Cheese lovers can now apply for a dream job as a cheesemaker on a picturesque Fife farm.

The St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company in Fife is looking to hire a cheesemaker to join the team and help create their range of award-winning cheeses.

Based in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, the family-run dairy farm turned their hand to cheese making a few years ago and now have a range of award-winning cheeses, made using the raw milk produced by their herd of Friesian Holstein cows.

Now the team are looking for an “enthusiastic, hard-working and physically fit” cheesemaker to join the ranks.

The job advert states: “The successful candidate will learn how to make our award winning Anster, Red Anster and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar, and will assist in all aspects of the cheesemaking process, as well as caring for cheese during maturation, cutting and packing for orders and cleaning of equipment and premises.”

Previous experience in a food production environment is advantageous but not essential as training will be provided.

Their cheeses could also often be bought at Bowhouse Market, a monthly food, drink and craft market held in the nearby Balcaskie Estate.
