There are no shortcuts on a farm. The cows need care seven days a week, 365 days a year. Vacations aren’t always an option and family time on holidays is often scheduled in between chores, but we’re Cabot dairy farmers, and we choose to get up and farm each day because we love it.
We love how everything is connected. We take care of the land and so the grass grows green and tall, which makes the cows happy—and happy cows produce rich, buttery milk, which makes for cheese and other products that win awards year after year. And the more people love our Cabot family of products, then the more our dairy farms will thrive—today and into the future.
That sense of connection, of generational purpose, is what led to the formation of the Cabot co-operative in the first place. Cabot’s 800 co-op farms all want the same thing: to provide for our families, give back to our communities, and produce the best cheese in the world.
