About Our Farmer Co-op Every morning, every single day, Cabot farmers get up and get to work. Every morning since 1919, when 94 families from Cabot, Vermont, formed a co-operative to ensure their livelihood. They knew that they were stronger together than they were apart. Today, Cabot’s 1,100 farm families throughout New England and New York State still have each other’s back. As do the 1,000+ people we employ across four plants in three states. Supporting each other is what the co-operative movement is all about.
And all of us believe that hard work and a tireless dedication to quality make our products stand apart…
The truth is, we only know one way to live this life: give everything we have to it. Those families back in 1919, they’d tell you the same thing: we do it for our kids, our cows, our land, our communities. For the pride we take in producing the best cheese and finest dairy products in the world. For the love of it all.
That’s our legacy. That’s what the history of the co-operative means to us.
But all you really need to know about Cabot history can be tasted today, right now, in every slice of cheddar, side of sour cream, and spoonful of yogurt. That taste! That’s what comes from doing it the right way, every day, since 1919.
