The Lowcountry Farm Box operates in a similar manner to a CSA – this means that subscribers understand that we are a small farm, and the exact cuts of meat, # of eggs, variety of veggies, etc. may fluctuate from month-to-month based on season, butcher availability, weather, or any of the many other factors inherent to small-scale farming that fall outside of our control. That said, we guarantee that you will get the full value of the box every month – substitutions are always made in equal or greater, never lesser, value.
We are making a change for the Lowcountry Farm Boxes in 2023: subscribers will now have the option each month to customize their boxes. If you do not wish to customize, there will always be an option to have us fill the box with a variety of chicken, pork cuts, sausage, bacon, eggs, veggies, etc. based on availability.
A survey will be sent out at the end of each month with the available meat, veggie and egg options. You will select the quantity of each product that you would like in your box for the upcoming month, as well as your pickup or delivery date. If your selections exceed the box value, you will be given the option to be invoiced for the additional product, or, for us to remove product as-needed to meet the box value. If your selections come in under box value, we will add additional quantities of the products you selected.
The tables below show a few examples of custom-built boxes, to give you a sense of what you might expect each month. Please remember that product options are anticipated, and we cannot guarantee availability 100% of the time – options will change slightly month-to-month:
Example #1: Regular Box – Custom Selections
Note that the total here comes out to $271 USD. The Regular Box value is $267, but as long as your selections are within +/- $10 we can usually make this work without having to remove/add product, or invoice you for extras, as most meat cuts are not packed in perfectly rounded weights of 1 lb, 2 lbs, etc.
Example #2: Small Box – Custom Selections
Example #3: Large Box – Custom Selections
