... Almost a year ago I was a cheese maker. I worked on a small farm in Mass and I processed milk and made cheddar cheese. I managed the milk room that I worked in. I learned a lot about the dairy industry and the science behind milk. Six months ago after my family and I moved off the farm to see what was out there I actually considered going into cheese making. I met with a local farmer about his dairy but he already had plans and did not need another cheese maker. So I started down the path that led me to become a career firefighter, another passion of mine.
Well last week I got an email from a friend who told me of a posting for a cheese maker at a beautiful small farm. They would provide us with health insurance and a farm house to live in on the property. I had an interview yesterday and it seemed like it went well, we'll see.
SO what of the firefighting?
Short answer is I don't know. I haven't been offered the job yet so maybe nothing. I could still get my medic license so nothings over till its over.
Most of the time life offers the unexpected and you have to decide what feels right. I don't want to stubbornly refuse to accept an opportunity to do something I love.
Well, I'll keep ya posted. Wish us luck as we make some more big decisions!
