As it was early last century, Cabot is still a sleepy little farm town tucked into the rocky soil of Northern Vermont’s rolling hills. Located there is the Cabot Creamery, a dairy cooperative dedicated to creating world-class cheddars while supporting the hard-pressed independent farmers who supply their milk. Established as a cooperative in 1919, the dairy farmers actually own the company. Cabot’s best cheddar is called “Vintage Choice.” Each block of Vintage Choice is hand-selected by Cabot’s president. Aged undisturbed for 18 to 24 months, limited edition Vintage Choice is complex, opulent and full of nuances. After this long aging period, it takes on a full-bodied, rich, extra-sharp flavor. Cabot’s finest cheddar has a texture that is more compact and a bit drier than authentic English Cheddar.
