Pate Cook – Now hiring

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We’re looking for a pate cook who will make our mushroom pates for farmers market and grocery sales.

The work: Prep ingredients, cook and mix mushroom pates, then package into tubs and jars at our commercial kitchen space in Amery, WI.

Work may also include other mushroom prep and packing at our farm in Clayton, WI.

Hours: Pate work at this point is sporadic, and no more than once per week. Pate work is expected to grow, especially during the winter, as demand for our products increases.  There may or may not be mushroom prep and packing work during the winter.

Duration: Pate work is ongoing, but sporadic.

Compensation: hourly work at $16 per hour.

The Team: Pate work is independent, though our commercial kitchen often has several others working around or in the kitchen too.  Our Summer farm team is about two or three full employees, while our winter team slims down to a single production worker.

Work Location: We make our mushroom pates at a beautiful and well-outfitted kitchen in Amery, WI, which is a little over an hour from the Twin Cities.  Other prep and packing work is at our farm nearby – a beautiful 38 acre farm at 827 15th St., Clayton, WI 54004.

Selection Criteria: We are looking for someone with a background in food preparation who can work independently, quickly, and to a high standard.  Candidates with food manager certification a plus.

Hiring deadline: We will hire as soon as we find the right candidate.

Application Details: Please email Jeremy at with a description of why you’re interested in the position.  He’d also like to see a resume and at least two professional references.

Thanks for your interest in our Pate Chef position!
