Glastry Luxury Ice Cream For Home Delivery

Multi-award-winner Glastry Farm Ice Cream has launched a farm to doorstep delivery service in parts of Northern Ireland.

The company, an acclaimed producer of luxury ice cream and low-fat sorbets, has introduced the new doorstep service in response to approaches from customers who have been finding difficulty in sourcing the premium products made from farm’s pedigree dairy herd.

Glastry Farm Ice Cream, a family business based near Kircubbin in county Down, is a longstanding supplier to top chefs in high-end hotels and restaurants in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The new delivery service initially covers the Ards and North Down areas surrounding the company’s dairy farm.  The company will consider expanding the area covered

Founder and managing director Will Taylor says: “We’ve taken a great many calls from people here seeking our range of ice cream products in particular. These requests led us to set up our first-ever home delivery service. We will introduce a contactless payment system. Easter is traditionally the start of the ice cream season and so we wanted to ensure customers could access our products.

“The product sizes that we are focusing on are: 500ml, 1 litre, 5 litre and a 6 x 500ml tub box of various flavours such asvanilla, chocolate, honeycomb. Customers can check our full range of flavours on our website”

Orders for a minimum spend of £20 including free delivery can be placed through the company’s Facebook site.

Mr Taylor, a respected and successful dairy farmer, founded the business as a farm diversification project in 2007.

The company has won UK Great Taste and Blas na hEireannawards for the quality of its premium ice cream.

Glastry’s products have also won approval from Georgina Campbell’s Ireland, the island’s leading independent hospitality guide. The critically acclaimed guide, established by top food and hospitality writer Georgina Campbell, lists the best accommodation and food products on the island of Ireland.

The rich ice cream and creamy sorbets are handcrafted from fresh milk from the farm’s own pedigree Holstein-Friesian herd.

The products are free from artificial additives, stabilisers or other artificial ingredients, thereby assuring customers of the wholesomeness of the ice cream and sorbets.

The extensive range currently features over 20 ice creams and five low-fat sorbets.
