Cheese and Gelato
Established in 2001, Zingerman's Creamery is dedicated to crafting handmade full-flavored cheeses and gelati using traditional methods while sourcing the highest quality milk we can find from equally dedicated, small-scale regional farmers.
We preserve the incredible flavor of the fresh milk we receive by using old-world techniques coupled with the most precious of resources, time. All of our cheeses are hand-ladled to preserve the delicate characteristics of the curd and we use uncommonly-long sets to draw out a full, complex flavor and a low-temperature long-time pasteurization to maintain that flavor.
The Cream Top Shop
Located on the South Side of Ann Arbor, Michigan, our Creamery retail shop is dedicated to purveying the highest-quality American made cheeses, beer, wine, and various accoutrements for all three. Our rotating selection includes exemplary cheeses from the best makers in the Nation as well as a curated selection of some historically incredible European imports. We also serve our hand-made gelati and sorbets from our dipping case.
