Cabot Farmers Visit New York City

Cabot Farmers Meet NYC Cheddar Fans

What happens when some of the 1,200 farmers who own Cabot come to New York City - their biggest market - to thank all the people who buy the 'World's Best' Cheddar? 

It becomes a veritable love-fest. Cabot farmers were thrilled to meet their fans and customers. New York cheese lovers were thrilled to get to know our dairy farm families and hear their stories.

Cabot farmers from New England and upstate New York wanted to personally thank the many New Yorkers who buy Cabot.

So 75 farmers from the Cabot Creamery Cooperative donned their iconic red plaid jackets and trekked to the big city. They stood on street corners and in grocery stores, handing out cheese as a way of saying "thanks for the support." These Random Acts of Cheddar were greeted with surprise and delight - not an easy thing to do in New York City!
