Join our team

Are you considering a career in cheesemaking? You have come to the right place to make a start.

Whether you want to become a cheesemaker, pick nettles, help in packing or admin, we are always keen to hear from you. We are currently looking for a nettler to join our team – that all important step in the creation of Cornish and Wild Garlic Yargs. The role will include other daily tasks, including turning the cheeses as they mature. Please contact Dhopkins@lynherdairies.co.uk for more details (and no, the nettles don’t sting!)

If we don’t have any vacancies at the time and if your CV is of interest to us, we will add you to our files for future reference. Experience is not always necessary as we can offer high quality training both here in our dairy near Stithians and at selected colleges in Cornwall. Artisan cheesemakers do need to be relatively fit – it’s a hands-on job and there is quite a bit of lifting and stretching involved!

We are always looking for those who have a real commitment to a career in the food industry or a passion for artisan cheesemaking so even if nothing is showing on this page, it is always worth sending us your CV and a brief letter of introduction for us to keep on our files. We are a friendly team, offering mentoring and support on an individual basis.
