Provenance

Our Cow Molly

Our Cow Molly Dairy Ice Cream, United Kingdom

  • Founded: 1947
  • Employees: 20
  • Directors: 5

In 1947 my grandad Hector Andrew started our dairy farm. We are located in Dungworth on the top of one of the seven Hills Sheffield is built on.

When my grandad first started delivering his bottled milk in Sheffield, a pint of milk had the same value as a loaf of bread and a pint of beer.

60 years later my Mum, Dad and Brother are running the farm. Today the milk price is so poor three UK dairy farmers a day are giving up producing milk. We didn’t want to be next so Our Cow Molly dairy ice cream was born!

We have been producing our ice cream since 2007 and have had great support from the people of Sheffield.

The big difference in our ice cream is that we use fresh milk and cream, not many ice cream producers can afford to buy in so much dairy product, but we have 80 cows so that’s no problem for us.
