In 1919, a group of 94 pioneering dairy farmers in northern Vermont founded Cabot Creamery Cooperative. In the hundred years since, the Cabot Co-op has grown to more than 1,100 farm-family owners across New England and New York State.
Today’s owner-operators remain dedicated to producing cheddar and other fine cheeses in the cheese-maker’s time-honored way – with no additives, no preservatives, and in accordance with the highest standards of dairy quality. That’s why Cabot Cheddars have won every major national and international award for taste, including “The World’s Best Cheddar.”
Now a national brand, the Cabot Creamery is a shining example of the cooperative way of doing business: caring for the land, for its farm family members, and for the local communities where we live and work. Our success is measured by more than profits; it’s also measured by our commitment to social and environmental responsibility. Cabot’s community outreach and educational programs – which include working with business and consumer groups from the National Cooperative Business Association, the Consumer Federation of America, and the Girl Scouts of America – are a source of Co-op pride that have earned us even more awards.
The Cabot Visitors Center, at Cabot Village in Cabot, VT, is stocked with all of Cabot’s fine products, from our classic cheeses (available for sampling), sour cream, yogurts, and dips, to our limited-edition artisanal cheddars. Visitors can also watch a video tour of our cheesemaking facility and learn more about the history of the Co-op.
Our Farmers’ Store, located along Vermont’s Route 100 in the Stowe/Waterbury area, offers a fantastic selection of Cabot’s award-winning cheeses (available for sampling), along with other Vermont specialty foods, microbrews, hard ciders, and wines.
The Cabot Quechee Store is located in the Quechee Gorge Village on Vermont’s Route 4, just off Interstate-89, and also features cheese sampling. Quechee Gorge Village is one of Vermont’s premier shopping attractions, known for its many antique stores and other Vermont-based businesses.
Our newest store is the Cabot Farmers’ Annex, on Commercial Street in Portland, Maine. You’ll find it nestled among the historic buildings of Portland’s Old Port shopping district, and brimming with a selection of fine Cabot products and Maine crafts.
And for cheese lovers everywhere, Cabot products can be found in retail dairy departments and specialty cheese stores across the U.S.

The finest cheddar cheese in the world is proudly made by Cabot Creamery in Vermont. Using only pure, fresh milk provided by our farmer-owners, all of Cabot’s cheddars are made naturally, without chemicals or preservatives. We let time, gentle care and Mother Nature nurture our cheddars until they are aged for our specific flavor profiles.
