Affinage Supervisor

A wise man once said, “Affinage does for cheeses what great coaching does for athletes.” We couldn’t agree more and we’re looking for a special someone...a curd nerd you might say. If waking-up each day to coach newly-formed wheels of cheese into Cypress Grove’s award-winning Humboldt Fog sounds like a dream, please read on.

You’ll turn cheese, tweak humidity levels, and change temperatures like you’re being paid for it. The amazing thing is, you actually will be paid for it! I know...this keeps getting better doesn’t it? You’ll find yourself talking to cheese and it might even talk back using cool words like “proteolysis”. You may not have known what that word meant, but you checked it out because you know that joining the dream team of American cheese requires a proactive mindset and fanatical attention to detail.

Thank you for your interest in becoming Cypress Grove’s Curd Nerd (Affinage Team Member)! Please learn more about this opportunity and our benefits package below:
