Employment Opportunities

We're small but mighty and located on the rural North Coast of California.

Over 30 years ago, Cypress Grove founder Mary Keehn had a dream of a soft-ripened goat cheese that eventually became an award-winning, iconic cheese. It fueled the growth of one of the most popular creameries in the country. Keeping this dream alive through the decades requires the continued recruitment and training of what has become America’s dream team of cheese.
