Workplace CSA Program 

The American Board of Family Medicine is offering a workplace CSA pick-up for the 2024 growing season. Employees interested in signing up for a bi-weekly or weekly vegetable share can select the ABFM worksite CSA pickup and easily access local, organic produce with Lazy Eight Stock Farm

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A local produce subscription where members receive weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables and some fruits for 21 weeks during the main growing season (May - September).

A model of buying food focused on building community. A participant pays for a share in advance and becomes an important part of the farm for the whole season.

A weekly box or basket of fresh, KY Proud, and certified organic vegetables. The items in a share are harvested at their peak ripeness to maximize their flavor and quality.

What are the Benefits of CSA?

  • Easy access to healthy fresh food and the opportunity to try new foods.

  • Convenience--pick up your share at work or on the way home.

  • Know the farmer who grows your food. Receive regular newsletters and seasonal recipes.

  • Enjoy the health benefits of increasing vegetable consumption throughout the season.

  • Keep more food dollars local. 

  • Access to local and organic produce.

What to expect in a CSA share?
 
Members can look forward to a delicious diversity of produce throughout the season. Items change from week to week. Lazy Eight Stock Farm grows over 40 different crops for their CSA and often varieties you can't access in the grocery store. Being a CSA member is a great way to try new foods and recipes.
