Position Description

Seed to Culture is a small scale vegetable farm and fermented food processor. We grow mixed vegetables and fruit using organic practices on over 3 acres of productive land in Lillooet, BC. Our business, as farmers and fermenters, has been in operation for over two years but we have been market farmers for over ten years. We sell our vegetables at Farmers Markets and use our vegetables at our small food production facility to make sauerkraut and other fermented products. We also have a small retail location where we sell our vegetables, fermented products, and other Lillooet grown or made products.

Our goal is to create an ecologically, environmentally, and physiologically regenerative business that provides the community with a source of locally produced healthy, delicious product. To create a financially viable preserved food business based around the production of value added healthy fermented products. We value holistic approaches to farming, food production, and consumption. We value practices that are regenerative to the environment and our bodies. Our farm is both certified organic and in transition as we farm on three different properties.

About the Opportunity:

We are looking for a motivated, upbeat, adaptable person to join our team! Thanks to funding provided by the Youth Employment Program we are hiring a candidate that must be a Canadian citizen, and 30 or under. Must be willing to work outdoors on hot days, lift up to 40lbs, and be keen to learn how to farm and ferment! This is hard work and you must have a positive attitude.

Job Tasks:

You will be involved in all stages of our business, which involves:

  • Farm tasks – planting seedlings, weeding (lots of weeds!), harvesting vegetables and fruit, and washing and preparing produce for markets
  • Kitchen tasks – washing and chopping vegetables, and packaging fermented foods
  • Customer Service tasks – selling products at Farmers Markets and our Retail Store
