Everybody knows that ice cream is made with milk, cream and lots of other good stuff so that's why at Granny Gothards, the well-being of the Gothard's Holstein-Friesian girls come first. They are left grazing freely and stress free in the fields of the Somerset Levels. And the happy cows give it back to us with their exceptionally creamy milk.
So it's no surprise that Gothard Dairy farm has won some of the most prestigious awards: Pfizer Milk Quality Award, Farmer of the Future, Dairy Farmer of The Year and Exceptional Farming Standard by the Red Tractor Scheme.
When it comes to adding the tasty bits, there are plenty of good folks around us with amazing local products so when the season is right, all those fresh beauties go straight into our pots.
All our packaging is fully re-cyclable, FSC and made in England. The rest of the world may have some technical terms for this, such as Local Economy Growth or Reduction of Carbon Footprint but at Granny Gothards, we just call it : Common Sense.
We know that Ice Cream is everyone's favourite so we take every care producing ours. We hold the SALSA accreditation. We also really do want everybody to be able to enjoy Granny Gothards. So, today, we are proud to say all our products are Gluten Free and our Sorbets are suitable for Vegetarian and Vegan. We produce a range of ice creams suitable for Diabetics too - all as creamy and delicious as our regular range but made with Fructose sugar instead - and we have one made with Buffalo Milk for those with Dairy Allergies. We don't use any skimmed milk powders, artificial additives or colourings.
