On the blog today we caught up with Amanda and Jean from the wonderful Granny Gothards.
"We have been friends and work colleagues for almost a decade and have a wide variety of career experiences between us. It is a huge pleasure for us to be able to combine all these elements into a business of our own. We are enthusiastic, hardworking, resourceful and (we have been told!) quite a dynamic partnership.
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 being made at the moment 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.
It is our personal mission to share our gorgeous ice creams and sorbets with as many people as possible - it would surely be selfish not to share this 'guilty pleasure'. With a product as fantastic as Granny Gothards this will not be difficult, the taste does the work for us.
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.
Amanda Stansfield and Jean Allen
