Purbeck Ice Cream are a family-run business based in Kingston, near Wareham. They have operated since 1988, when owners Peter and Hazel Hartle converted their dairy farm into an ice cream manufacturer. They have since gone from strength to strength, scooping numerous awards for innovation and developing a presence throughout the UK.

Purbeck Ice Cream donate 5p from every tub of their Jurassic Range to the Jurassic Coast Trust, to help protect and conserve the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The Jurassic Range features Dig-A-Saurus, Ammonite Bites, Purbeck Rocks and Skull-Diggery, and is available in outlets across the Jurassic Coast.
