“Say Cheese!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

For $2pp they have a brief presentation on the history of the Cabot Creamery coop followed by a fairly rapid tour of the creamery itself. The whole thing takes maybe 30 minutes before you are lead into the gift shop to try all of their cheese. We had an opportunity to taste sample of each cheese and we took full advantage! Ended up buying a few blocks as well as their Greek yogurt.

Next time I'd skip the tour and go straight to the cheese tasting!

“Best Family Destination in Vermont”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Fabulous tour of the cheese factory and a movie on the history, and lots of cheeses and things to sample, and gifts to buy...great Vermontiana. This place will show the kids the essence of Vermont.

“Loved the tour!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

This affordable tour took us into the cheese factory. It was quick and fun. The store was filled with free samples of all the various cheeses and the only thing missing was wine. I walked away with an appreciation of the owners, the process and the product.

“Cheese Making & Curds and Whey - Very Informative!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We went on a great tour of the Cabot Creamery and learned a lot! It takes about 10 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of cheese. They separate the curds from the whey, sell the whey and make the cheese from the curds.

The tour costs $2 per person and is very informative. They really care about the local farmers that supply the milk and quality of the product is #1. Short video, then a tour of the factory.

Great little outlet store to buy numerous cheese products, maple syrup items, clothing and souvenirs. There are all kinds of samples of different cheeses, dips and butter to try as well.

This was a very interesting visit to see the origin of the industry and how everything is made. The staff was very nice and answered all the questions thoroughly and informatively. A great place to visit... especially if you have a love for cheese!
