$15-20/hr Douglassville pa job
Phone Number: 6106210508
We are a small, family-owned, grass-fed dairy operation that is looking for a qualified individual to produce dairy products and manage our on-farm commercial kitchen while helping us grow and expand distribution of our products.
This is a position for a detail-oriented, self-motivated individual who has good time management skills and is comfortable working in a solitary fashion the majority of the time.
You will be making yogurt and kefir in different flavors and with different packaging concepts. We use glass jars for some of our yogurt, which can be sanitized and reused to reduce plastic waste. You will be also be helping to create new flavors as we expand our markets.
Special attention must be paid to the small details associated with production, packaging, sanitization, and documenting for Grade A requirements. Other duties include developing a production schedule to ensure that the correct amount of product is available to fill orders, managing product and ingredient inventory, and maintaining a clean kitchen environment. You must be able to lift 45 lbs.
We have protocols in place for production techniques but are open to discussing new ideas that may improve efficiency. While a lot of your time will be spent alone once training is completed and you are comfortable with the procedures, we will be available for meetings and if concerns or questions arise.
We are currently in the process of ordering new equipment to help streamline the production process, and are gearing up for larger scale production. We would like to start you out with a training period during weekend hours with the goal of transitioning to a weekday schedule of about 30-40 hours a week.
Please contact us for the unique opportunity to be part of the growing movement of local farmers who self brand.
