Cowgirl Creamery

Cowgirl Creamery produces award winning artisanal cheeses. The LGBT founders, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith, both worked in fine dining restaurants before moving into cheesemaking. Two decades, dozens of awards, two creameries, four retail stores and two thousand tons of cheese later, it’s safe to say they’ve earned their cowgirl 10-gallon hats! Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are sold in over 500 stores, independent cheese shops, farmers markets, and nationally through Whole Foods Markets.

The Protein Bakery is one of those finds you almost don’t want to tell anyone about, a secret so good you want to keep it to yourself! The treats here are amazing!

Visiting the store in NYC is like walking into your favorite cookie bakery, the smell is amazing! They have gift specials and can deliver all over the world. Visit for more information.
