Domestic Cheese

Zingerman's Creamery

Ann Arbor, Michigan

Zingerman’s began making cheese in 2001 with the desire to offer a traditional, old fashioned hand-made cream cheese at Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor. The success of this cream cheese led them to expand to a lineup of fresh cheeses. They source the cow’s milk from Calder Dairy and Van Buskirk Family dairy out of Carleton, Mi, and their goat’s milk from various small farmers throughout Michigan. Zingerman’s uses old-world techniques and time to preserve the flavor of the fresh milk. All cheeses are hand-ladled to preserve the characteristics of the curd. Most of the cheeses are named after Michigan towns.

The Manchester

Through gentle pasteurizing and slow culturing of the milk, this cheese is able to retain the character of the milk. Heavy cream is added and a savory, earthy flavor develops. As this cheese ages it becomes denser with creaming around the edges and the farm flavors become more pronounced.
