The Farms

Elmwood Stock Farm

Elmwood Stock Farm is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, while crops and livestock are well cared for. The 6th-generation family farm produces vegetables, grass-fed beef and lamb, pasture-raised chicken, pork, heritage-breed turkeys, and eggs.

Elmwood’s long-running CSA program offers 3 share sizes, add-on shares of eggs, meats, and pantry items, and all items are USDA Certified Organic. See what's planned for your weekly share and swap items online—plus, skip a share while on vacation and add extras when you're back. The popular on-farm pickup continues, where members choose their own items from all the produce in season.

Elmwood farmers Mac and Ann Stone are the faces you likely see at the farmers market, while Ann’s brother John Bell is on the farm tending the animals and raising the crops. The families share the work load with a great support team, and all work together to produce fresh, high quality CSA shares each week. They encourage members to learn about how food gets from farm to plate on scheduled farm tours, including a CSA day held each spring.

Rootbound Farm is a USDA certified organic family farm located in Oldham County, Kentucky. The farm is run by Ben Abell and Bree Pearsall along with their two small children and a dedicated farm crew. Now in our 9th season, we remain committed to our CSA program as the cornerstone of our business. We offer two box sizes and members have the option to customize their box each week in our easy online store. Customization means that every week we put forth the items that are at peak freshness on the farm and members can view their items online in advance and make changes to their box contents. With customization you get more of the items you love and less of the items you won’t use.

 

Every weekly delivery also comes with a newsletter featuring recipes and storage ideas to help you make the most of your experience.  We also encourage members to follow along with the news from the farm through our active social media communities and our on-farm field days and tours.  We believe that eating locally and organically should be delicious, healthy, and FUN!

Lazy Eight Stock Farm strives to provide our CSA members with the best experience possible. We work to build the connection between you and your food through weekly, customizable deliveries of our Certified Organic produce. We encourage all our members to come to the farm for our CSA harvest events, included with the purchase of your CSA share. Last season our you-pick strawberries and fall pumpkin harvest were wonderful events, and a nice way for everyone to enjoy the farm.

 

The farm family consists of Carla and Lothar Baumann and their son, Bryce, his wire Anna, and their children, Jack and Molly. Our love of the land and the work, and our desire to fam in a way that is aligned with our values led us to Community Support Agriculture. The main CSA season at Lazy Eight Stock Farm runs for 20 weeks, starting with strawberries and asparagus and ending with your favorite fall vegetables. Our CSA members have become the lifeblood of our business, and your membership helps ensure this small farm continues to thrive

Now offering CUSTOMIZABLE farm shares! The traditional farm share model has always been for the farm to give you a box of whatever was grown that week, regardless of a members likes and dislikes. The new customizable approach allows CSA members to make their own choices about what they want to eat based on their preferences and what the farm has in season. If you don’t like beets, you won’t ever see them. If you love zucchini, we’ll make sure you get that!

 

Sustainable Harvest Farm produces USDA-certified organic vegetables, Grass Fed Beef and pork. It is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning and praying by Ford and Amanda Waterstrat. In 2011 they offered their farm’s first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and became the first USDA-Certified Organic Farm in the region. By 2013 they expanded their operation to include grass-fed beef and pastured pork. They continue to look for ways to innovate and expand their farm to provide quality, sustainable and delicious food to their family and community.
