SUSTAINABLE & ORGANIC FARMING

Position: Farm Incubator Opportunity & Part Time Delivery Driver
Type: part-time job + farming opportunity + accom. (see below)
Company/Farm: The Conscious Kitchen
Location: West Grey, near Guelph & Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario

The Conscious Kitchen is a prepared meal and grocery delivery service that helps people eat in alignment with their values in the Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, and surrounding area. That means local & seasonal ingredients, plant-based, and zero-waste packaging.

We have just moved our kitchen to the West Grey area, a 1.5 hour drive to Guelph and KW. We are seeking a driver for our weekly deliveries, about 10-15 hours per week, using our van. The pay would be $20 per hour.

As part of this position, we are also offering a unique farm incubator opportunity on the property. We are open to many different options (vegetables, herbs, flowers) but require the operation to use organic and/or regenerative practices, and not involve livestock.

The property is a beautiful 4.5 acres of forest and meadow, with a large log home, small barn, and surrounded by wetlands and conservation land. We have about ¾ acres of land that can be farmed. There are vibrant markets in Owen Sound (30 minutes north), Guelph (1.5 hours south), or Toronto (2 hours southeast).

What we would provide is:

  • Free use of land for your first full year (and sliding scale pricing afterwards)
  • Free use of our walk in fridge and full commercial kitchen
  • Use of our refrigerated cargo van
  • Full accommodation in our brand new off-grid tiny house (full electricity, plumbing, heat, kitchen, bathroom, etc.)
  • Free business mentorship (from us, a business owner and a food business consultant)
  • Opportunity to purchase into the property as a co-op in the future

We are seeking an individual or couple who would be a good fit with the community we are seeking to create. As we are two queer women (one of whom is POC) in our mid-twenties, you must be queer friendly, vegan-friendly, eco-conscious and intersectional (anti-racist, etc.). Queer, BIPOC, and/or womxn are especially encouraged to apply.

We like our space, but also enjoy community-oriented time during potlucks, campfires, etc. We plan to host retreats & workshops on the property in the future revolving around our interests & values (nature connection, growing & preserving food, writing & art, etc.).

Please email us at theconsciouskitchenguelph@gmail.com telling us about yourself and why you are interested in the opportunity. We are not looking for a resume! We look forward to hearing from you.

- Celeste and Simone
