Bread Baking Position

We are looking to hire a bread baker for our organic, on-farm bakery. The ideal candidate will have experience baking artisan style breads, including slow fermented sourdoughs, as well as "yeasted" loaves and pastries, both sweet and savory. Lamination experience is preferred, but not required.
We grind our own organic wheat, rye, and spelt berries, and have access to many exciting fruits and vegetables from our farm, so the ability to bake creatively and think outside the box is a must!
This position averages about 20-30 hours per week. Late afternoon/evening bakes or early morning bakes- we are flexible. Most weekends off. 

Qualities we're looking for: 
*creativity and problem solving in regards to recipe development 
*ability to self-motivate (we're not into micro-managing!)
*reliability and honesty
*curiosity and a passion for organic food 
*ability to lift 50+ lbs. 
*friendliness! 

Compensation is an hourly wage and will be commensurate with baking experience. Please send a resume to abigailthorpe@ymail.com along with a brief paragraph on why you'd like to bake with us!

Full Time Farm Stand/Store Position

We're in search of someone to work in our farm stand/store!

Duties include: assisting customers with their purchases, cashing out customers, washing and packaging produce, sorting and setting up produce displays, packaging dry goods, and picking some produce for sales. 

The ideal candidate will have a strong passion for organic food, and will be knowledgeable and able to answer customer's questions relating to cooking and care of our produce. Candidates must be friendly and able to work well with others! The ability to creatively display produce in an attractive and efficient manner is crucial. Produce can be heavy, so the ability to lift 50+ repeatedly is required, as well as the ability to work on your feet all day. 

Our farm store is open year-round, Monday-Saturday. Most work days average 8.5-10 hours per day. The ability to work most Saturdays is a requirement. Hours per week will vary slightly, but 40 hours or more will be typical, with holidays and Sundays off.
