Brymor Takes Over Easingwold Maize Maze

Brymor, one of the most famous independent ice cream makers in Yorkshire, has taken over the running of the award winning Easingwold Maize Maze.

The Maize Maze will become an outlet for the renowned ice cream brand and the move is designed to strengthen Brymor’s position in Yorkshire and the North East.

The 16-acre Maize Maze is a popular North Yorkshire visitor attraction situated on the A19 on the outskirts of the market town of Easingwold.

Brymor’s ice cream parlour at their High Jervaulx Dairy near Leyburn has become a major tourist attraction in the Dales with more than 300,000 visitors every year. They produce 24 different flavours of ice cream and Managing Director Paul Hodgson is looking forward to the launch of this latest venture in Easingwold.

He said: “Our aim is to ensure Brymor Ice Cream becomes the dominant brand in Yorkshire and the North East and we are excited about the opportunities that taking over the popular Maze will give us. Both Brymor and the Maze are award winning and our aim is to build on this success by combining a great day out for the family with locally made ice cream.”

Paul Caygill, who opened the Maze as part of his farm diversification scheme, said ”Combining one of North Yorkshire’s most popular family attractions with Brymor’s award winning ice cream is wonderful news for all of our loyal visitors who can look forward to an even more enjoyable time at the Maze.”

Brymor Ice Cream is produced from their own herd of Pedigree Guernsey Cows and the Maize Maze also relies on “cow power” with a local herd being fed the maize once the attraction has closed for the season.

The Maize Maze, now in its 15th year, will open on Monday 16th July until Sunday 2nd September and will feature its famous confusing maze puzzle and all the favourite activities including footgolf, go karts, giant inflatable slide, sand pits, picnic area and, of course, award winning ice cream! The ever popular pygmy goats and Alpacas are returning while the rabbits and guinea pigs will be in the small animal tent. This year a family ticket will cost £25 (four people) with adult tickets £8 and children and concessions £7.
