What’s in the box?
The box contents vary depending on the time of the season. This is a great feature of Community Supported Agriculture, that your share provides seasonal eating. Find out what’s in the box.
Is the share a good value?
Overall, based on various comparison studies we’ve seen and also based on analyses of our own share prices, you can expect your Angelic Organics CSA share to cost about 1/4 to 1/3 less than if you bought comparable organic vegetables from a grocery store such as Whole Foods.
How much produce should I expect?
We do our best to fill your 3/4 bushel box to the brim, equivalent to about 1 & 1/2 regular paper grocery bags. From late summer through fall, your box may bulge with over 20 lbs of produce. One full share generally satisfies the needs of two people with a vegetarian diet or four people with a mixed diet.

Farmer John Writes
Learn a great deal about how lifelong Farmer John reflects on and guides the farm forward in his Farm News Columns.
Your Very Own Farm, Without all the Work!
When you join our CSA, you enter into a relationship to more than the food you receive from us; you enter into a relationship with the source of your food, a farm—a farm you can visit. This is what distinguishes the CSA program from all the other ways you can buy your vegetables—in a certain way, as a shareholder, you have your very own farm. You don’t have to plow the fields, pay the crew, keep the books, maintain the equipment, or harvest the crops, but still, through your purchase of a share, you will probably start referring to Angelic Organics as our farm. Read more about relationship to a farm in Farmer John’s blog post, Farm Monogamy.
Things are a lot different now in the healthy food movement, compared to the 90’s when Angelic Organics was one of the first CSA’s in the region. There are many CSA farms serving the Chicago area today, and numerous other ways for people to receive organic vegetables. So, we made a list of what makes Angelic Organics special. We hope our list makes you as excited about Angelic Organics as we are.
