Seeking Order Processors for Seasonal Positions


Dancing Deer Baking Company has been in business for 22 years, and is recognized as one of the food industry’s premier bakery and gift brands (selling cookies, brownies, cakes and baking mixes) in the specialty food, natural products, mainstream grocery and direct-to-consumer marketplaces.

Many of the Company’s products have won national Specialty Food Association excellence awards for both product and packaging design, and have been recognized by the likes of The Today Show, GMA, The View, Fox News, NY Times and USA Today.

Aside from its core baked goods business, Dancing Deer proudly serves as a mission-focused company that contributes to One Family, Inc. through the Sweet Home Project initiative. The One Family Scholars (OFS) program supports the premise that higher education is the best permanent pathway out of poverty. This program provides scholarships for low-income and formerly homeless parents to attend college and improve their employment opportunities. For the team at Dancing Deer, this mission commitment extends beyond philanthropy to the Company’s workforce, local community, the environment and important social concerns.
