Baboo Gelato –

Baboo Gelato was set up in 2015 by Annie Hanbury, a trained gelatiere, who wanted to combine her passion for making seriously good ice cream with the glut of fabulous ripe fruit on her doorstep.

Annie decided she wanted to put the heart and soul back into ice cream making. She missed her children’s excitement and wonder as they chose from a gorgeous array of colourful and scrumptious flavours.
