It Started with a Commitment to Quality


Cabot farmers have always believed that delicious products are the reward of a job well done. And that by working together, we can dream bigger, achieve more, and build a stronger tomorrow for future generations.

"Every decision we make, everything we do, it really starts and ends with our cows. That's what a dairy farm is. Dairy cows are amazingly wonderful animals.”
