Be our next Farm-Bakery Assistant!
We are an ecological vegetable farm and wood-fired bakery in Nelson County. We grow 50+ vegetables on an acre and a half and bake sourdough breads and pastries in our 5’ x 7’ oven. This is our eighth year selling mostly at farmers markets, which we do 10 months of the year. We see ourselves as part of a community of food producers all doing their small part to build a sustainable regional food system.
You will help our bakers with production tasks in our kitchen, like shaping croissants, making fillings, processing fruits and vegetables from our farm for use in the bakery, packaging baked goods, filling orders, and sorting the goods into 2-3 sales channels. You will assist the bakers with egg-washing pastry, dishwashing, and other cleaning tasks, and may help with other tasks as needed, like receiving goods, and taking inventory. You would have the option of more hours and more responsibilities if things go well.
You are good at counting and record-keeping, can follow instructions, and can speak up when you notice something doesn’t seem right. If you love food, that’s a bonus. You are organized and consistently attentive to cleanliness and food safety.
Hours: 15-25 hours / week, flexible Wed-Sun, but must be available Fridays and one day on the weekend.
Compensation: $15 / hr. We pay monthly. Benefits include unlimited free access to unsold farm produce and baked goods.
We look forward to hearing from you!
