NORTH SMITHFIELD, RI- A well–known North Smithfield dairy farm and bakery turns 100 this year. It's known it for its milk and cakes.

Wright's Dairy Farm started back in 1914, by George Wright, and ever since it's been producing fresh locally-made milk for its customers.

Over the years, the store has made changes and added new products like ice cream.

"We survive on our local customers and we certainly believe in supporting other local businesses. I mean, when you're supporting a local business, so much of the money spent at the local store stays in the economy," said co-owner, Elizabeth Dulude.

Skim milk and éclairs are the top selling items. Store owners say they don't know the exact date they were founded, but they are planning a 100th celebration sometime this year to thank the community.
