A little bit of farm talk

The ice cream parlour (ice pod) is based on Gothards Farm in Stoke St Gregory at the heart of the Somerset Levels. We collect the milk for our ices fresh from the milking parlour each day so the ice cream comes literally from 'pasture to pot' in one day!

Much is made about the quality and nature of ingredients used in ice cream but Granny Gothards has been, is and always will be made from the finest dairy ingredients.

Granny Gothards is moving forward with planned expansions to the Ice Pod to enable us to increase our production capacity.

We made the decision at the very start of the business that we would always produce our handmade ice creams in the same traditional way as we have always done and not to compromise on quality by changing to alternative methods. We are continuing to do this as we grow to meet the exacting demands of our ever increasing base of customers.

Our core values are as always, Quality without Compromise and Exceptional Customer Service and with this in mind we promise to undertake the following;

  • To produce the highest Quality Natural Products in the safest environment
  • To delight, satisfy and nourish our customers
  • To support our team members and provide an environment conducive to excellence and happiness
  • To create ongoing wining partnerships with all our suppliers

And so the expansion begins with the arrival of a new machine in a few weeks (a third to follow shortly), the development of the Ice Pod and the recruitment of more staff.

We will keep you up to date with all our news as and when it happens, but we can assure you that Granny Gothards will now and always deliver you the very best quality ice creams and sorbets

Affordable Luxury, Naturally from the Farm

We are confident that you will be delighted with our ice creams; even confirmed non ice cream lovers have become converts and don't forget out mouth-watering sorbets.

We welcome your enquiries and comments and please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Multi Award-Winning Farm

Gothard farm won the prestigious Pfizer Milk Quality Award in 2003. Since then it has earned several farm management awards - most recently 'Farmer of the Future 2008' - and Granny Gothards has also recently been recognised for its outstanding quality.


Animal Welfare

Gothard's gorgeous black and white cows are at the heart of our business. Gothards pride themselves on great animal welfare, comfort and stress-free surroundings.


Old Dairy Parlour

Our Old Dairy Parlour was converted into the modern, inspiring and clean environment that is Granny Gothards HQ, affectionately known as 'The Ice Pod'. This was finished in December 2005 and we have been creating and producing delicious ice creams and sorbets since then.
