Stock Up On Fresh Baked Sweets And Farm-Fresh Eats At The Bakery On Wright’s Dairy Farm In Rhode Island
Located in North Smithfield, Wright’s Dairy Farm has been in business for over a century. But while the dairy farm does produce some excellent milk (and ice cream), it’s far from the only reason to visit. The onsite bakery is truly the stuff dreams are made of.
Technically, Wright's Dairy Farm has been around since 1896, when the first deed for the current farm property was recorded in North Smithfield.
By the early 1900s, the farm had chickens, pigs, horses, and around a dozen cows. Back then, the milk was delivered (raw) to local homes daily. By 1914, the farm was more established, and more cows were added to the lineup.
In the 1970s, the family opened a retail farm on the store.
When Claire started baking and selling pies and cream puffs using family recipes, they were a huge hit. The bakery officially opened a few years later, and the rest is history.
These days, Wright's Dairy Farm & Bakery is open to the public daily.
Guests can stop by between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. (5 p.m. on Sundays), pet the cows, and sometimes even see them get milked.
The family cares about the cows here, keeping them healthy and hormone free.
They also bottle the milk onsite, which keeps it fresh -- and it makes some seriously delicious ice cream.
When you visit the farm, checking out the bakery is an absolute must.
This bakery is renowned for using only the highest quality ingredients, and the pastry chef's skills are unparalleled.
The bakery specializes in cupcakes, cream pastries, flaky pastries, pies, bars, sweet rolls, cookies, and cakes.
Flavors often change with the seasons since the ingredients stay fresh, so you'll see berry pies in the summer and pumpkin treats in the fall.
If you've got a special occasion coming up, just place an order with the cake shop and let them handle it.
They'll make anything from a small birthday cake to a large wedding cake, and it will be artistic (and melt-in-your-mouth good).
If you come at lunchtime, don't leave without trying the bakery style pizza.
It's pulled from the oven and served piping hot, and it's fantastic.
The bakery is stocked daily and the cows are always ready to say hello.
Take a day trip to Wright's Dairy Farm & Bakery the next time you need to relax and unwind.
