You’re loyal to heirloom tomatoes. You’re in love with brick-oven bread. Now it’s time for cheese. Narragansett Creamery is where salty sea meets rocky shore, where historical landscape meets hip city center. With the blessing of happy cows, beneficent bacteria and salty ocean air, our cheeses are sure to make you smile.
Our Creamery began in 2007 when local food advocate Louella Hill joined forces with Mark Federico, owner of Providence Specialty Products (a little-known cheese manufacturer on the city’s Westside). Putting together their passion for cheese and knowing the time was right, they started to craft small batches of Gouda, Feta and farmers’ cheeses (queso blanco). The idea took off like dynamite.
Narragansett Creamery is currently the only producer of cheeses in Rhode Island. Making cheeses with fresh, milk not only helps dairy farmers (our heroes!) but helps Planet Earth as well. Instead of flying cheeses in from far away, our cheeses are produced RIGHT HERE on the very ground you’re standing on.
As a food producer, we hope to be educators, teaching our community a little more about where food comes from. If people know dinner began with cows living down the road, they’re more likely to care for the land those cows live on. Understanding these connections will lead us to a brighter future.
