Facts About Cheese & Dairy

Cheddar is arguably the world’s most popular cheese—and Vermont is the home of the World’s Best Cheddar.

Cabot Cheddar cheese varieties have been awarded Best in Class at national and international cheese competitions for more than twenty years running! So it probably goes without saying that we’re passionate about cheese. In fact, most of us can distinguish between mild and sharp Cheddar cheese with just one bite!

We also know how Cheddar cheese is made, how it’s best served, and most importantly, how to distinguish its sharpness. But for the farm families who own Cabot, it’s not just about great tasting cheese—making the World’s Best Cheddar, and other fine cheeses, is our livelihood. So, we also analyze cheese industry market trends and statistics—particularly as they pertain to small cheese making companies and naturally aged cheeses. Simply put, we’re cheese experts.

As a farmer-owned cooperative, Cabot works in partnership with the Vermont Dairy Industry, the Vermont Cheese Council, and state agencies including Agriculture and Tourism. And since we are a small state, we work closely with our friends and neighbors in related industries. So if you have a question we can’t answer, chances are we know someone who can!
