Join Our Team - Become a Grover

Well over twenty years ago, Cypress Grove Founder Mary Keehn had a dream of a soft-ripened goat cheese that eventually became an award-winning, iconic cheese. It fueled the growth of one of the most popular creameries in the country. Keeping this dream alive through the decades requires the continued recruitment and training of what has become America’s dream team of cheese.

Cypress Grove is currently undergoing a transformation in the quest to be the preeminent US goat cheese producer. The creamery facilities have undergone a significant expansion, requiring an increasing number of curd nerds to extend our cheesy empire. As well, our goat dairy herd’s size swells by the day, necessitating additional dedicated agricultural specialists to care for our cherished caprine employees.

Cypress Grove Chevre is looking for truly awesome people to help achieve its goal of ensuring that even more delicious cheese is enjoyed. If you have a flair for innovation and creativity, a proactive mindset, and a fanatical attention to detail, please read on.

We are based in the wilds of Arcata, CA. Our facilities are located about 5.5 hours north of San Francisco in Arcata, California. Unless otherwise noted, all positions require that you live in (or relocate near) our amazing community.

We're probably wondering if Cypress Grove Chevre, Inc. participates in E-Verify. Yes we do. Now that we have the formalities behind us, please continue to our current openings.
