Join Our Team

Small Batch Kitchen is a woman-owned, specialty food business with two main components. 

  • A production kitchen where we cook up low-sugar fruit spreads, infuse sea salts, ferment krauts and hot sauces, frozen soups, complete meals, and more. We use local produce and are excited about starting a new direct farm co-packing program to help support more local farms in our area.

  • A specialty food and gift market where we sell our products, in addition to locally sourced milk and eggs, specialty foods, meats, artisan soaps, local art, etc. We also sell specialty cooking equipment, sustainable living products, and native gardening supplies.

 

We encourage all staff to share ideas - on recipes, products to carry in the market, or on efficiency ideas. We are a small team and we believe in working hard while having fun and maintaining a work life balance. We offer flexible scheduling (although some evenings and weekends may be required). 

 

We are looking for some great people to join our team. If you are passionate about food, want to work in a supportive and flexible environment, and want to be involved in a quickly growing small business - then we want to hear from you!
