Beekman’s Homemade Ice Cream got started with Robert and Gloria Beekman, making ice cream for Weigert’s Prairie Farmstead outside of Palmer, IA and then Robert got ambitious and wanted to make some ice cream for the riders on RAGBRAI. He started out with one machine and a flat bed trailer. Look how we have grown.
