The background...

Sian and Richard Powell officially started trading as 'Hapus Real Diary Ice Cream' in May 2008. Although locals may know the ice cream as ‘Minolis of Machen’, which it was called when Sian's parents, Sue and Lewis Richards were running the business. The Powell's have since opened a small parlour and visitor centre, on the farm in Machen, right next to the factory where the ice cream is made. The farm is built into the mountain overlooking the valley; it is a beautiful location with stunning views. There are many beautiful country walks close by, including one public footpath on the farm itself. They are a very family friendly venue, with three small children of their own they have to be!

Where to buy Hapus Ice-Cream...

During the winter you will need to visit us at the farm in order to buy our ice cream. During the summer months on warm days you can find our Hapus unit at the rear of Caerphilly Castle in Daffydd Williams Park.
