Each week, all shares will be planned with core items and preference items. The share contents list will be posted early in the week, giving you time to review and determine your preference items from a list of available options.
Core items will by those we know everyone typically eats, e.g., tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, and beans. Every now and then will include something uncommon to introduce you to new produce. Preference items will include things we know are popular with some people, e.g., arugula, beets, peas, and green onions.
If you are happy with our standard share, no need to communicate with us. Requests for customized shares must be received within a time frame, allowing us to harvest and pack your special request.
At the pick-up site, we will also have a “swap box”, for those who would like to trade out a core item. Simply choose the item you want to replace, put it in the swap bin and get your new selection from the bin.

“My wife and I are truly enjoying the variety of food options in our CSA. We are trying new things and are getting creative with how to prepare these new foods. We especially enjoyed visiting the farm to pick strawberries! Thank you for providing such quality items.”
“First timers here…we love it. Good quality, quantity and variety. Be encouraged and keep it comin!”
“I’ve got kids who’ve never eaten collards, kohlrabi, and bok choy- the novelty of getting the farm bag and seeing what’s inside has sparked their curiosity. They are much more likely to try new things and suggest recipes.” JB, LAZY EIGHT STOCK FARM CSA MEMBER
