“YOU’RE only limited by your imagination.”

For Paul Miller, this mentality has seen his ice creams scoop the pool at the Dairy Industry Association of Australia WA Division ceremony on March 14.

Taking home to pasture two first places and five silver awards, it is the consistency of their product that Mr Miller said set them apart.

“To enter five products and collect five silver awards confirms to me that our ice cream is consistently good.” Mr Miller said.

Millers Ice Cream ticked over their fourth birthday on December 27 last year, making their success so early in their life that much sweeter.

The practicality of ice cream is what drew them into the business, with the ability to have time on their side in the creation of flavours a big positive.

“There’d be a mutiny if we didn’t have certain flavours,” Mr Miller laughed.

Mr Miller said he could almost pick exactly what kind of ice cream flavour someone would select when they walked through the door.

As a rule of thumb, particularly for the youth, green ice cream would intrigue the boys while anything pink the girls would flock to.

For the moment, salted caramel is the crowd favourite.

The past four years has seen Millers Ice Cream open up four venues across the South West, with one making its way to Rockingham.

Mr Miller said the team enjoyed collaborating with other local businesses in the area to create their product, with honeycomb from the Candy Cow and coffee from Yahava being two of the more popular additions to the fridge.

Mr Miller said they were also working on developing a new addition to their farm café area with a public milking shed being constructed.

In the next six weeks the idea should come to fruition with Mr Miller saying the idea was to teach visitors and locals about the dairy industry and to give them a taster into the life of a farmer.

“You’ve heard of paddock to plate, well we go cow to cone,” Mr Miller said.
