We are looking for someone who is passionate about artisanal baking and cares about organic farming. This would be a part time position to start, probably turning into a full time position quickly. Predominantly helping to make bread and pastries. Could include deliveries and selling.
Wildflower Bakery is a very new Artisanal Bakery located in the colourful village of Havelock, Ontario about 30 minutes east of Peterborough on Highway 7. We are not currently a retail bakery. We use a commercial space to bake in and sell predominately through Farmer's Markets (Peterborough and Havelock) as well as some wholesale. It is currently a one man show and I (Scott) need some help. Demand is growing and we want to fulfill that demand. We make a fairly wide selection of breads and pastries for such a small bakery. Our focus is using organic and/or local ingredients for all of our baked goods. Including some produce from our 1.5 acre homestead. Also located within the town limits.
Some professional experience in a commercial bakery (bread/pastries) or kitchen (cooking/pastries) is preferred. With that said, someone who is passionate about what we are doing, can pick up the skills quickly and is willing to work through some of the growing pains of a new business would definitely be considered. This job is very physically demanding. Requires standing on concrete floor for extended periods of time, lifting heavy loads (not over 25kg), and doing repetitive tasks. Working sometimes long hours at all times of the day and night. On weekends (only part of Saturdays). It also smells really good, includes fresh bread and pastries, and is warm and dry. Transportation to the bakery in Havelock is required.
The wage is $15/hour to start.
