Because we believe that strong, healthy, and unified communities make for a better world.
June 21st, 2014
The Grand Finale of the 2014 Cabot Community Tour will be held at Adventures NYC. This outdoor experience for the whole family, celebrating fitness, family, and the great outdoors will open at the Bandshell in beautiful Central Park and will include activities throughout Manhattan.
This fun-filled, action-packed event – presented by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation and Backpacker Magazine – is celebrating its 10th year of bringing adventure and excitement into the heart of the Big Apple.
This unique day of exercise, entertainment, and fun is free to the public and features activities for everyone from novice outdoorsmen to hardcore enthusiasts. There is something for everyone, so come by and be prepared to stay for the day.
Cabot will be in Central Park, representing our 1200 farm family owners and sampling several varieties of The World’s Best Cheddar. Stop by for a tasty treat as you try your hand at activities like standup paddle boarding, hiking, biking, adventure racing, and many, many more.
There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ride the Cabot Cow Bike as we Pedal Out Homelessness. For every mile tracked, there will be a monetary donation made to Habitat of Humanity NYC. Bring your appetites and get ready to sample the World’s Best Cheddar along with Ben and Jerry’s ice cream – what an awesome combo!
You can also join Cabot, along with Habitat NYC, for an interactive, hands-on demonstration build. We’ll be making benches that will be donated to the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to go into area parks for all to enjoy.
We look forward to meeting you at Adventures NYC and the Grand Finale of the Community Tour!
About the Tour
The 2014 Cabot Community Tour is a celebration of the work of cooperatives, service organizations, and volunteers and honors our 1200 farm family owners’ three most cherished principals: Cooperatives, Community and Volunteerism. From May 17 through June 21, the Tour is following a route along the East Coast Greenway, stopping at cities and towns along the way, meeting with organizations and their volunteers and honoring the work that goes into making a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable community.
Supporting the tour is the Farmers’ Gratitude Grille, a traveling kitchen conceived by the farm families who own Cabot. Cabot chefs prepare healthy, delicious meals as a way of thanking those who generously give their time to others in their communities.
Our farmers understand the value of volunteerism, and how donating time and services make communities stronger and healthier. Interested volunteers who can’t join us on the Cabot Community Tour can still get involved by visiting the Reward Volunteers website, and downloading the free Reward Volunteers iPhone app, or using the online web widget. Reward Volunteers is a free, easy way to track the time you spend volunteering in your community – and to earn rewards for yourself and the organizations you serve.
The 2014 Community Tour was created by Cabot Creamery Cooperative and its fellow sponsors and supporters, including: AARP Create the Good, East Coast Greenway, HandsOn Network, Marriott, National Life Group, and local affiliates of Habitat for Humanity.
