About Hockings Dairy Cream Ices

Hockings Dairy Cream Ices is a small, long established family business which manufacture and retail their own original vanilla dairy ice cream from an old recipe handed down from previous generations.

The business was started in 1936 by Dave Hocking with one van, a 1928 Morris Cowley converted into an ice cream van by a local firm of coachbuilders. They expanded when Dave (senior) was joined by his son Dave (junior) after the war, and together with other family members they gradually expanded and added sites and vans until today the business has 14 vans and is run by grandsons Geoff and Neil Hocking and great grandson Andrew.

The ice cream is made to the same recipe as it has been for all four generations,using only the finest natural dairy ingredients,and has been awarded many diplomas by the Ice Cream Alliance over the years, including two Bronze medals for second place in the National Icecream Competitions, the first at Birmingham in 2006, and the second at Harrogate in 2011.
