Back in the 1940s, in a little town called Kaufman, Texas, Donald McGowen was the life of family gatherings, scooping up his delicious homemade vanilla ice cream recipe that was savored by all. Later, daughter Donna added fresh fruit and wowed the crowd with her rendition. The two essential ingredients that always gave their ice cream undeniable great flavor were: It was made from scratch, and It was made the right way…


Sixty years later, sister Tonya “Dale” continued the cherished family tradition, never wavering from the two essentials: 

Made from scratch; Perfected in a Crank.  After expanding the family’s ice cream flavors list and cranking award-winning recipes, Tonya is bringing this fabulous taste of yesteryear to you and your family!

With her husband Ronnie (PawPaw Crank) by her side, Tonya (Nanny Crank) introduced "Two Old Cranks" Homemade Ice Cream.
