We are committed to supporting local and regional growers and increasing awareness and transparency around what’s in your food and where it came from.

All our products are vegan, nut-free and gmo-free. They all incorporate local and organic ingredients, though not all are certified organic. We make all our value-added products ourselves in the Mad River Valley, VT.
Vermont Bean Crafters (VBC) exists to joyfully serve the tastiest in local, organic and nourishing food.
VBC’s first endeavor and the touchstone of our business is making value-added products for wholesale markets-bringing nourishing whole foods to the public in easily prepared meal components. Our first such offering was black bean burgers and now includes a large variety of products.
Basically we take local, organic vegetables, herbs, and grains and turn them into thoughtful, soulful variations of whole food plant-based products. We are a quickly growing business located at Kingsbury Market Garden in Warren, VT. Our products are gluten-free, vegan, GMO-free and locally sourced.

THE OPPORTUNITY: Interested parties will find themselves immersed in a commercial kitchen setting. The bulk of work we need done is getting in the mix in the kitchen and processing the britches off local produce, mixing batter, making patties, labeling and packaging. Other kitchen duties include dishes (and there's a lot of them), mopping, sweeping and general maintenance to keep the space sparkling. We are looking for someone who can commit two to three days a week for 8-10 hours each day. Good, hard, dependable, meditative work that amounts to thousands of pounds of local organic products nourishing the bellies of people from all walks of life each week.
Someone with culinary and production backgrounds will strike our fancy. The ability to lift 50 pounds and be on one's feet for 8-10 hours a day is a requirement. The work can be monotonous and repetitive.
One must also be a team-player and have the ability to problem-solve and work on their own. Competence is a must. One ought not be shy. If you whistle whilst washing dishes and can deal with a fusion of blue grass, '80s hits, yogic chanting, hip-hop and mariachi music in the workplace, please do inquire. If not, it still may be worth getting in touch. Just no Grumps please.
Compensation involves a base-pay of $12.50. Currently we are looking for someone to fill in in the kitchen from mid-July through December while a staff member is on maternity leave. If the position is extended due to need compensation most likely will increase. That base is layered with a daily, paid, free lunch. Compensation this position is PAID: hourly, under $15/hr How to apply
