25 Years of Purbeck Ice Cream

25 Years of Purbeck Ice Cream

Purbeck Ice Cream is celebrating 25 years in business making Multi Award Winning, entirely natural and rather scrumptious ice creams and sorbets on the farm overlooking Corfe Castle in Purbeck in a range of traditional, unique and innovative flavours and sizes to suit all occasions from tiny tubs through to the larger catering sizes – with many sizes in between!

25 years ago, Peter and Hazel Hartle and their three small sons farmed 120 acres running 60 head of Friesian cows when the government imposed milk quotas rendering the dairy farm unviable. To stay on the farm, a plan had to be formed pretty quickly and making ice cream fit the bill perfectly.

The first tubs were sold to local retailers and a handful of restaurants generous enough to trust us to make a product that could be sold and enjoyed throughout Purbeck. We firmly crossed our fingers, and beavered away trying out different combinations of flavours to entice more customers to taste and, with grit determination, a dedicated and enthusiastic team of 17 and a will to succeed, today Purbeck Ice Cream is available on land across the UK, on sea on many cruise ships and in the air on swish airlines firmly putting Purbeck on the map.

Everything is made with fun, love and passion by our small and friendly team using fresh Purbeck milk, thick Dorset double cream, British sugar and an abundance of only the very best natural ingredients using no artificial additives, no GMO’s and no added colours or nuts, everything is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians making this an indulgence that just about everyone can enjoy!
