internships are a wonderful 3 month introductory opportunity to working
on a farmstead creamery business. Tasks include milking sheep, feeding
animals, affinage, making fresh cheese, packing cheese for orders,
cleaning dishes and maintenance projects.
apprenticeships are a full education and immersion into the operation of
a farmstead creamery. No previous experience is required, but an eager
attitude for learning and appreciation for artisan cheese is a must. The
training and exposure builds in complexity, starting with milking,
animal care, affinage, cleaning dishes, maintenance projects and fresh
cheese making techniques. It then builds towards learning our farm’s full
range of 8-10 cheeses (which vary among hard cheeses, aged blues, and
young semi-soft small wheels).
