Company description

All year round since 2004, we work the dirt at Fat Stone Farm in Lyme, Connecticut. Sure, it’s frozen dirt in the winter, but that’s the time for maple sugaring!

Our unique farm products are made with heritage New England ingredients, sometimes with an updated twist. If we can't grow it, we won't put it in our products. That's why we say "eat food from the dirt, not the lab". Many of our products are Certified Organic.

We named our farm “Fat Stone” partly to poke fun at ourselves, partly to make people remember us, and partly to remind us to laugh sometimes! Liz drew the stone walls depicted on our labels from the walls we built on the property – entirely with our very own fat stones. Some of these walls are simply extensions of the old field walls built by previous farmers.

Job description
As you wind your way up the hill to our farm, you pass the tiny hamlet of Hamburg, a Registered National Historic area, dotted with homes, cottages, and a former inn, which were built when ship-building, fishing, hunting, and trapping were the primary industries of the hamlet. Several significant native american areas of archeological importance are just down the cove. You may spot migrating ducks, nesting ospreys, or the odd loon. 

If you know what HACCP, FSMA, and Better Process Control School are, and if you want to work in a peaceful setting, this may be the job for you! We are seeking a team mate to help with bottling, labelling, and packing our unique farm products. 30-40 hours/week during the months of November through February.

Requirements: Experience in food processing (anything from home canning to seafood). Comfort with small machines and appliances. Neat and tidy. Able to lift 35 lbs, stand for the better part of a working day, speak fluent English, and have references. Okay with filling out paperwork and with following food safety rules. Reliable transportation.

Optional but helpful: experience playing a team sport, and eye for detail, and interest in the Certified Organic program. BPCS certified, HACCP certified, or Acidified Food certified. SafeServ is not applicable. 

Check out our website to see how we're making our small part of Connecticut land-productive again. We value (and try to embody ourselves) honesty, gratitude, good communication, and a continual-learning mindset. Thank you.
