The Frozen Farrier

A few years ago, based on the recommendation of a friend, we made our way to 'The Yorkshire Food Capital' of Malton to seek out The Groovy Moo Ice Cream Parlour. We had heard so many good things about this family-owned artisan gelato maker that we just had to try it for ourselves.

The proprietors Ashley Smith and Michelle Walker launched Groovy Moo in 2015 and have gone from strength to strength ever since opening another outlet in Howden and recently a new production unit in Malton. Such is their warmth, commitment and passion for what they do we immediately felt akin to their vision to offer a first class ice cream product to the market.

It was at this time The Farrier / Groovy Moo partnership was born. There are endless superlatives we could use to describe Groovy Moo gelato but I think the words of one of their fans sums it up rather well. “Easily the best ice cream in the world.” It really is that simple!

Do come and try this truly scrumptious gelato for yourselves, but be warned… it’s addictive! The Farrier is proud to be a chosen partner of Groovy Moo Artisan Gelato and we look forward to welcoming you at The Frozen Farrier.
