Kitchen Production Staff needed now!

Seaquist Orchards Farm Market | Sister Bay, WI

Posted Date 1/31/2020
Description

Seaquist Orchards Farm Market is a premier destination for shopping and fun on the northern tip of the Door County peninsula in Wisconsin. We are family owned and operated with fruit orchards, a processing plant, a canning company, and farm market with an in-store bakery.  We specialize in cherries and apples and offer them to our customers in a variety of forms - fresh off the tree, canned in fillings or jams, baked in pies and other goodies, pressed into juice and even dried and covered in chocolate!  We are family friendly and have events and festivals throughout the summer.  Outside our market there is a large playground area with a rope maze and peddlecarts for kids of all ages to enjoy.  

The Farm Market is a seasonal operation with our retail store and bakery open from mid-May to late October.  However, we are looking to hire a dedicated group of individuals to work a flexible year-round schedule in our bakery.  We have grown immensely and have much prep work and production to do in the off-season months.  Not only do we make made-from-scratch pies, but we have cookies, turnovers, coffeecakes and more offered daily.  Being open in the summer and fall means that those seasons require more time than the winter months and fortunately there is plenty of time to rest and relax in the off-season.  Come and join our team today!
