Our Herd – Brymor Dairy

Meet the Team

As the saying goes "it's the teamwork that makes the dream work". We are a small, enthusiastic team that shares a passion for great ice cream. It's always a busy day at Brymor so it's a good thing we are all great at multi-tasking! So, whilst our job titles are shown here, we all muck in to make sure we are making and serving amazing ice cream!

Christine is our longest serving and valuable member of the Brymor Team. Christine takes all the phone orders and enquiries and is the friendly voice at the end of the phone for all of our customers. Her knowledge is invaluable and can turn her hand to anything in the office - including keeping James in check!

Kate joined us in Spring 2019 and has already settled into the team here at Brymor HQ. Kate keeps us all on our toes and ensures all things finance are sorted! Her guilty pleasure is our salted caramel ice cream!

Kate Deakin

Head of Finance


Mike is the ultimate epitome of a proper ice cream man (or person). He serves on the streets of local towns and villages and also serves at special events and local shows. He's always happy and smiling whilst he's serving your favourite scoop!


Ice Cream Van Driver


Paul bought Brymor in 2015 and has carried on where the Moore family left off, still keeping the traditions of using milk from the pedigree Guernsey Herd. The provenance of Brymor real dairy ice cream is still one of the core values on the business.

Paul Hodgson

Managing Director


Farmer Phil is our vital link between cow and cone. He completed his education at Harper Adams University and now looks after our herd, it's a joy to see the relationship between him and the herd. You never see him without a smile on his face (or even the odd rugby injury!)

Phill Carlisle



Ruth is with us again for another busy summer, she is from farming stock and boy does she get the job done. Ruth ensures all our fleet are out and arrive at shows and events on time, well-stocked and ready to serve our delicious ice cream,

Sarah leads the team in our busy ice cream parlour here on the farm. Sarah is from a very busy hospitality background and we are delighted to have her skills as no two days are the same in the parlour. We could have anything from a tractor to a coach driving into the car park.
