Cabot Creamery Cooperative, founded by 94 pioneering dairy farm families in northern Vermont in 1919, has now grown to more than 1,200 farm-family owners throughout New England. Those owner-operators are still dedicated to producing cheddar in the traditional cheese-maker’s time-honored way – with no additives or preservatives – and according to the highest standards of dairy quality. As a result, Cabot Cheddars have won every major national and international award for taste since that founding in 1919, including “The World’s Best Cheddar.”
Now a national brand, Cabot Creamery is an exemplar of the cooperative way of doing business – caring about the land, its owners’ farms and the communities in which they live. Cabot’s bottom line measures not only profits, but social responsibility and environmental sustainability. And Cabot community programs and educational programs – working with business and consumer groups from the National Cooperative Business Association and the Consumer Federation of America to the Girl Scouts of America – have won Cabot even more awards.
The Cabot Visitors Center, at Cabot Village in Cabot, VT, offers tours of the cheese making plant, as well as samples of “The World’s Best Cheddar” in its retail store the Cabot Waterbury Annex Store, along Vermont Route 100 in the Stowe/Waterbury area, offers samples of hard-to-find and artisanal cheeses from many Vermont cheese makers, including Cabot Creamery’s own national and international-award-winning cheddar or, stop by our newest store in Quechee Vermont for a sampling of our cheddars, and other fine Vermont products. Nestled among the beautiful Victorian brick buildings of Portland’s Old Port shopping district, you’ll find an authentic taste of New England at the Cabot Farmers’ Annex. As you stroll along Commercial Street, taking in the view of Casco Bay, be sure to stop in at the Annex to shop a fine selection of Cabot products and Maine crafts. And, of course, Cabot cheeses can be found in retail dairy departments and specialty cheese stores all across the country.
