Zingerman’s Creamery Cheese & Gelato

For Your Restaurant, Cafe, or Catering Outfit

We are proud to be working with quite a few of the most inventive restaurants and catering companies across the country, collaborating with chefs who come up with incredible creations using the cheeses and gelati we make here in Ann Arbor.

In addition to the range of award-winning cheese and gelati we have been making for years, we’re also keen to collaborate on new flavors and ideas with like-minded folks across the country. One of the things that bring us the most joy here is working with passionate chefs and food professionals to put their own unique twist on the things we make.

 


Zingerman’s Creamery Cheese & Gelato

For your Specialty Food Business

The bedrock of our business has been independent, inventive cheese and specialty shops from coast to coast, and we’ve learned through the years that some of the most fun we can have centered around working with great retailers.

Our cheeses run the gambit from cut-and-wrap beauties like the Lincoln Log, Detroit Street Brick, and Bridgewater Log, to retail-wrapped and ready to go favorites like the Manchester, Chelsea, and Napoleon, to a tasty line of pre-packed spreads and fresh cheeses. We’re confident we have a cheese or two (or 20!) that will complement your case.
One great resource we have here at the Creamery is access to an award-winning team of Marketing and Graphics professionals who create and curate the look and feel of all Zingerman’s products, and we have quite an array of marketing and support materials to help highlight our products on your shelves.

Our gelati and sorbets are made by hand with care to assure a perfect air-by-volume ratio and a dense, luscious mouthfeel.

Our Dairy Farm Partners

 

HK/New Era Dairy

Onondaga, MI (45 miles away)

HK/New Era Dairy is a joint venture combining two herds, Rusty Plummer’s Hickory Knoll Farms and Mike Metzger’s New Era, both in Onondaga, Michigan. We began working directly with them in October of 2011, and over the years their herd has developed into a fairly even mix of Alpine, Saanen, and Nubian goats. They deliver their raw goat’s milk to us in a small truck, preserving the delicate texture of the milk for a resulting curd that is hands down the best and richest we’ve ever worked with. We use kid rennet in all of our goat’s milk cheeses, leading to a silky smooth texture that avoids the graininess present in quite a few soft-ripened and fresh goat cheeses currently on the market.

Calder Dairy

Carleton, MI (20 miles away)

Calder Dairy was our very first farm partner when we opened our doors back in the Fall of 2001. John Loomis, our founding partner, visited several dairy farms throughout Michigan when we were laying the groundwork for the Creamery, and knew immediately that Calder was going to be a strong partner when he noticed they were the only farm that called their animals by name instead of by their number. Calder treats their herd with great compassion and care, and we believe that the way they handle their animals directly translates into better milk. Their mixed herd comprises Holstein, Jersey, and Brown Swiss breeds, and the milk has consistently and exceptionally high butterfat and protein counts.
