We are in need of three cheesemakers for our Creamery. We are a family owned and operated business, as you have read from the blogs, and all the milk that is used to make our cheese comes from our very own cows. We are located in Perry, New York. We are one of the very rare pasture-to-plate companies, in which we will truly own and manage this product from the ground up. We are pretty proud of what we have to offer, and we know that we would be a great company for you to work for. We are very transparent about everything in our business and you would get to see the farming operation and meet the cows. cowsonpasture2You could be the feature of our next blog!
