Name it Native! Win the chance to name an ice cream.

June 07, 2023

 Celebrate the launch of our charity partnership with Bristol Zoological Society and win the chance to name an ice cream!

We are so excited to announce our official charity partnership with the team at Bristol Zoological Society, specifically supporting the work they are doing to protect and conserve the UK’s native species.
To celebrate, we're giving you the chance to name an ice cream! We're looking for new animal-themed names, inspired by species native to the UK, for our Plant Based ice creams which will be available to enjoy at Wild Place Project.
Which flavours are needing a name?
Salted Caramel 🍮
Mint Choc
We are specifically supporting Bristol Zoological Society’s Native Species Programme, so we'd love you to take inspiration from some of the best of British animals, both existing and from the past. Red Squirrels, Wood Mice, Grey Seals, Little Owls – let your imagination run wild!
As a conservation and education charity, the mission of Bristol Zoological Society is to save wildlife through conservation research science, the protection of species and habitats, while educating and inspiring a new generation of wildlife warriors. 
Visitors to Wild Place Project (to be called Bristol Zoo Project from summer 2023) have been enjoying Marshfield Farm Ice Cream for almost 10 years. The two teams have formed a strong relationship and this year are launching bespoke animal-themed ice cream names, which will be available to enjoy at Wild Place Project, and also celebrates the creation of a new conservation zoo. 
The new Plant-Based names will sit alongside some of our own creations, including Red Deer Raspberry 🦌, StrawBEARy 🐻 and Honey Bee Honeycomb 🐝 
The winners will also receive a month's supply of ice cream and tickets to Wild Place Project!
The decision to launch official charity partnerships has been driven by our community, who earlier this year completed our Materiality Assessment. This was a survey asking what is most important to our community: our customers, suppliers, local residents and the Marshfield team. Three topics stood out: animal welfare, ethical farming and education, and so we have selected partners that are just as passionate about these themes as we are.
Justin Morris, CEO of Bristol Zoological Society said: “Our journey to develop a new conservation zoo at Wild Place Project starts this summer, when we rename the site Bristol Zoo Project, before construction starts in 2024. It’s an exciting time and we are so pleased that visitors and supporters like Marshfield are coming on the journey with us.”

 UPDATE: The competition is now closed, we'll be selecting our winning names and notifying the winners!
