Meet the Supplier - Brymor

Author:Eden Farm Hulleys

Brymor Dairy produces 30 different flavours of ice cream made with milk from its own herd of pedigree Guernsey cows and produces Yorkshire Ice Cream made with everyday milk from local farms. Everything is made by hand on the farm in the Yorkshire Dales. The farm has an ice cream parlour, farm shop and cafe which is a major regional tourist destination attracting more than 300,000 visitors a year.

Brymor ice cream has been recognised at The Great Taste Awards with one star for Vanilla Ice Cream and two stars for Ginger and Black Cherry Whim Wham Ice Cream and Clotted Cream. The firm also supplies clotted cream, cream and full cream milk, all made with Guernsey milk from its own herd of Guernsey cows.

Wensleydale-based Brymor Ice Cream has achieved double national recognition in the Guild of Fine Foods 2018 Great Taste Awards, winning a One Star Award for its Guernsey milk and a One Star Award for its supermarket brand, Yorkshire Ice Cream.

Great Taste is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.

Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste, values taste above all else, with no regard for branding or packaging. The judges savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.

Brymor has been recognised by The Awards for the last three consecutive years and their farm-made Brymor ice cream is one of only five made in the UK from Guernsey milk. Established in 1984, Brymor Guernsey Ice Cream is now sold in more than 300 independent retailers and farm shops.

Yorkshire Ice Cream was only launched in 2017 and it is already proving a hit in supermarkets and convenience stores.

This year’s Awards attracted a record 12,634 entries yet only 3,658 achieved an award.

Brymor’s Managing Director Paul Hodgson said “We are delighted that two of our key products have been recognised by The Guild of Fine Foods. The Guernsey milk we produce is the foundation of all our Brymor products so their appreciation of it is a real mark of quality”. He added “Yorkshire Ice Cream is made to a similar recipe but made with everyday milk and the judges have obviously recognised the skill with which we have created a great tasting affordable product”.

The panel of judges this year included; MasterChef 2018 champion, Kenny Tutt, chef and food writer, Elly Curshen, eco chef and food writer, Tom Hunt, author and chef, Zoe Adjonyoh, baker Tom Herbert, author and blogger, Izy Hossack, and baker and recipe writer, Martha Collison, as well as food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges and Sourced Market.
