Required Years of Experience
FARMS is a paid six month front-of-house apprenticeship for those with a deep curiosity for the intersection of restaurant hospitality, regenerative agriculture and culinary experimentation.
Apprentices work with the front-of-house team at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, rotating through various dining room positions to expand their knowledge of restaurant operations. Programming also involves weekly readings and discussions, guest speakers, and independent research projects, with the goal of developing interdisciplinary and hands-on food system knowledge. Apprentices will learn about themes including seed breeding, whole grain milling and baking, grass-fed animal processing and ecological fermentation, focusing on the connection between farm, kitchen and human and planetary health.
This position requires a flexible schedule, including availability on evenings and weekends. An ideal candidate prioritizes a guest-orientated approach and works well in a team. A high school diploma is preferred. This role requires manual dexterity, auditory and visual skills, and the ability to follow oral instructions. Reasonable accommodations may be granted to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
Apprentices are expected to execute pre and post-service checklists, and participate in restaurant service based on role (backwaiter, runner, front waiter, etc). Tasks may include: polishing silver and glassware, maintaining plateware organization, crumbing tables and pouring water, greeting guests and assisting with arrival and departure, marking glassware and helping with beverage service, running food and clearing plates, and other duties as assigned by supervisor.
Apprentices are expected to complete readings and assignments, participate in discussion, and assist with hands-on educational and research projects.
