I Am allergic to the lactose in milk. So i buy your lactose free cheese. It is great. What other foods do you make or have that is lactose free? I get sick of eating the same things all the time. Thank you.

    Hi Melissa, so glad that you’re enjoying our lactose-free cheeses! Our naturally-aged cheddars are the only products we have that are lactose-free because it’s the slow, natural aging process that removes the lactose from our cheese. Our other products like butter, cream cheese, sour cream, yogurts are fresh, therefore they do contain lactose. Hope this helps! ~Rachael

    Hi Ingrid! Thanks for being such a Cabot fan! Our farmer owners are grateful for your support 🙂 Our coupon efforts are very limited because we are a farmer-owned cooperative and all of our profits go back to the farmers at the end of the year. However we occasionally send out emails with coupons, so make sure you’re signed up! https://www.cabotcheese.coop/newsletter-sign-up-form ~Rachael
