Herdsman/cheesemaker Opportunity

3 Level Farm, located in South China, Maine, hosts several business enterprises on the 142 acres that make up the farm. A goat dairy and cheese making space, cut flower production, cultivated mushrooms and the vegetable production ground for Dig Deep Farm all make use of the property. Owner of the dairy goat herd and creamery, Christopher Hahn is hoping to transition out of dairy goat care and creamery production and is looking for someone to assume responsibility for the herd and dairy production. These activities would become the sole enterprise for the new herdsman/cheesemaker. The farm community, currently three families and a few others, has room to grow and would imagine that the herdsman/dairy producer would formally join the community after a suitable trial period and as a part of the completed transition. Currently dairy products are sold from the farm store and several farmers markets. Fresh and aged cheeses, yogurt, milk and meat all contribute to the dairy’s income. The land could support considerably more animals than the eleven milking does in this year’s herd. If you find this description at all appealing, don’t hesitate to inquire. [email protected].
