Capay Mills, Yolo County’s premier (OK, only) registered, vertically integrated artisan flour mill, is looking for a part-time mill associate.

We need someone who can commit to a minimum of 8 hours per week, starting ASAP,  with the possibility of additional hours as orders grow (as they have been). Our shop is in beautiful downtown Esparto, 25 miles (35 minutes) from Davis. 

Capay Mills produces unique stone-ground flours from locally grown grain (mainly heirloom varieties), for exceptional bakeries, restaurants and retail customers in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento. We mill grain we grow ourselves, as well as by partner growers in Capay Valley and northern California. We are on track to increase our capacity significantly in the coming year.

The ideal candidate is interested in helping build a sustainable local grain economy, and ideally has experience or interest in artisan baking, bread-making, brewing, distilling or other grain-driven endeavors. You must be capable of lifting 60#, and can tolerate working in a dusty and fairly loud environment (breathing and hearing protection is provided). We offer the opportunity to engage as deeply as you’re interested in the local grain movement, from growing to milling to marketing.

Work days and schedule are flexible, though our normal production days are Tuesdays through Thursdays. 

In addition to milling production work, we are also looking for a market associate to represent Capay Mills at one or more of our farmers’ markets per month on Saturdays (Ferry Plaza, San Francisco, or Davis Farmers’ Market) and Sundays (Temescal Farmers’ Market, Oakland). 

Contact me at, putting “mill associate” in the subject line, and let me know what interests you about the position.
