Pastry Assistant (Philo Ridge Farm)

Organization Philo Ridge Farm
Location 1905 Mt. Philo Road
Charlotte, VT 05445

Philo Ridge Farm is a 400-acre historic farm that brings together the rich cultural past of the region to develop the local agricultural economy and respect the ecosystem. We strive to be a beautiful, functional farm at the forefront of research, innovation, and conversation around our food. The property is used for a mixture of activities and operations including: produce and flower production, a diversified livestock and haying operation, and a growing food service and hospitality program. We are in our third year of production at the farm and plan on expanding our operation soon to include an on-farm market, event space and processing facility. 


The market will provide a retail outlet for all that we grow and raise on our beautiful farm. We will have a prepared foods counter, grass-fed butcher shop, a full-service cheese program, as well as sell farm-fresh produce alongside grocery and specialty housewares that emphasize Vermont's local artisans.  Connected to our market, we have a fully restored barn that will offer a range of educational workshops and events that we hope will further the conversation around our food and provide fun and engaging activities for our community. 

The Pastry Assistant works closely with the Pastry Chef to ensure a high level of quality and standard of all baked goods including breads, breakfast pastries, tarts, cakes, cookies, and executes the proper product rotation of raw ingredients and prepared items.  The Pastry Assistant is responsible for accurate, efficient, and timely execution of bread and pastry recipes as directed by the Executive Chef and Pastry Chef.  He/She is also an active contributor to the open and constant line of communication with all other team members regarding product, production timeline for prepared food items, and ingredients.
