Granny Gothards, naturally from the farm - Handmade Somerset ice cream and sorbet

Welcome to Granny Gothards!


Ice Cream and Sorbets

We're passionate about ice cream! Located on the glorious Somerset Levels, the cows roam the land, munching on the lush grass in summer and snuggling up in their cosy barns in winter. They are so proud of the creamy milk they produce that they wanted us to share it with you.

So, conscious of anything artificial and loving the idea of using the fabulous local produce in our area, we make Granny Gothards ice creams. Seriously creamy and from pasture to pot in just a day, they truly are as fresh as it gets. Delicious! 100% natural, with no artificial additives, colourings or stabilisers.

Our mouth-watering sorbets are created using luscious fresh fruits, with a little water and sugar. Simple! They are as scrumptious as our ice creams, but totally dairy-free.

Ice Cream Kits

Our brand new ice cream kits were recently voted Best New Product at the 2014 Farm Shop and Deli Show !

They are now available for you to try in your own home. Currently available in 3 flavours for you to make, they will enable you to make the wonderfully smooth artisan ice cream that Granny Gothards is famous for.

You will need to add the dairy ingredients and together with the packs of secret recipe Anglaise and the natural flavouring you will make an ice cream that you can share with pride with your family and friends. So what are you waiting for, have a go and let us know how you get on.

We are currently developing the next flavours, ssshhhh but I think it is going to be White Belgian Chocolate ! so keep watching our web and Facebook sites and let us know if there are any ideas you have for the next amazing flavours.

You can make the Ice Cream without the need of an ice cream machine, bake your own sponge and then use the egg whites you have left over from the ice cream to make the perfect meringue to cover it all.

    Be careful no one takes your ice cream out of the freezer!!
