Putting Somerset ice cream on the international map

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

Welcome to Granny Gothards!


Ice Cream and Sorbets

Located on a farm in the very heart of the Somerset Levels is where you will find Granny Gothards Ice Creams and Sorbets being lovingly made in the famous Ice Pod.

As artisan ice cream makers we believe in adding nothing artificial and using only the very finest natural ingredients to make our amazing multi award winning ices.

As the Company goes from strength to strength we have continued to make our ices in the same traditional way but on a larger scale. The milk is still collected every morning , fresh South West Double Cream is still delivered daily and owner Amanda Stansfield says that as demand for the ice creams grows we will continue to make ice cream in the same way and will not be tempted to move away from the high quality artisan ice cream we produce now.

The range of flavours grows every more varied. We work so closely with our customers, and are continually developing new flavours, look out for their Saffron & Cardamom Ice Cream, LittlePod Vanilla Beer Ice Cream and coming soon a Buffalo Milk Ice Cream.

As well as being free from all additives, Granny Gothards Ices are also Gluten Free and we cannot forget to mention our amazing range of over 30 flavours of sorbets, all made with alcohol, real fruits and herbs.

Granny Gothards are now exporting our ices and have definitely put Somerset on the International Map. We recently won Taunton Deane Micro Business of the Year and our totally unique Chuckleberry Ice Cream has just won 2 Gold * in the GTA 2016.

You can visit the Ice Pod and buy all the ice creams and Sorbets you want, and then share them with your friends....... That is if you love them enough!

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.
