It’s really not a tour and you really don’t see them doing anything. You do watch a video and they are friendly and answer questions. Of course there are plenty of samples and things to buy, it’s just not a big deal..

Employees are very nice. Lots of samples to try including items you can't find in the stores. They no longer allow tours in the factory but the video was very informative. Bring a cooler so you can do some shopping! Not something I would go...More

Cabot makes the world’s best cheddar and this store let’s you sample all the varieties! Plus sample other products and buy a variety of cheeses, craft beer, wine and other Vermont products. I make sure to stop here every time I pass through Vermont

Fresh and delicious cheeses. Maple shaped Maple syrup hard candies are delicious. Definitely worth the trip but disappointing that the tour is no longer offered.

We drove here thinking we would take the creamery tour but upon arrival were told it was no longer available due to new state laws. Other than a small sampling table and gift store there’s not much to justify the tripMore

Stopped by the Cabot Factory in October 2018. We were amazed of all the cheese samples offered. It was also quite interesting to see all the variety of cheese flavors that we do not have available in our home state. No tours are offered, however...More
