Meet The Herd...

Why Do We Keep Guernsey Cows?

Guernsey cows are known for their docile and friendly nature. Rather than trample you to death, they want to lick you to death! They don't produce as much milk as other breeds do but they make up for it in the creaminess of their milk, quality not quantity! Other dairy breeds typically have butterfat of 3.5% whilst our Guernseys are up at 5.5%- that's the secret to making the most delicious ice cream.

Happy cows produce more and better quality milk. A scientific study has shown that if you name a cow and treat her as an individual she will produce 500 pints more milk a year.

Their welfare is crucial to our business, and we do everything to make our girls happy!

We are one of the only herds of pedigree Guernseys in the UK with over 200 cows currently producing our lovely milk. Managing a pedigree herd takes skill, time and lots of effort and we have a dedicated team that specialises in the three stages of looking after the herd.

Say Hi to our Farmer Phill!

Our Guernseys are taken care of by Phill Carlisle and his team based at Thornton Lodge, Finghall. Phill has many years experience of farming and is very focused on ensuring our Guernseys receive the very best care, food and attention at all times.

Guernsey Cows need a little more attention than some other breeds, particularly when they are starting out, so we house our calves at Brymor - keeping them tucked up in a cosy barn until the warmth of Spring when they can graze on our pasture here at the farm.  

The calf shed is open to the public so why not call in and see the calves and make it a part of your visit to the Parlour?  
Our opening times

Call and see the calves soon - they love a good selfie in the barn!

Show Success

This Summer our Guernsey Girls 'Chloe' and 'Flo' have been super busy attending local shows across the region. The girls have been impeccably well turned out at every event, and are always on their very best behaviour. This season the girls have won a total of nine prizes, and four of them were in the top two places! A big well done to our Guernsey Girls, not forgetting our resident 'Cow Girl' Rosie Grant, for all her hard work and dedication to our girls.

Welcome to our new website

We’re delighted to welcome you to our new website, which has been made for us by Purple Creative Services, another Yorkshire based business. Brymor has recently changed ownership, and, whilst we want to stay faithful to the history of the company and continue making our famous ice cream, we decided that we would give the brand a bit of a facelift, and our new website is part of this.

On our new website you can learn all about our Guernsey cows and exactly how we use their creamy milk to make our delicious ice cream. You can also see all of our ice cream flavours (we introduce new ones regularly!) and view our food and drinks menus. Finally, we’ll be keeping you up to date with all our latest news and goings on at the farm and dairy, including telling you which of our herd has won Cow of the Month for producing the most milk!

Please have a good look around – we’d love to know what you think!
