We are currently seeking hard-working, smart, friendly, experienced kitchen staff to join our team.

We care about our staff as much as we care about our farmers and our customers. The pie shop is ultimately a product of the family that works here! We’ve had a great first season, and now it’s time to find a few excellent additions to our team.

Our kitchen is open, so we roll dough and butcher rabbits in plain sight of our customers. We pay competitively, and tips are distributed evenly amongst the entire staff. This helps in our mission to make food and cooking more approachable, and it facilitates a strong team environment.

*Please have a strong appreciation for farming, cooking, and community!

Though we are absolutely looking for experienced cooks, we also very much believe in ongoing training and will definitely be reviewing/teaching to Piecemeal Pies’ high standards of preparation and food knowledge. We hope you have a willingness to learn and to grow both personally and professionally. We are always looking for applicants that show strong leadership and responsibility.
