Cabot Creamery understands "Sustainability" to be "living within our
means and ensuring the means to live." Their fundamental approach to stewardship and social impact is based on the triple bottom line of social, environmental and economic impacts. Our approach is called context-based sustainability. The scope of our sustainability efforts runs from farm-to-fork, but we realize our greatest influence is from the cow to the
creamery and from the creamery to our customers. Our cooperative's typical member/owner is a multi-generational dairy farm family, a trend we endeavor to extend for a long time to come. VMBA shares Cabot's commitment to protecting our beautiful landscape and a desire to live (and recreate) sustainably.
