The Creamery Can
This family-run coffee shop and ice-cream business is the 10th member of Economusee in Northern Ireland. By visiting a workshop, tourists and visitors will gain an enhanced experience; learn about the history of the craft and the business; the enthusiasm of the artist along with the added opportunity of meeting the artisans face to face and discovering the beauty and authenticity of the products made and sold onsite.
The Creamery Can ice-cream is made on the farm beside the coffee-shop, just off the Frosses Road near Glarryford in Ballymena.
Hugh Reid, who is passionate about his ice-cream said: “Alyson and I researched and trialled recipes to combine our organic milk and cream with other ingredients such as locally produced fruit and berries. Our ice-cream is made on the farm to the highest quality to ensure that consumers enjoy the velvety smoothness and the creamy richness”.
