From Orne Meadows with Tradition

Visit our Specialty Cheese Island and meet a newcomer: Cabot Creamery’s Orne Meadows Cheddar, a “Founder’s Collection” limited edition cheese based on the original recipes created by Cabot’s founding farmers in 1919. Savor the nostalgia and find yourself transported to the fresh rolling hills of early 20th century Vermont. Plus, it’s now on sale for only $8.99 per lb, regularly $11.99 per lb! Sale runs through May 30th, 2016.

Try Orne Meadows for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner or dessert. This retro artisan cheese is affordable, nutritious, and naturally gluten and lactose free.

Cabot Creamery is a cooperative business owned by over 1,200 Dairy Farm Families throughout Upstate New York and New England. Newly certified as a B Corporation, Cabot Creamery works to improve economic transparency, environmental stewardship and sustainability. In addition to their Orne Meadows Cheddar, the Co-op also carries Cabot’s Seriously Sharp Cheddar and 75% Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar – each for $5.99 per 10 oz. bar.
