Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery

200 Woonsocket Hill Rd, North Smithfield, R.I.

If you’ve had an exceptional piece of cake, pastry or scoop of ice cream in Rhode Island lately, there’s a good chance it came from Wright’s Dairy Farm. As a state (and out-of-state) staple, Wright’s has been whipping up incomparable local dairy goods since 1914, and there are many reasons why the farm has made such a name for itself.

First and foremost: freshness. Whether you choose to buy a quart of chocolate milk or a Funfetti birthday cake from Wright’s, you know exactly where it was made and processed – right there, on site, with milk that came directly from the herd of Holstein dairy cows that dot the pastoral landscape. Affectionately dubbed “happy cows,”  these ladies are the true stars of the operation, producing more than 9 gallons of milk every day. The milk is pasteurized and bottled on the farm within 24 hours and then it’s either delivered to local stores to be sold, or used for baking or making ice cream.  

There are a few ways to experience Wright’s, each of them with their own great perks. The original farm in North Smithfield is where you can scope out some amazing desserts at the bakery, see the cows being milked, visit the baby calves and take a self-guided tour to learn about the farm’s 100-year history.

Wright’s Creamery in Providence is the only “cow-to-cone” ice cream in Rhode Island, and where you’ll find the ice cream flavors of dreams – from Coffee Oreo to rainbow-swirled Unicorn. You can also catch The Wright Scoop in Warren, a fully renovated Streamline trailer, perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth on the go.
