Our Story

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. 

Giving Back

We donate time and money to good people and good causes — organizations out there doing the work to make our communities a better place to live, and our planet a better place for us all. We believe it’s our responsibility to share what’s been given to us, and bring joy through our actions as well as our ice cream.

2% for Conservation

Because we believe in supporting our neighbors and communities, we are a 2% for Conservation certified business. We donate 1% of proceeds to nonprofits that support conservation efforts to preserve the places we love and we donate 1% of our time to causes that do the same.

Meet, Ellie

Owner of Genuine Ice Cream

"In early 2020, I bought the business that I had worked passionately behind the scenes to help create — spending 3 years as the General Manager before stepping into ownership. I poured my heart and soul into building and growing a company that I could be proud of — one that donates generously, is respected in the business community, and offers a supportive and growth-oriented work environment. I've also always been connected with the outdoors – it's been my go-to place at different stages of my life. And, since it's taught me a lot about myself, I believe in giving back to organizations that protect it so that we can all enjoy the same opportunities."
