About Us

Nestled in the Yorkshire Dales, Brymor has been making the finest Real Dairy Ice Cream since 1984. The secret lies in our 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 we know you will enjoy as much as we do.

We don’t cut corners and remain true to our distinctive flavour and texture. We have a genuine passion for our craft, and the quality of our creations. You can sample our hard work at our parlour and café on the farm in Wensleydale with over 35 different varieties of ice-cream and sorbets or check out our stockists to satisfy your craving.

Heritage

Our story begins in 1984 when milk quotas were introduced, forcing Brian Moore (hence the name), to diversify the spare milk from his small Guernsey herd into making ice cream. After some trial and error, and lots and lots of tastings sessions, Brian perfected the recipe which we haven’t changed since.

On their small farm in Weeton, Brian and his wife, Brenda, would make the ice cream in the morning then sell it in the afternoon from an 8ft square hut at the farm gates. Countless awards followed, and word quickly spread of the richest, creamiest ice cream going and visitors flocked to the farm. It became so popular that local residents began to complain that their quiet little village had become overrun with traffic; it was time to find somewhere more suitable. After searching the length and breadth of the country, our current location at High Jervaulx, in lower Wensleydale, was chosen as the ideal place to take the business forward.

A new purpose built manufacturing plant and parlour were built to cope with demand, with the parlour becoming an obligatory stop for passing visitors- we now attract over 300,000 people annually.

The Present

Today Brymor goes from strength to strength and we remain the only producers of ice cream in Yorkshire making ice cream with milk from our own herd of Pedigree Guernsey Cows.  Brymor is now stocked in more than 300 independent retailers, farm shops and selected supermarkets including Waitrose and Booths.  We make all our ice cream by hand here on the farm and we are proud to have on public view the calves and young stock from our herd who will one day produce the milk we use for our ice cream.

We are delighted to be regular award winners and from The Great Taste Awards to The Great Yorkshire Show Awards, Brymor is known to be the best in class.  We also win awards for showing our calves at Agricultural Shows - why not come and see us and cheer us on! You can find out more about the herd and where we are on show here.  We love what we do and we are continually finding ways of creating new ice cream and making a trip to our Ice Cream Parlour the best it can be.  For 2018 we have already added to the indoor play area, opened a new outdoor Children's Trike Track and extended the car park to make a visit to us more enjoyable and comfortable. 

You can keep up to date with what's happening at Brymor on Facebook and Twitter and you can visit us here at The Parlour seven days a week.  We hope you will visit us soon at High Jervaulx Farm or you'll enjoy Brymor ice cream at home.
