cheese making and dairy farm apprenticeship
Cricket Creek Farm is a small grass-based dairy in Western Massachusetts. We make several award-winning artisanal farmstead cheeses from the milk of our herd of Brown Swiss and Jersey cows (currently milking about 25 cows). We are looking for a dynamic team of 4-5 apprentices to join us for 2013-14. We have two types of apprenticeship opportunities here, on the farm and in the creamery.
Both farm and creamery apprentices attend farmers markets, help with the CSA and general farm maintenance and upkeep. For both the farm and creamery apprenticeship, experience is preferred. For more information about our apprenticeship and how to apply, check out our website at www.cricketcreekfarm.com. thanks + looking forward to meeting you!
