    Organization: Shagbark Seed & Mill

    Shagbark Seed & Mill, of Athens, Ohio, seeks representatives for sampling organic, Ohio-grown staple foods at participating locations in Cincinnati and Dayton at least 12 hours/month. 

    Summary: Upon visiting some of the most vibrant and diverse farmers markets across the country, we noticed they were still lacking the crops that account for most of the world’s nutrition and cropland - staple grains and beans. Our story starts with a case of existential anxiety. In 2007, we asked: Why are grains and beans not part of the burgeoning local foods movement? And so Shagbark Seed & Mill was born in Athens, Ohio.

    Our measure of success is creating a model that helps other regions form the dynamic networks necessary to start their own seed cleaning hubs, flour mills, and all the related enterprises needed to reclaim staple food production– local bakeries, tortillerias, malt houses, breweries, pizzerias, feed mills, oil presses, and more– all sourcing the organic crop they use from their region instead of distant grain elevators and mills.

    Description: Starting a staple foods revolutions comes with much grassroots effort - That's why we need you! We are hiring passionate representatives to sample our organic, Ohio-grown products in groceries and markets in the Cincinnati and Dayton area. Your efforts have a direct impact on supporting and growing regional staple food systems, educating tasters about bean and grain production, and showing customers available solutions right here in their region that support a healthy environment and local economy. 

    Representatives may work a flexible part-time schedule based on their availability - usually 4 hour shifts on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays - at least 3 times/month. This is a contract position starting at $13.50/hour with .50¢ performance based raise each month capped at $15.50/hour. 

    Duties & Responsibilities:

    -Learn Shagbark products inside and out to represent fully.

    -Sample products and converse with customers at markets and groceries across Ohio.

    -Share cultural information about beans & grains while educating about organic, non-gmo, and local food choices.

    -Occasionally attend special events like conferences and store openings.

    -Communicate with store personnel about stocking, product placement, and assistance throughout the product demonstration.

    -Provide detailed reports with traffic, feedback, and questions after each sampling. 

    Qualifications:

    Samplers must be passionate about local food have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Samplers must have reliable transportation, email response skills, and be reliable to commitments. A plus for persons with customer service experience and willingness to sample in Cincinnati and Dayton.

    To Apply:

    Send a resume and more about yourself to Janice Brewer at demos@shagbarkmill.com. Please visit our website for more information and inspiration!
