Cabot Creamery was one of the first family farm cooperatives in Vermont, and today they are widely known for making exceptional American-style block Cheddar. Kempton Family Farm in Peacham, VT has been selected as the sole source for Clothbound, and Cabot crafts this cheese the old-world way - one vat at a time.
Once unmolded from their shaping hoops, the infant wheels are individually wrapped with muslin and brushed with lard before they undergo a ten to fourteen month maturation period. The extra care involved in curing a clothbound cheese requires a customized aging environment, with proper temperature, humidity, and airflow. The cheddar vaults at the Cellars at Jasper Hill are majestic and awe-inspiring - Cabot Clothbound is truly a monumental undertaking. A team of affineurs practice a constant cycle of care for Clothbound and the 34 pound wheels are tested, tasted, and monitored for quality during their entire life cycle. .
