The @CabotCheese #CabotFit Team Takes over Narragansett, Rhode Island! #willrunforcheeseClick to Tweet

I love Rhode Island.

I do. It’s actually kind of weird because I am SUCH a city girl. However, something about this state is so incredibly charming. As you may remember, I was invited to Rhode Island to be on the Cabot Fit Team on behalf of Cabot Creamery Cooperative to enjoy an amazing race, meet one of the farmer families in the cooperative, explore Narragansett and so much more. Unfortunately, with horrible luck and timing, I was diagnosed with Strep Throat the day before the race and I was unable to run. However, I WAS able to participate in some really fun activities around the race and I am so excited to share them with you today!

I got to hang with the BEST girls all weekend! Seriously, Cabot couldn’t have chosen a better group!

About Cabot Cheese

The farm families that own Cabot Creamery Co-operative love what they do. And they’ve been doing it for a long time—every single day since 1919. Almost 100 years later, we’re proud of our thriving farms, strong communities, and happy, healthy cows that produce the rich, buttery milk that we use to make Cabot’s award-winning cheese and dairy products. We like to think those awards mean we’re doing something right. Of course, you’re a big part of this too. If you love eating our cheese as much as we love making it, then we’ll get to keep doing what we do for generations to come.

Farm Trip to Emma Acres

It’s been forever and a day since this city girl has been on a farm. I was SO excited because I remembered meeting one of the Cabot Farm Families at an event earlier this year and I was so impressed with their passion and hard work. We drove out to the farm and were immediately greeted with these gorgeous cows.

The farm family we met on Emma Acres were SO amazing. I could listen to them talk all day. I found farming to be entirely fascinating considering that I am *never* around farmers. The dynamic between the family members and how they ALL share the load of running a successful farm was truly awe-inspiring.

We learned all about the milking process, and how careful they are while handling the cattle. The farmers all live their own lives, with their own respective professions, but they also put in hours upon hours of work to make sure that people like you and me have decent milk and cheese to eat everyday. It is such an experience to see how your food is made and the people behind it. We got a full tour of the farm and I was so happy I was able to participate.

Tour Of Narragansett

Right after we took a tour of Narragansett via trolley. It was the most charming tour EVER. We learned all about the breath taking properties and even some juicy gossip about the original owners of the properties. The town is gorgeous from the outside, but when you learn the history behind all of it, it makes you fall in love with the town even more.

It is also a really popular wedding town. We were able to visit the Narragansett Towers which had incredible architecture and a view of the ocean. Who wouldn’t want to get married here?!

Cabot Cheese Tasting

After the ladies completed the Ocean Road 10k, we met up to attend an awesome cheese pairing at the Druidsdream, a stunning property that had been built in 1884.

We got to try all of the amazing cheeses with delicious pairings. Some were wine, beer, IPAs, and cider. The pairings really are about your own individual taste buds–however, I pretty much loved everything with the apple cider!

We tried so many flavors of cheese including Curdles, Vermont Sharp, Vermont Seriously Sharp, Artisan Reserve Cheddar Cheese, and my absolute favorite the Alpine Lace which is is just the most mouth watering cheese I’ve ever tasted. I will be stalking my speciality cheese section at my grocery store for this one because I think this may be the new secret for my famous mac and cheese!

We also got to explore the property which was just out of this world. Hammocks, ponds, trails, beautiful greenery, you name it! It was gorgeous.

We ended the trip with an amazing dinner and it was such a pleasure to spend time with these ladies on the Cabot Fit Team while getting to know all about the awesome families and products that are from Cabot Cheese!

Have you ever been to Rhode Island? When was the last time you were on a farm?

I love so much about this because I have been to Narragansett pretty much every summer (sometimes multiple times) for about my entire life! I have eaten at the Coast Guard A LOT and it never disappoints!! I cannot believe you were so close…yet so far. And how about my woman Sandra? Is she great or what? So sorry you were sick and unable to race but you now know stress was a big factor there so you got the rest you needed!! Win/win!

That hammock would not fit me lol I would fall asap. Loving the spread of cheese! The cows remind me of when I had to milk them when I visited my grandma during the summers

I don’t believe I’ve ever been to Rhode Island which is said because I don’t think it should be too bad of a drive from Jersey. Though I know it’s comedy, the show Family Guy definitely makes me want to visit.
