After forty years living away from his childhood home of New England, Lloyd has recently returned to apply his hard-earned skills to the operations of The Old Creamery Cooperative of Cummington, Massachusetts. With twenty years experience managing small businesses in the challenging commercial landscape of New Orleans, Lloyd’s approach to operational management might best be described as holistic. From historic music venues like Preservation Hall, to iconic family-run taverns like Molly’s At The Market, to the interactive musical cabaret gameshow of The New Orleans Bingo! Show, Miller’s track record of successfully helping organically grown enterprises achieve success through good sense and better organization led to the execution of his own successful business from 2014 through 2020. Today, Lloyd resides with his family on the side of a steep hill in North Adams where his wife, two daughters, and assorted pets are greatly enjoying life above sea level.

Laura Anne Segatti
Center Store Lead
Laura Anne moved back to Massachusetts early in 2022. She was excited to get a job at the Creamery and to be back in the Hilltowns. When she’s not working she is usually at home: in the garden, mixing something up in the kitchen, reading, or snuggling with her cats.
Prepared Foods Lead
Noel has worked at the Creamery for 23 years and has seen it all. She stays for the love of the community and the dear friends and family she works with. She calls it the island of misfit toys. When not in the kitchen whipping out yummy, beautiful food, she is probably hanging out with her awesome kid. She also enjoys gardening, crocheting, and long hikes through the wood
Sophia has been working at the Creamery for over four years. She’s lived in the Hilltowns all her life and has been coming to the Creamery for as long as she can remember. When she’s not working, she’s probably reading or taking care of her animals.
Melanie has been working in pastry for 13 years and loves creating delicious desserts for people to enjoy. She loves being part of the Hilltown community and meeting new people at the Creamery. Baking is her passion and she tries her best to share it with everyone.
Payroll & Personnel Admin
Corinne Sharkey (“Renie”) has worked at the Creamery before, from 2013 – 2018, doing membership, deposits-prep, and label-making for just a few hours each week. Now, she does light bookkeeping. At home, you’ll find her outside stacking wood, moving rocks, or plucking undesired plants from among her rock-gardens. The spiral garden is becoming a clover haven that features other semi-wild plants like yarrow, plantains, St. John’s wort, and cow’s vetch. She says that in the wintertime, she does light carpentry and even some sewing.
I have been working for the Creamery for two years. I started out as a dishwasher then moved to working in the deli. Now I’m a Shift Leader and continue working in the deli. I am a resident of Cummington, Ma.
