About Us

Lazy Eight Stock Farm is a 420 acre Certified Organic farm located on the banks of the Paint Lick Creek in Madison and Garrard counties. The farm family consists of Carla and Lothar Baumann and their son, Bryce, his wife Anna, and their children, Jack and Molly. Carla’s great-uncles started farming the land in 1947. In 1979 Lothar, a high school teacher and woodworker, and Carla, a public health nurse, raised their first crop of sweet corn to sell at the Berea Farmer’s Market. Bryce - today the first full time farmer in the family in four generations - raised his first crops of sweet corn, tomatoes, and strawberries as a middle schooler. The farm continued to operate traditionally for many years with cattle and tobacco, even as Bryce was learning how to raise produce, livestock and eggs without synthetic inputs. The last crop of tobacco was raised in 1997 and in 2011, we sold our last group of conventional feeder calves. In 2012, we joined the USDA Certified Organic Program. Our love of the land and the work, and our desire to farm in a way that is aligned with our values, led us to Community Supported Agriculture. We began our CSA in 2012, and it has become the lifeblood of the farm.

Which Season is Right for You?

​Early Season is a good choice if you want all the spring greens, strawberries, and summer vegetables, but find yourself with limited time to cook in the fall.

Late Season is a good choice if you prefer to start with the common summer veggies and experience the comforting flavors of the fall harvest.

Extended Season includes everything from strawberries and asparagus to winter squash and sweet potatoes. To experience the full season on our farm this is the way to go.
