Asgaard Farm & Dairy is a goat dairy, creamery and diversified livestock farm nestled in the breathtaking Adirondack State Park near Au Sable Forks, NY.  We intensively graze 60 milking does, a 100% grass-fed beef herd, and meat goats. We raise broiler chickens and laying hens to provide fertility and parasite management for our pastures. Our creamery produces award-winning cheeses, caramels, soaps and delicious raw milk. We also raise pigs in our woodlands and they are fed whey from the creamery. The farm is proud to be Animal Welfare Approved. We are part of a vibrant and diverse agricultural community, within close proximity to the high peaks.  

We are looking for a motivated, cheese loving creamery intern!

Hours Interns will be expected to work 5 ½ days per week and should expect to milk a couple evenings weekly.  Days may be extra-long depending on the cheese make, staffing farmers markets or when special events are on the calendar. An assignment running from April through November would be ideal.
