At Genuine Ice Cream, our business is ice cream and our purpose is community. 

We are Genuine Ice Cream, a Bozeman, Montana based small-batch, hand-made ice creamery that draws inspiration from the Montana lifestyle. We work hard, enjoy life’s simple pleasures and treat everyone like our neighbor. 

We use premium, select ingredients and house-perfected recipes to create ice cream that people look forward to indulging in. We love seeing people gather together to share in the joy of a sweet, simple treat that makes them feel like they’re soaking up a Montana summer. 
Our
Owner

Ellie Southworth

In early 2020 I bought the business that I had worked tirelessly developing. Almost 5 years after starting as Production Manager, Genuine Ice Cream has a year-round shop, a bustling production kitchen, and a staff of over twenty.

I poured my heart and soul into building and growing a company that I could be proud of - one that supports our community, that is respected in the business community, and that provides a supportive and growth-oriented work environment and culture for its employees.

The outdoors has always provided me with different things I have needed at different stages of my life. When I was younger, it gave me independence and confidence. Today, it is more therapeutic and quiet. It’s how I handle the stress of running a business. Because the outdoors is capable of providing us with so much, I believe in giving back to organizations that protect it and ensure future generations will enjoy the same opportunities.
