Family owned and operated sock company awarded title for second year

Northfield, VT (April 18, 2019) – The Green Mountain state will soon become synonymous with socks, along with cheese or ice cream, as Darn Tough Vermont is again recognized by the Vermont Business Magazine (VBM) as a recipient of a 2019 Best of Business Award. Located in the Sock Capital of the World, Northfield, Vermont, Darn Tough was nominated and chosen by the local business community and readership base of VBM as this year’s “Best Vermont Made Product.”

“For many, the Vermont-made label communicates ‘craftsmanship’, ‘highest quality’, and ‘reliability’, so being identified as the Best Vermont Made Product for the second year is a great distinction. As a standard, it takes a great deal to impress Vermonters and when your neighbors recognize your work, it means more than a lot. It’s everything.” said President and CEO Ric Cabot.

Due in large part to the easy access to some of the country’s ultimate testing grounds, Darn Tough has been designing the best outdoor, performance sock for a multitude of activities from their mill in Northfield, Vermont. With the ability to oversee the entire knitting process under one roof, Darn Tough’s pursuit for perfection means every sock is inspected and scrutinized by a dozen hands before leaving for the retailer shelves.

This is the third year that VBM has surveyed its readers to find the Best of the Best companies in Vermont and Darn Tough Vermont joins many prestigious companies who are being recognized as the ‘go-to’ list in the Green Mountain state for everything from banking to colleges.
