At Zingerman’s Creamery, we are passionate about creating the best dairy foods possible from some truly exceptional Michigan cow and goat’s milk. Honoring the traditions of cheese and gelato making, we make ours in small batches, using as much time as necessary to tease out incredible flavors and textures
We wholesale our handmade cheeses and gelati in a variety of sizes and formats to specialty grocery retailers, caterers, and restaurants from coast to coast, always looking to build more sustainable relationships with people who are as passionate as we are about great food. We believe that You Really Can Taste the Difference, and we’d be thrilled to give you a taste of what we do.

Slow Food. Great Ingredients.
We preserve the incredible tastes of fresh milk and cream through the use of century-old tools and techniques. All of our cheeses are low-heat pasteurized to maintain the original flavor of the milk, we use uncommonly long sets to draw out a full, complex flavor and our cheeses are hand-ladled to preserve the delicate characteristics of the curd.Learn More
