Working with Green Mountain Power (GMP), Blue Spruce Farm, now in operation for more than a half century, served as the pilot dairy farm for GMP’s “Cow Power” program.
By way of bio-digester, this process turns cow waste into energy, allowing the farm to provide 300+ local Vermont families with electricity.
Our farmers believe we don’t own the land—we borrow it, we tend it until we pass it on. If we take care of the land, it takes care of us. They’re proud to support local farmers and nurture the open landscape and rolling hills that make New England and New York so beautiful.
This is our home and caring for it is our farmers’ legacy. “You’ll taste all of this in any Cabot product—the experience, the commitment, the love. And you’ll never forget it.”
This award honors an outstanding dairy family from each of the six New England states each year.
Nominees are evaluated based on production and financial management, environmental practices, contributions to agriculture and the local community, and overall excellence in farm management practices.
