    Plaw Hatch Farm Dairy produces bottled raw milk, cream, kefir and a range of yoghurts and cheeses, all made with biodynamic milk from our own herd. We are a small dairy, processing approximately 120,000 litres of milk per year using very hands-on, artisan techniques to serve a primarily very local community.

    We are looking for an enthusiastic and responsible person to help with making these products and all associated work, including packaging, cleaning, fulfilling customer orders, caring for and turning maturing cheeses and keeping the farm shop stocked. There may also be a possibility of taking more responsibility and being involved in admin, writing HACCPs, stock control and taking samples for analysis. We are also part of a farm community and, as such, must be willing to get involved wherever needed on occasion, be it writing an article for the farm newsletter, making a pudding for communal lunches or helping out on other areas of the farm.

    Applicants must be passionate about producing good, healthy food, and dairy in particular. An ability to work well with others and independently is essential. Training is provided but experience working with cheese or in a dairy or other food processing context is desirable. As the nature of the work can be physically demanding, applicants must be physically capable. High standards of hygiene are expected and a hygiene certificate would be an advantage.

    The position is full time and may involve early morning starts or weekend work on occasion. Salary will be discussed at interview. Accommodation may be possible on the farm. To apply please send a letter of interest, CV and references to [email protected] or to Tali Eichner, Old Plaw Hatch Farm Ltd, Plaw Hatch Lane, Sharpthorne, West Sussex, RH19 4JL by 23rd May 2013.
