Shaker Mountain Canning Co. is looking for a market and sales manager. The person hired for this new position will be responsible for creating new selling opportunities for fresh vegetables and value-added products. We are looking for someone with experience selling at farmers’ markets and creating relationships with retail food stores, in New York City as well as upstate. Most importantly, we are looking for a self-starter with a positive attitude who is passionate about creating a regional food system to join our team.
The full slate of responsibilities for this position is still to be determined based on the interest of the new employee and needs of the company. However, projects we are interested in pursuing include setting up a local low-income CSA; generating co-packing business through relationships with other local food entrepreneurs; representing SMCC at conferences and food events; and maintaining our website and social media efforts. We especially want to apply to, and sell our products in, more regional farmers’ markets and retail food stores. Farming and/or kitchen experience is a plus, as our team members often help each other during busy periods.
Shaker Mountain Canning Co. is a small farm and food-processing business in New Lebanon, New York (Columbia County). We take great pride in growing produce, supporting our local farms and creating delicious products using local ingredients.
