Assistant Cheesemaker Chaseholm Farm Creamery

  • Date Posted August 29, 2016
  • Location Pine Plains, NY
  • Category Culinary / Production
  • Job type Full-Time
Company description
Chaseholm Farm Creamery is an award winning cheesemaking company located on Chaseholm Farm; a grass-based dairy farm nestled on a 350-acre patchwork of pastures, crop land, woods and waterways. Chaseholm Farm and Creamery continue today as a sibling effort in agriculture; Sarah Chase manages the grazing and farm lands, as well as a motley crew of Holsteins, Jerseys and a few Brown Swiss, while Rory Chase turns that milk into delicious Farmstead cheeses at the Creamery. The Creamery consists of a team of 5 full and part-time employees, producing a range of Raw and Pasteurized Milk cheeses.  Our relationship to the land is built on principles of sustainable agriculture; we believe the quality of our milk is deeply related to the quality of our soils and grasslands and the life they support. Creating farmstead cheeses gives us a chance to see our product from pasture grass to Camembert, our attention guiding it all the way. We are here to continue our family farm and a tradition of agriculture in our region while making foods we all can enjoy.
