It is official, I have started a new chapter of my life, I am now a real boy…sorry, I am now a “real” Cheese Maker. After helping out at Smoky Valley Artisan Cheese, for the past 6 months, I have accepted a place with them in Production and Marketing. I know those are fancy titles, but what does it mean? I means that I will be making cheese for Smoky Valley, and I will be selling cheese at a Farmers Market in Edmonton (more details will follow on the markets).
I work two jobs and help out at Smoky Valley making cheese, in order to do this I am leaving one of the jobs that I have been with for 20 years. Am I nervous? Yes I don’t want to screw this up. Am I happy? Over the moon.
I want to thank Leslie and Alex from Smoky Valley Artisan Cheese for giving me this opportunity and especially my family for supporting me through this transition, I officially have the best wife and kids in the world.
