Cheesemaker’s Apprentice

We are seeking a cheesemaking apprentice for 8-month commitment, ideally starting in April 2022. For details click here for more info.



We are always looking for folks who can help out at events like the Cow Parade, and in our classroom, and flower gardens. If you enjoy people, gardening, or spreading the word about local foods and would like to volunteer your time and talents to the farm, please email Volunteers should be 18 years of age or older.

Due to the nature of our work – making food – we do not use volunteers to work with our animals. Animals like the comfort and consistency of knowing the people around them. New people make them nervous, so we stick to a regular team for our production animals.
