The Taylor family have been farming on the land at Glastry Farm near Kircubbin, Co. Down since 1856. They have a pedigree herd of dairy cattle which produces all the milk and cream for their wonderful products. This production is a real family affair, with the parents at the helm of production, a son looking after the dairy herd and a daughter minding the accounts. That's why the ice-cream has that special "cared for" taste, which only comes from personal commitment and dedication to the end-product. It has won many awards since the commencement of production in 2007. Glastry Farm Ice-cream has a "Safe and Local Supply Accreditation" with the production facilities on the farm fully approved by Environmental Health Authority. It's all good for the consumer who gets a true home produced and home made treat that has the authentic taste of real ice-cream.So what can we tell you about the ice cream.
