The Company

The company have been milking their herd of Holstein Friesian cows at Brunswood Farm, Derby since 1953.

In 2007, the family looked at ways that the farm could be preserved for future generations, ensuring also that the cows could continue to produce their wonderfully creamy milk.  The answer came in a light bulb moment one tea time around the farmhouse kitchen table when the family were tasting one of the many poor quality mass produced ice creams available at the time.

From the outset, we spent a lot of time developing our flavours and using only the finest ingredients. We carefully tried out over 20 different vanillas and over 30 different chocolates until we found our ultimate goal. Our aim was to use local or British produce wherever possible for our very special, very British Ice Cream!

If you haven't heard from us within 14 days of the advertised closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful.  STRICTLY NO AGENCIES.
