Kitchen Assistant, Part Time
We are looking for a part-time kitchen assistant for our commercial kitchen this season.
Position will start in July and run through October and will be 3-4 days per week.
Duties will include preparing a range of products including cookies, cakes, popsicles, quiche, pot pies and soups, production for Wednesday and Saturday farmers' markets, order fulfillment for our online ordering system and high volume canning during the height of the growing season. This includes pickles, relishes, jams and jellies.
There is some heavy lifting (up to 50 lbs) and this position requires standing at least 7 hours some days.
The fall season is our busiest time here at the farm kitchen as apple picking gets under way. Products change throughout the season as we have produce available and the needs of our customers change. We think this is the best part of the job as there is room for product development, creativity and a way to keep things interesting and fun!
Most of this work is cooperative rather than solo, but the ideal candidate will be working independently one day per week when the kitchen coordinator has the day off or is away.
This position will be trained on our baking procedures and canning practices in a commercial kitchen setting which include food safety and proper sanitation practices. Some dish washing and cleaning as needed at the end of the work day but that is also a group effort.
This is a part time, seasonal position as our farm is open from May-November. Some experience is necessary. Pay starts at $15/hour with room for growth.
