About Our Farm Stand and Online Store
In 2020 we opened the doors to our beautiful new farm stand as a way to offer a-la-carte farm goods to supplement our vegetable CSA. The Sweetland Farm Stand is a self-service store, open daily 7am-8pm. We sell carefully selected food items from 40+ local farmers and producers. In addition to walk-in sales, we offer a weekly online pre-order option (“Sweetland Staples”) that enables us to reduce waste, order exact quantities, and distribute orders through a contactless curbside pickup model. Our focus is on responsible, local production, and single-source items of top quality.
We seek a full-time, year-round manager to take on overall managerial responsibility for both the physical and online Farm Stand enterprise. The successful candidate will be entrepreneurial, self-motivated, creative, organized, and have a strong enthusiasm for local food. Strong computer and communication skills required.
