- Date Posted February 25, 2024
- Location Lawrenceville, NJ
- Category Agriculture / Culinary
- Job type Part-Time
Situated on land owned by the Hamill family for more than a century, Cherry Grove Farm was started in 2002 as a direct outgrowth of the Hamills’ passion for the land, their community, and the idea of responsible, sustainable food production.
Cherry Grove Farm uses the farmstead cheesemaking model, meaning that we do everything on site, from raising and milking the cows to making and aging our cheese. By keeping the process in-house, we ensure we use the best quality milk from humanely treated cattle who graze through the farm’s 200 plus acres of verdant pasture.
Within a decade of its founding, Cherry Grove established itself as one of the region’s premier cheesemakers, garnering numerous national awards that reflect the care taken in every step of the cheesemaking process.
We are committed to practicing regenerative agriculture, regularly rotating where our animals are grazing so that both they and the land remain as healthy as possible. The result is cheese, meat, and eggs that are sustainably produced and delicious — food you can feel good about eating.
We care deeply for the well-being of our land, our animals, and the community we serve — care you can taste in each bite.
The position would be for 2-3 days between markets. We are looking for people who are organized, have the ability to work independently and are adaptable.

This is a great opportunity to work first-hand within our local food system with our quality farmstead products - cheese, pasture raised meats, eggs and honey.
