Tour Where it All Began

Cabot Farmers' Annex


At our Visitors Center in Cabot, where we began in 1919, you can join a factory tour, watch talented cheese makers create our award-winning cheddars, and enjoy plenty of samples — all in one of the most scenic spots in America. Our visitors say the drive alone is worth it!

While you're here:

  • Take our guided tour and view our award-winning cheese as it's being made. You'll learn a ton about cheese making, and Cabot's history — not to mention a bit about Vermont agriculture.
  • Following the tour, you're invited to nibble our many varieties of cheeses, including the World's Best Cheddar and Best Flavored Cheddar.
  • Check out the Weekly Specials and also the Cabot Activity Book. Kids, and a lot of adults, love our happy Cabot Critters!

Fan reviews:

"I was in New England a couple of weeks ago and took your tour. It was very informative. I didn't realize until then that New England was so heavy into diary — I though it was WI. Your tour was excellent — and so was the tasting!! Thank you!"
— Wanda M., High Point ND

"Hi, my wife and I visited your factory last weekend while we were in Vermont. Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed the tasting of your products and the tour. Your staff were all terrific and we had a wonderful time. Thanks to all."
— Bryan N., Berlin, CT

"Went on the factory tour yesterday. One of the best tours we have ever taken. Thanks for a great tour!"
— Barry S., Highland, MI
