July 2019

We are looking for a Lead Cook/Team Leader that fits our team!

Open Hours: 

Thurs/Fri: 4-8

Sat: 12-8

Sun: 1-5

Do you want to join a team of people committed to growing and preparing fresh, sustainably grown food?

Copeland Springs Farm & Kitchen shares a campus with Fair Game Beverage, Starrlight Mead and Chatham Ciderworks.

Our commercial kitchen offers counter service of vegetarian dishes from our produce, to be enjoyed anywhere on campus or taken to go.  

Copeland Springs Kitchen is seeking a dedicated lead cook/team leader.  You will help drive the menus and the creative use of the produce we have in season on the farm.  We have a base menu we will work from for daily meals but the creative use of extra produce or "seconds" is where you can really shine. 


This is a small commercial kitchen and teamwork and ability to multi-task are critical. Attention to detail, friendly demeanor and tireless customer service are crucial.


Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown, meaning we use organic practices and care about the health of our soils, the food we produce and our customers. We grow a variety of vegetables/fruits, mushrooms and cut flowers.

This is an opportunity to help shape this restaurant and how we serve our community. 

Immediate opening for a weekend cook (about 15 hrs), with option for Thurs/Fri if you want it. 

Anticipate expanding hours in the near future as well. 

So, anywhere from 15-35 hours is possible. More than 35 is quite possible too if that's what you're looking for!

  • Work closely with farm team to plan the menus around seasonal produce

  • Bring creative solutions 

  • Food preparation, presentation and quality control

  • Maintaining a high level of cleanliness in the kitchen

  • Ensure efficient use of immediately available produce

  • Lead kitchen team when manager isn't present
