing desert. (Our mouths are watering!)

New museum Being Brunel has opened in Bristol! It even has a giant Brunel head that visitors can climb inside to see the inner workings of his mind.
The attraction ties into the SS Great Britain already on Harbourside and hopes to be an additional boost to the visitor economy in Bristol.
The museum brings together the collection of one of Britain’s greatest engineering minds. He created ships, railways and bridges better than anything seen before and has left a serious legacy, one we can now celebrate in person! (Kind of)

Bristol is home to so many great museums, galleries and attractions and now we’re lucky to have this latest addition just down the road!
Tribal Active Nutrition
Tribal Active Nutrition are a sports nutrition brand based in Exeter. All their products use the super fruit baobab and have an ethical and sustainable source.
They’ve recently raised £150,000 through crowdfunding on Crowdcube to bring their products to supermarkets and sports shops so a huge congratulations to them!
They’re also using it to develop a new range or fruit smoothies that focus on coconut and baobab, which sounds like a match made in heaven.
This is great news for them and the products look great, we can’t wait to see them on shelves!
