A renowned Wensleydale ice cream parlour has launched a new farm shop which aims to promote and celebrate Yorkshire’s food producers.
Brymor Ice Cream Parlour, based at High Jervaulx Farm near Masham, is already well known for it’s award winning Guernsey ice cream which has been made and served on the farm since 1984. A retail farm shop has now been included as part of the Parlour and Café, offering a selected range of locally sourced produce.
As an initial pilot scheme, the farm shop will stock other award winning Yorkshire producers such as Shepherd’s Purse cheese, Yorkshire Dales Meat, Wensleydale Cheese and Raydale Preserves, while their own ice cream will also be available in take home packs.
The existing ice cream Parlour and Café, which attracts more than 150,000 people each year, will continue to serve more than 35 flavours of award winning dairy ice cream, plus light lunches, snacks and refreshments. This is the first phase of planned developments which include the expansion of the café, the introduction of a farm animal viewing area and an education zone for children to learn about farming and dairy production.
Operations Director Nicola Moore said “Yorkshire has an amazing range of food producers and as dairy farmers and producers ourselves, we are passionate about promoting great quality, locally sourced food and the importance of the farming industry. We get fantastic feedback about our ice cream from our visitors to the Parlour and we hope our new farm shop will help more people to appreciate and celebrate what other Yorkshire producers have to offer.” The parlour and farm shop are open daily from 9am-6pm.
