Good Place to visit. Should have called ahead.

Went here as part of an anniversary weekend with my wife. The staff was pleasant, however they were not doing tours of the plant.

The tour is interesting, though you don't see much. It is a working factory. The movie at the beginning of the tour is interesting and where you learn the most. Otherwise, the tour is just walking down a long factory hallway and looking at several stages of cheese in production. It's not all that elaborate. The tasting bar in the... More

We visited on a cold, snowy afternoon. They weren't running the actual tour but we watched the short film - we thought it was interesting- and enjoyed the staff, samples and nice gift shop with fun Vermont items.

A little history lesson in the making of Cabot Cheese. Samples were plentiful and I learned the cheddar cheese has no lactose! All and all a fun quick tour of cheesemaking.

Our ski day was ruined by rain so we decided to go to the Cabot visitors center. It was a cool experience and I had no idea how much goes into the cheese making process. They also give a you a neat history of Cabot Farms. The best part is the free cheese samples!! There is a little store where... More

We've loved Cabot cheeses for years and when we were in the area we knew we had to sop by for a tour. The tour was fantastic and seeing the care they put into their product made us want to buy more. Please show up hungry - they have a great sample bar in the gift shop.

I had to come here. The cheese making tour is 3 dollars per person but it was so worth it. I loved seeing the process. You can try free samples of the cheeses and buy them in the shop. It was a great quick experience, the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable! Loved it. A cheese lovers must

This was our second visit. We enjoyed the tour. It was very interesting and educational. The store had some great deals on great cheese. The weather was not great so we did look around the grounds nuch.

Nice visitor center with an available not for free 15 min tour. Numerous cheese samples available to try which was interesting. They will provide ice packets if warm outside to keep cheese cold. Interesting history of Cabot farmers. And I did not know Cabot cheese is lactose free !
