A new interactive, digital map has been launched showing where NFU members across England and Wales are producing real, British dairy ice cream.

The map is designed to connect the public with local dairy ice cream producers and help people discover top quality British dairy products as well as the stories behind each unique producer.

“With the market volatility that is now the norm in the UK and throughout the global dairy industry, it’s good to highlight how some farmers have decided to add value to milk on farm.”

NFU dairy board vice chairman Tom Rawson, who farms in Yorkshire, said: “With the market volatility that is now the norm in the UK and throughout the global dairy industry, it’s good to highlight how some farmers have decided to add value to milk on farm.

“We recognised that many of our dairy farmer members produce ice cream so we thought it would be a great idea to create a map to show exactly where the public can go out and buy it. Throughout the summer months the British dairy ice cream map will continue to grow as more NFU members are added.

“Real dairy ice cream, made with British milk, has a great taste and a creamy texture. Nothing beats it particularly on a hot, sunny, summer’s afternoon. It has all the competition licked.”

The NFU has teamed up with Yorkshire dairy Brymor to give away free samples of real British dairy ice cream. You can join us to find out more about the interactive map, learn more about Brymor and try one of the 40 wonderful flavours they produce using milk from their herd of Guernsey cows.
