cows in the field


The Finlay family have farmed at Rainton since the 1920s, and with each generation comes new priorities and new approaches to producing food from this beautiful part of Galloway.

In the 1930s and 40s the goal was to produce food for a hungry population during the years surrounding the second world war. Milk from the dairy cows was used to create farmhouse cheese, the leftover whey was given to pigs reared for meat and sheep made use of any grassy areas that were less well suited to cattle.

In the 1990s,  Rainton Farm started to diverge from the intensive direction of most of the dairy industry, and have been exploring ways of  producing food in a sustainable way.

Cream o’ Galloway Ice Cream was launched at the Royal Highland Show in 1994 and over the past twenty years we have extended  our range of flavours and expanded the Ice Cream Parlour and outdoor facilities in order to become a “destination attraction “ on the farm .

Cream o' Galloway was taken over in January 2024  by Brymor. Brymor Ice Cream is a North Yorkshire farm-based Dairy and Ice Cream manufacturing business with many similarities and synergies. The core synergy is that our Ice Cream is “made on the farm”.

Our ice cream has is sold throughout Scotland and the North of England. We have won numerous awards. Our ice cream remains true to its original values – a natural approach to creating delicious food.

Our customers delight in the enjoyment of simple, real, delicious dairy ice cream made and we delight in making it!
