Cabot Cheese in Cabot Vermont

Visiting the main Cabot Cheese Visitor Center and taking a tour wasn't on our agenda for Vermont originally.  It just wasn't on our radar.  We found a flyer for it though and realized that we had to stop by!

For pocket change (3 bucks) you get to see a film about Cabot, and you are able to watch cheese being made.  AND, at the end of the tour, you can sample a whole lot of cheese!

We had a great tour guide on our very small tour.  She seemed to know all about the cheese making process and the coop itself.

Unfortunately, photos aren't allowed in the production area, but it was easy to see that they are obsessive about keeping everything clean.  They were making cheese while we were there and that was fun to watch.

Over 1,000 farms are part of Cabot, and each farm, no matter how big, has a vote in how things are done.  Its pretty cool that so many farmers pull their resources here.
