Nestled in the Yorkshire Dales, Brymor has been making the finest Real Dairy Ice Cream since 1984. The secret lies in their cherished herd of pedigree Guernsey cows that graze lazily on lush Yorkshire grass. Guernseys are famous for their golden whole milk which is far creamier than other dairy cows can produce. Combining their milk with double cream, and sourcing only the finest natural ingredients makes for an indulgently rich finished taste, which they know we will enjoy as much as they do.
