Fertilizing Our Land

Cabot Creamery makes resource conservation a priority and has a long history of fertilizing land with water that was previously used at our manufacturing plant.

With the help of Vermont’s Agency of Natural Resources, Cabot has been able to successfully re-use their water in a beneficial way. This practice serves as irrigation for the farmland and limits the amount of fertilizer farmers need to apply to their field.
