Cheese Lover Intern


Be part of the Pennsylvania Cheese Renaissance
Clarion River Organics works with five Western Pennsylvania dairy farmers who make farmstead dairy products.  We sell their products and tell their stories at regional farm markets, and distribute cheese shares all over Western Pennsylvania.


Work
We are seeking an intern to help us take this to the next level.  The position involves: managing the cheese stand at farmers’ markets; communicating feedback to farmers about cheese quality; helping plan and assemble weekly cheese shares; and, using social media to communicate with our customers. We would like the intern to help us test the viability of an ice cream business.

The internship will run from June through October, with some flexibility.

Compensation
Commensurate with experience

Other opportunities and benefits
Opportunities to learn about cheese making and milk production with the farmers exist. Specifically with Riverview Dairy an amish goat and sheep milk farm producing hard and soft cheeses and yogurt, and with Pasture Maid Creamery making hard cow milk cheese and bottling milk. One of the farms is aging wheels in a cave with opportunities to learn about caring for cheese and the art of affinage. Use of the facilities for custom production and aging will be available to the intern.
