PRODUCTION ASSISTANT
Part-time: 20 hours a week
Location: Columbus, NC
Pay: DOE

We are looking for someone to help in all area’s of production. One day you may be scooping curd and packing cheese molds, the next making pickled watermelon rind, and the next crushing apples and making cider. We need someone who can help with managing our cider batches, transfer batches when needed, prep kegs for distribution and maintain related paperwork. This job will include being part of a small team that works closely together but this person will also work independently at times. If you have ever worked in cheesemaking or fermentation, than you know there is always lots of equipment and dishes in need of washing and a requirement for high standards when it comes to sanitation. We have a lot going on and make a number of different products but it is all on a small scale and sold mostly through our two stores direct to consumer. Because of the small scale, team work is important and ability to change gears and work on different projects throughout the day is necessary. Prior schooling or experience with fermented products is helpful in this position.
