Zak possesses an eclectic resume, from commercial fishing in Alaska, to selling shoes in Boston, and now making cheddar cheese here at the farm. It is only natural, then, that he possess a Bachelors degree in English. The quiet calm of early mornings in the cheeseroom, watching the sun rise while the milk stirs, is always a favorite part of the cheesemaking day. When not at the farm, Zak likes to ride his bike, travel, get lost in the woods, read and write.
