Cricket Creek is seeking a part-time Creamery Assistant – this person works 3-4 days per week assisting with the production of our award-winning cheeses. Primary responsibilities will include dishwashing, other cleaning, affinage (the care of our cheeses in their aging rooms) and filling milk bottles for our farm store.
Hours may be somewhat flexible, with more work in the summer, early fall and winter holiday seasons.
Compensation is $12 per hour + 20% discount on farm fresh raw milk and cheese, farm raised grass fed beef, veal and pork.
This work is physically demanding and requires precision and fanatical cleanliness. The Creamery Assistant is on his or her feet all day, sometimes in a warm production room, and sometimes in chilly aging rooms. There will be opportunities to learn about all aspects of the cheesemaking process, but keeping a clean and sanitary environment is the first priority of this job. The Creamery Assistant must be reliable, efficient, and able to work independently among awesome, dedicated and hardworking people in a fast paced environment.
