Popcorn Production Coordinator

For years, we’ve taken pride in our farm-grown popcorn. We sell our kernels and on-the-cob popcorn kits both at the market and through wholesale to other small businesses. People who choose our popcorn are looking for a simple, old-fashioned treat that they can bring home and enjoy. And we’re connecting them with more than a treat - we’re helping them start a new tradition.

We’re looking for two motivated team members who get just as excited about carrying on that tradition as we are. Our popcorn production specialist is responsible for connecting the popcorn we grow with the people who enjoy it. They monitor production and ensure quality so that our customers continue to get the product that they’ve loved. They’re careful, diligent, and attentive to the details of the work. If that sounds like you, we’d love to meet you!

- Fulfill orders from multiple ordering platforms

- Monitor the production process
- Carry out basic quality and testing checks
- Pack goods for shipping

Full-Time Market Team

The market is many visitors’ entry to the farm. They might come to pick up a share, or to shop for some local produce, or because they see a sign along the road. But the market is just a door. It’s an invitation to a deeper engagement with the land. A more intentional way of life. Slower, more deliberate movement.

As a member of the market team, you open the door to the farm. You create a space that encourages engagement and that helps people find what they need. You’re a greeter, an artist, an interpreter, and you do it all in the context of a life lived in tune with the land.

General List of Tasks:
- Being a high-level market employee that works dynamically on the Market floor
- Flexibility to move between roles and support where necessary 
- Ability to communicate clearly, politely, and directly to other team members.
- Ability to work as a team and also to accomplish tasks alone for many hours.
- Positive attitude, able to interact with customers while still completing job duties.
- Thrives in a continually changing, fast-paced environment.
- Moves quickly and can accomplish tasks efficiently and properly.

Pay is hourly, based upon experience. Please submit your resume and cover letter to jobs@petersenfarm.com.  Indicate the job you are applying for in the email body text and subject line. We’ll be scheduling all interviews for May 16. We can’t wait to meet you and get a sense of your vision.
