Farm Café Kitchen Lead

Bennetts Willow Barn, Worcester

Salary: Starting at £22,000, depending on skills and experience

Bennetts Willow Barn is a one year old farm café for a fifth generation working dairy farm on the outskirts of Worcester. Opening in July 2021 in a wow-factor building with a sun drenched decking area over our wildlife pond, we are looking to broaden what we produce in our own kitchen using our own produce. So we need an individual to join our existing team to cook our amazing all day breakfasts & lunches, but also to help develop more of a farmhouse kitchen brand, with bonus potential for the successful candidates accomplishments in developing and growing this new arm of the enterprise.

We are therefore looking for an enthusiastic, creative and forward thinking individual with a keen love for creative baking as we really want to start pushing the limits for showstoppers that we offer to our customers. Think amazing brownies, cakes and traybakes, along with quiches made using our own cream and eggs, pies made using our own beef, and scotch eggs using our own eggs and pork, and other well-loved farmhouse classics, to sell for eating in the farm café and in our new farm shop area, which is our next planned expansion.

Every other weekend working is a requirement, as is a passion for supporting local farming and produce. It is imperative that the individual buys into our ethos of using as much as our own produce from the farm as possible, along with supporting other local farmers where possible too. We are a friendly and hard working team, and look forward to welcoming a new member to help grow this exciting new idea.

The right individual will be earmarked for progression to take on the role of catering manager in the medium term future, so we are looking for someone who wants to stay long term and really help invest in the growth of an exciting new business.
