We are looking for someone who loves to cook fresh food to join our kitchen team.

Do you love being creative and enjoy using fresh local ingredients in your recipes?

Farndon Fields is an award winning family run business which was established in 1983 and strives to be the ultimate destination for local food and farming. The business is located on the edge of Market Harborough and currently consists of a 500 acre arable farm, a large farm shop with a butchery, deli, garden and a restaurant.

Our Farmer’s Kitchen restaurant creates freshly prepared dishes for breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas, using the produce from our Farm and Farm Shop and is open 10am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sunday. Our philosophy is to cook top quality seasonal food using the produce that has been grown on our farm and the fantastic ingredients that are sold in the Farm Shop. Our products change with the season. The working hours for this role can be flexible to meet the restaurant’s requirements. The role can be full time or part time with some weekend work required.

The team are passionate about providing exceptional quality products. This is the perfect role for someone who is eager to develop and enhance their skills.

You will:

  • share our passion for food with the freshest ingredients and provenance

  • have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment, delivering high quality products with attention to detail for our customers

  • be able to communicate well and work as part of a team.

Our Head Chef Luciano says ‘working onsite for a Farm Shop means there is scope to be creative, we have the freshest ingredients which results in top quality products for our customers.’
