Cabot Creamery gears up for Open Farm Sunday
The Cabot Creamery Cooperative has scheduled an Open Farm Sunday for Nov. 1 as part of an effort to alert locavores that its cheddar cheese and other dairy products have strong New England roots.
"Visitors will experience the family traditions and local flavors that are Cabot Cheese when Cabot Creamery Cooperative farmers 'open their barn doors' for Open Farm Sunday," the cooperative of 1,200 farmers from New England and Upstate New York said in a press release. "Guests of all ages are invited to meet the farmers, see their cows, join in barnyard activities, and, of course, sample Cabot Cheddar Cheese!"

According to Cabot, this versatile offering can be topped with grilled sausages, a favorite pasta sauce, or a hearty stew and makes a swell change from such ho-hum side dishes as potatoes or rice. Added benefit: Cheddar polenta's "full-bodied flavor pairs perfectly with a hearty ale or sturdy wine," Cabot says. (Globe Staff)
