I was first introduced to Cabot cheese by my dad. See, he likes sharp cheddar. I mean really sharp cheddar. And until he found Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar, he had never had one that really satisfied his sharp taste. It has been a staple in my parents' house for years, and quickly became one in my house once my dad (AKA Pa Pa) shared with Alex. In fact, it's Alex's favorite cheese too, and since he was just little he and Pa Pa have been Cabot fiends. So much so he refers to it as "Pa Pa Cheese". And I'm fully convinced at his high school graduation party Alex will ask me to serve Pa Pa Cheese!
~But let me allow Cabot to tell you more about themselves~
Cabot Creamery Cooperative has been in continuous operation in Vermont for almost 100 years. Since 1919, when 94 farmers founded Cabot, contributing $5 per cow plus a cord of wood each. For the farm families who own Cabot today, the family commitment comes from the 1,200 farmers located throughout New England and New York.
Over the years, Cabot has won every taste award for cheddar cheese, including "World's Best Cheddar" three times at the 22nd, 27th and 29th Biennial Cheese Championship.
Their mix of Jerseys and Holstein cows yields higher butterfat content and more milk solids than most of their competitors. Plus, thanks to a clean environment New England milk is considered among the finest and freshest in the world. What does this mean for cheese? Well, it adds up to a pure, rich base for Cabot dairy products and cheese.
Not to mention their cheese is crafted with no additives or preservatives; and is naturally aged from 2 to 36 months. So it's cheese that tastes good that you can feel good about giving your family.
With flavors from Extra Sharp to Pepper Jack to Garlic & Herb plus many many more, Cabot has something for everyone. So the next time you are in the cheese case looking for a flavorful cheese to take home, look for the Cabot name! "Where small is beautiful....and so much better!"
