Meet The Herd...

Why Do We Keep Guernsey Cows?

Guernsey cows are known for their docile and friendly nature. Rather than trample you to death, they want to lick you to death! They don't produce as much milk as other breeds do but they make up for it in the creaminess of their milk, quality not quantity! Other dairy breeds typically have butterfat of 3.5% whilst our Guernseys are up at 5.5%- that's the secret to making the most delicious ice cream.

Happy cows produce more and better quality milk. A scientific study has shown that if you name a cow and treat her as an individual she will produce 500 pints more milk a year.

Their welfare is crucial to our business, and we do everything to make our girls happy!

We are one of the only herds of pedigree Guernseys in the UK with over 200 cows currently producing our lovely milk. Managing a pedigree herd takes skill, time and lots of effort and we have a dedicated team that specialises in the three stages of looking after the herd.

Say Hi to our Farmer Phill!

Our Guernseys are taken care of by Phill Carlisle and his team based at Thornton Lodge, Finghall. Phill has many years experience of farming and is very focused on ensuring our Guernseys receive the very best care, food and attention at all times.

Guernsey Cows need a little more attention than some other breeds, particularly when they are starting out, so we house our calves at Brymor - keeping them tucked up in a cosy barn until the warmth of Spring when they can graze on our pasture here at the farm.  

The calf shed is open to the public so why not call in and see the calves and make it a part of your visit to the Parlour?  
Our opening times
can be found here http://www.brymordairy.co.uk/Parlour-Cafe.

Call and see the calves soon - they love a good selfie in the barn!

Show Success

This Summer our Guernsey Girls 'Chloe' and 'Flo' have been super busy attending local shows across the region. The girls have been impeccably well turned out at every event, and are always on their very best behaviour. This season the girls have won a total of nine prizes, and four of them were in the top two places! A big well done to our Guernsey Girls, not forgetting our resident 'Cow Girl' Rosie Grant, for all her hard work and dedication to our girls.

We celebrate our fresh new look with a #SummerofLove

We’ve been dreaming about the warm weather well, since last Summer actually and now it’s here at last!  So we are celebrating with the launch of the #SummerofLove.  We love everything about Summer so we will be celebrating with competitions and giveaways we think you will love too!  Keep in touch with us on social to find out more about Brymor’s #SummerofLove.

This Summer you will also see we look a bit different too as we launch our new brand to help us stand out from the crowd and celebrate the unique taste of Brymor, which is all thanks to the milk we use from our own herd of amazing Guernsey cows. 

If you enjoy Brymor at home, you can now find us in more stores than ever as our top flavours are available in supermarkets across Yorkshire and The North East including the Co-Op, Morrisons and Booths. Now we’re stocked in more than 600 outlets from supermarkets to farm shops – see where you can buy Brymor here.

We know Brymor fans love to enjoy a scoop of ice cream out and about and at home and we’ve been working hard with ice cream parlours and shops to make sure you know where you can enjoy one of your favourites in a cone or a take home tub. Look out for our new signs at ice cream parlours, coffee shops and deli’s – find out where you can buy Brymor here.

Here at our own Ice Cream Parlour on the farm in Wensleydale, we have made some amazing changes for Summer we hope you will love. Aside from ice cream, our indoor and outdoor children’s play areas and go karts are all ready and waiting for families to enjoy.  We also have some of our lovely Guernsey calves on view too.

Whether you join us at the parlour, enjoy Brymor at home or visit one of our customers for your favourite scoop, we hope you will enjoy a Summer of Love with Brymor. #summeroflove
