From one man's vision
After a successful career in logistics, Kent LaPage started the Little milk man In 2006. His initial goal was the delivery of local glass bottled milk from Hatchland Farm in North Haverhill, NH to homes in the greater Portsmouth area. It wasn't long afterward that local chefs were demanding the same high quality products for their restaurants. People started to want more local foods, so the little milkman expanded the product line to include items such as fresh organic eggs, local fresh pressed apple cider, local fresh ground coffee, and local grade A maple syrup. Before long, The little milkman was one of the area's leading fresh dairy and specialty food distributors, serving the greater seacoast with four refrigerated delivery trucks.
There's a new milkman in town
In 2010, Kent sold the business to Amy Ferris and her expanded family. Amy had over 8 years of experience in perishable fresh juice and specialty foods, having been part of the family that successfully started and grew the Natural Juice company of CT to $1.6M in annual revenue. Having raised four girls and been active in the community for years, Amy decided it was time to re-enter the business world as the nest emptied. When you call our offices, don't be surprised if one of Amy's daughter's answer the phone Elizabeth, Meredith, Hannah or Abigail or if Uncle Roger or Uncle Ray is driving one of the trucks. If you visit you might even see cousin "chef Jeff", the family's own Sous-Chef de Cuisine and graduate of Cornell culinary institute, trying a new product in the kitchen. Coastal Creamery is all about family, so we pledge to provide the highest level of service delivering food that is good for you.... and your family too!
