Creamery Can – Local Produce

At the Creamery Can our milk which is used for our home made ice cream comes from a very nearby local source. In fact it is so close that a few visitors wandered by to take a look at how we are serving our ice cream and Knickerbocker Glory’s.

Creamery Can - Local ProduceNow there’s something you don’t see every day at your local coffee shop! These two calves were just born and decided to go for a walkabout to see what else goes on on their farm. Because the Creamery Can is part of Dundermot Farm you may well get a glimpse of some farm animals and get a visit from our farmyard dog, Alfie, when you call in for your lunch or a treat.


At the Creamery Can we love the fact that we can use produce from our own farm to make beautiful treats which we can serve to you – our customers. If you need a treat or are looking for a serene, and scenic place to enjoy a cuppa then head out to the Creamery Can on Dundermot farm and keep you eyes peeled as you might meet some of our local animal friends!

Homemade Scones at the Creamery Can

The Creamery Can, Ballymena, serve homemade scones with cream which are the perfect partner for a cup of tea. Our scones are hand made and as fresh as can be. They are a huge hit but we still are left with one question – How should we be pronouncing the word “scone”?

Homemade Scones at the Creamery Can

Well here at the Creamery Can we have been doing some research.

According to one academic study, two-thirds of the British population pronounce it SCON with the preference rising to 99% in the Scottish population. Similarly, in the Republic of Ireland, they pronounce it ‘scon’. Experts say this is the correct pronunciation of the term as Ireland is the birthplace of the scone. (Source)

and it turns out that we aren’t the only one who were wondering how to pronounce ‘scone’. Here is an old poem which tries to get to the bottom of it.

I asked the maid in dulcet tone
To order me a buttered scone;
The silly girl has been and gone
And ordered me a buttered scone. (Source)

At the Creamery Can in Ballymena we don’t care how you pronounce it – we only want you to enjoy it. Our fresh scones are a real customer favourite so we know that when you call out to try one you won’t be left disappointed. Come to the Creamery Can at Station Road in Glarryford and enjoy a cup of tea and one of our homemade scones.

Creamery Can Knickerbocker Glory

A Knickerbocker Glory from the Creamery Can outside Ballymena is enough to convince you that summer is coming. We introduced the Creamery Can Knickerbocker Glory to some of our customers last month and it is fair to say that verdict was overwhelmingly positive.

The Creamery Can Knickerbocker Glory can be designed by you. Pick your 2 favourite ice cream flavours and then sit back and enjoy.

Having a Knickerbocker Glory always takes us back to our childhood, when the summers always seemed to be longer and warmer. We know that kids today will enjoy our homemade ice cream just as much as we did back then.

Consider bringing your kids out – maybe a treat during revision time, or to celebrate the end of their exams. We know that lots of primary 7 pupils will be finding out about the school they will be going to in the new term – treat them to a special day out to the Creamery Can to let them celebrate moving on from Primary School. Really the Creamery Can Knickerbocker Glory is just an excuse for you to spend some time with the kids, and enjoy a tasty ice cream together.

Call out at the Creamery Can soon to enjoy our Homemade Ice Cream in a Knickerbocker Glory.
