A little bit about our history, where we came from and how we came to be milking cows out West.
The farm has been handed down through four generations to Bridget who farms it today with her son Nicky, alongside brother Rob who runs the ice cream business. The remaining four siblings make up the rest of the Moomaid team. Tremedda is farmed by a traditional and sustainable method of farming. This allows the cows to be housed throughout the winter and out from February to October weather depending.
Tremedda Farm has been in our family since 1905, when Great Great Grandmother Elsie Griggs persuaded her parents to move down from Scotland so she could be a farmer. In fact, our ice cream factory was the farm’s original milking parlour in the early 1900s when cows were milked by hand. Over the years, a few technological advancements aside, not much has changed.
As with any authentic farm house, the kitchen has always been at the heart of ours. From generation to generation, at the end of the day, whether spent working together or working alone, everyone will always come together for some traditional, home cooked food – and these days it’s usually followed by a few scoops of the latest flavour!
