Company Description Big Picture Farm is a goat dairy, creamery and farmstead confectionary located on a beautiful hillside in Townshend, Vermont. Our approximately 40 saanens, alpines and nubian goats live happy and healthy lives rotating through the rich pastures and leafy woodlands that characterize our hillside Vermont farm. We are animal welfare approved and the happiness of our goats and the land they graze is of the highest priority. Most of our milk is transformed into our award winning goat milk caramels which are sold to over 800 stores around the country. The rest of our milk goes into small batches of raw milk cheese and small batch chocolates and confections. In addition to our goats we keep 24 laying hens, several hives of bees, 3 hogs and tend an active flower & vegetable garden, and have a fledgling fruit orchard. Job Description We are looking for someone who is interested in the highest quality confections and candy to assist our master confectioner who trained under CMPC Vollkommer. While having worked in kitchens before might be helpful, it is not required as we can train the right person. This is a unique opportunity to work with our confectioner and learn the art of being a chocolatier as well as being involved in the production of our award winning caramels. Our confections are unique as we use our own milk as well as honey and eggs and syrup and all the local fruit we can find to create inspired and artfully presented confections. We are looking for someone to potentially start as soon as possible part time with full time work available this summer.
