September 17, 2019

September 17, 2019

Sweet & Salty Farm is looking for someone to join our team to help us produce our high-quality artisan cheeses and yogurt at our farm in Little Compton, Rhode Island. If you are a friendly, hardworking person with the ability to learn quickly and follow instructions, and don’t mind spending much of your time dishwashing, this job could be for you! This is a job in our dairy plant. Experience is a plus but not required. You will learn everything from our experienced cheesemakers. You will start by shadowing our cheesemakers, quickly moving on to working independently, and making cheese on your own by the end of the first year. In the second year, you will be knowledgeable enough to contribute to the development of new cheeses and recipes. From there, cheesemaking skills can continue to advance over a lifetime of learning and experimentation. We are here to help you explore as far as you want to go.

We are Sweet & Salty Farm, a small grazing dairy farm in Little Compton, Rhode Island. We make a variety of artisan cheeses and yogurt. We manage our land and animals with care and respect, without the use of GMO’s, pesticides, antibiotics, or other chemicals. We produce all of our cheeses and yogurt with the milk from our own Jersey cows.
