COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Consider Bardwell Farm is a small but nationally acclaimed, award-winning producer of raw milk cow and goat cheeses, located in a rural region in Southwestern Vermont.  Our farming practices are traditional, but our production facility operates under strict FSMA-compliant guidelines that require tight logistics and cooperation from all staff.

JOB DESCRIPTION

We’re looking for a systems-minded individual to learn how we track, grade, select and ship product, to learn the requirements and limitations of this process, and develop creative solutions that make us more organized and efficient.  We need a proactive individual who can take a sense of ownership over their role, combining a fresh set of eyes with a respect for learning how the whole business works. We want someone who knows their responsibilities while always seeing how to help the rest of the team.

We see this person growing into a full-time Operations Manager, taking on inside-sales support, local sales support, quality assurance, and pitching projects of their own.  Applicants should be passionate about food and sustainable agriculture, and eager to learn more about how a cheesemaking business runs, as there is a lot of room to grow within our nimble, but dynamic operation.

This role reports to the Creamery Director, but will also work closely with the Director of Sales & Marketing, as well as the Food Safety Manager.
