David a former national champion ice cream maker struck gold again at The National Ice Cream Competition in Harrogate with his mint chocolate chip flavour.
The competition is the most prestigious in the country and is run by The Ice Cream Alliance - the trade body for the UK's £1bn ice cream industry.
David, whose family run Ryeburn of Helmsley, is now working on developing a new flavour which will be launched on Yorkshire Day - August 1 - which is the day the business was founded 30 years ago.
"It's made for a wonderful start to our 30th anniversary celebrations although I can't believe the business has been running so long," said David.
"When we first started it was just a way of using up our surplus mils and increasing the retail value of the milk. It's worth much more as ice cream than as milk.
"Now we are providing jobs for 12 people and have a wide range of ice creams and sorbets.
"We are also producing bespoke flavours for fine dining restaurants including a langoustine, champagne and lemon zest flavour.
"I have never stopped enjoying experimenting and creating new flavours and I'm looking forward to developing something special for our anniversary celebrations."
David's ice creams are made behind his cafe at Church Farm, Cleveland Way, Helmsley
Zelica Carr, Chief Executive Officer of The Ice Cream Alliance, said: “Every year David works harder than ever to perfect his entries and this years' success shows once again that his ice creams are exceptional."
